Solar Chimney House
Kuala Lumpur

Creating the desired amount of space, privacy & contact with nature was the challenge on a small site in a tight suburban location that has the benefit of a mature tree belt to the rear.

The split-level house is formed by 2 different height blocks at half level height difference. The space between, a triple volume light filled entrance space or ‘atrium’ is the house circulation that allows visual connection between all floors as well as acting as a solar chimney to ventilate the whole house by natural convection.
