The project won a silver award for “Environmental Design” in the “Home and Residential Spaces” category.
According to VNT Architects, because of the site’s proximity to a park, the house is constructed to be an extension of its environment and have integrated luxuriant landscape into the interior.
“An atrium was carved out of the three-storey building, accentuating its high ceiling, which provides enough sunlight and space for trees to grow indoors. The walls are covered with ivy.”
“The green facade blocks direct sunlight and moderates the temperature indoors.”
The DFA Awards, organised by the Hong Kong Design Centre, celebrates design excellence with Asian perspectives. Design projects are judged on four criteria – overall excellence, use of technology, impact in Asia as well as commercial and societal success.
