Green Revelation: A Detached House with Separate Gardens and Courtyards

Green Revelation 11

It is a three-storey detached house with a rooftop swimming pool and attic located in Singapore. Designed by HYLA Architects, Green Revelation has six separate gardens and courtyards at various levels. It also has a unique sliding aluminum screen that offers an awesome view and protects the house from heat as well.

Privacy is a major concern in this project as the house is surrounded by other houses with higher rear neighbors. At the back of the house, a courtyard is created to let light and ventilation in, screening the house as well. The landscape areas extend upwards to the rooftop pool.

The front facade of this house has a unique sliding aluminum screen to provide awesome views and protect the house from the heat. A deep terrace clad with timber on the ground floor provides a comfortable spot to enjoy the koi pond and beautiful garden. This terrace also provides shade to the house.

The living room of the house has a double volume space and also a family room on the second level. With a grotto, this faces the courtyard and becomes an oasis of tranquility and peace. It is not only a house but also a place to connect with nature.
