Gorgeous House Embracing the Power of Simplicity, Singapore

Away from the city rush, the Mandai Courtyard House is a peaceful retreat, a particular residential project, defined in 2011 by the Atelier M+A in Mandai, Singapore. The uniqueness of this house consists in being a simple one-level bungalow, with a gorgeous interior courtyard.  Large sliding glass panels allow a smooth transition between the indoor and the outdoor, connecting the man with his authentic inhabitable environment. The living room and the dining area are also connected to the outdoor through a glossy, narrow wooden deck. Simple and refined, the interior lacks additional décor items, that might disrupt the mellow calm and tidy atmosphere.

The client’s desire was to keep the Mandai Courtyard House as simple as possible, without building a second floor. The interior courtyard has been imagined as the core of the house. Exploring possibilities and challenging boundaries, the designers tried to concentrate everything around the doughnut-like structure: “The ‘doughnut’ configuration allows the owner to enjoy a secured outdoor space inside the building during the evenings after work, while the roof laid with timber deck above the living/dining space is an ‘outdoor living/dining space’ during parties and gathering”. Exhaling serenity and keeping a peaceful atmosphere, the Mandai Couryhard House is surrounded by a maze of white pebble stones. The light tones and the white empower the structure with a strong visual resonance of purity, creating the perfect environment for meditation. You can spend hours looking at the smooth, candy-cotton clouds and experience the serenity of a zen spot, flooded with wisps of simplicity.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
