atrium house

architectural heritage blended with rustic materiality

Atrium House is a celebration of heritage and traditions. To design the residential development, via. reinterpreted the traditional Chinese “courtyard house” typology for modern day living.

“Not only is the development designed around a vernacular language, it is also imagined as an experiential journey.”

The same vernacular sensitivity is injected into the design of the marketing suite, defined by a timber framework against Chinese bricks. Custom-made cast concrete panels created with bamboo form work echo the materials in the residential development. An distinct theater space showcases two artworks in an environment highlighted by symmetry and harmony.

A series of brick-clad pavilions designed to house different functions and activities were designed for the development. Infused with a range of hues to reflect the different hours of the day, the pavilions are surrounded by a peaceful central pool, enabling inward-looking views.

Greenery also becomes an integral element in the scheme. Planted with an abundance of trees and plants, residents can enjoy luscious green views from their apartments above.
