Residential Architecture: Hanaha House by mA-style architects: “..The courtyard, known as hanaha, creates a space of spiral movement and familial interaction..The family can move spirally around the flowers and trees to observe and enjoy them from different perspectives..” Despite a truly minimal architect’s description, Hanaha House offers interesting interior volumes, interior courtyard, ample glazing, natural light, privacy, exposed timber rafters and interesting fenestration..

Residential Architecture: Le Mon House by Fabian Tan: “..the red “monster” door is a dominant feature of the frontage and pays homage to large Chinese temple doors. The ground floor main living areas have a linear open concept from the front to the rear of the house. Parts of the architecture are made minimal to highlight the owner’s extensive collection of Chinese antiques..An emphasis on security without sacrificing aesthetics is evident in the details. First, is the sculptural 3d grill window to divert from the notion of common metal security grilles commonly found. Secondly, the layered concrete columns (tiang) is created for strict privacy but also allowing ventilation and ambient light into the space.. The central courtyard was introduced to interconnect the spaces and to provide light. The living room was lifted to have a visual expansion with the first floor. Above the living room, one can enjoy the view of the surrounding forests and hills in a secret rooftop garden..” Ample glazing, natural light, ventilation, exposed timber rafters, interesting interior volumes, courtyard and wood elements, roof garden, views..
