In any tropical environs it can be a challenge to create a space that allows for plenty of airflow, celebrating the natural surroundings while still maintaining a comfortable temperature for inhabitants. With temperatures in Singapore frequently running towards 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37 Celsius), this is certainly a concern here. To address this, in addition to the open central courtyard, there is plenty of open air space in the home, including an outdoor bath. Large windows slide open and the living room opens out onto a covered verandah. There are plenty of opportunities here to enjoy the outdoors without overheating.
