A finely detailed, intricately patterned screen envelopes the side façade and main gate of this semi-detached house. Located on a tight site alongside a busy road, privacy was a main consideration. The main screen is designed to have different densities at various heights to maximise privacy yet allowing views out. The second storey cantilevers over the outdoor terrace that faces the swimming pool. On the attic, the bathroom looks into the screen and a planter. The family room has a bookshelf made up of boxes stacked on top of each other.
