2-Court House
Kuala Lumpur

Two courtyards that step down the sloping site form the focus to this open naturally ventilated house constructed of fair-face brick and off-form concrete.

Principally a 'passive' house designed to save energy by encouraging minimal or no air-con use and flooding the interior with diffused natural light. Screens of bamboo allow natural breeze and diffused natural light to penetrate all spaces. A ‘Lanai’ inspired meeting and meditation space at the entrance sits within a reflecting pool given privacy by a bamboo ‘forest’.
