As a typology, the semi-detached house is often perceived as a Siamese twin, reluctantly conjoined to its symmetrical other via a single party wall. The desire to challenge such a notion drives the parti of this single family house. By separating and pulling the main building block away from the party wall, a semi-detached house breaks free. Not only does this formally and aesthetically liberate the house from its neighbour; it also creates a 3 metre-wide fissure into which light and air penetrate deep into its interiors. One enters the house through the front of this fissure, where he is greeted by a double-storey volume foyer naturally lit from above. Light splashes onto the richly-textured brick wall, casting shadows which vary in form and intensity over time. The light leads one up the staircase onto the second storey. By now, the fissure manifests itself as a gathering realm for the family. In this funnel-like, naturally-ventilated space, wind passes through freely from the front to the back, both ends at which pockets of green have been inserted. Deep overhangs and operable blinds protect the interiors where necessary. Herein lies the beauty of the house: a space which is at once sheltered yet connected to its environment. Such is the simple delight of tropical living.

About Aamer Architects

Aamer’s designs are well known for their ‘flair and curves’ as he views every project as a work of Art, conceived through thorough appreciation of site, context and brief forming an interesting ‘dialogue’ between man and nature. He is the design architect for an extraordinary Golf Clubhouse In Guilin, China whilst in Penang, Malaysia his mixed high rise project “The Landmark” is taking shape. One of Aamer’s clients described his works as “haute architecture” in the sense that they are like ‘haute couture’ or ‘haute cuisine’, custom- and tailor-made to each discerning individual….. thus all uniquely different from each other.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
