The Tangga House
Located in the exclusive Holland Village district of Singapore, the Tangga House is a masterpiece of design by renowned firm Guz Architects. The 7,663 square foot residence was completed in 2009, integrating an airy, open feeling with elements of nature throughout.
And the pool. Oh, the pool.
As described by Guz Architects:
"The house is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional courtyard house, laid out around a central green courtyard with a double height stair and entry area forming the focal point of the project.
The L-shaped plan creates open spaces which encourage natural ventilation and offer resident’s views over the courtyard to the veranda, roof gardens and beyond. Lushly planted roof gardens surround the house and add to the effect that nature is evident in every part of the house.
The large roof above the courtyard creates an indoor and outdoor space leading to the gardens and swimming pool which wraps around two sides of the house."
