Family Compound For Two Brothers In China [Video]

Flowing Garden House is a large, luxury family compound, built for two entrepreneur brothers in the city of Zhangzhou, China. Created by architectural firm More Than Arch Studio, the 1700 square metre home stands apart from the majority of modern houses in China. This home is composed of three parts, which include a private unit for each brother’s family and a communal space for family gatherings, fitness and more. The social spaces centre around a peaceful courtyard design with a huge pond and majestic trees.

Red Laterite Stone Shines In This Beautiful South Indian Home [Video]

Red Laterite Stone Shines In This Beautiful South Indian Home [Video]

Replacing one existing house and a warehouse, this large family home was made to complement the tropical lifestyle of Kerala, India. Created by The Design Room, the architecture sympathetically retains the native trees of the 600 square metre site, and encloses several of them within a central courtyard design. The built spaces branch out from this open-air heart of the home, which achieves a cosy connection. The open plan layout was guided by the humid climatic conditions of the region. The benefits of cross ventilation, passive cooling, and natural lighting satisfied the vision for an energy-efficient home. Outside, the vegetation contrasts vibrantly with the visual heat of iron-rich red laterite stone.

A slow-paced, nature-kissed serenity trickles through this modern Indian house design, which was created by the talent at architectural firm Studio Era. From the outside, the modern home is trimmed with mature palm trees and established plant beds, which frame the fresh white render of asymmetrical architecture. Inside the house, a bold staircase design dominates a wide entryway that leads into open and airy living rooms. The simple but stylish living spaces pause at light-filled courtyards that provide a blissful through-breeze. One sun-dappled courtyard features a beautiful koi fish pond that supplies animated colour, life and restful entertainment to family members of every age.

Vietnamese Villas That Focus On Airy Courtyards & Lush Green Borders

Vietnamese Villas That Focus On Airy Courtyards & Lush Green Borders

Nature has revitalising effects that are great for mental health but often we’re pretty removed from it in our modern homes. In built-up areas, there can be restricted space for gardens, or they may not offer enough privacy from the next-door neighbours. Courtyards offer an opportunity to put this right. Surrounded by the home itself, there are no prying eyes from next door, and the central location of the green space encourages footfall through it when moving from one interior room to the next. Designed by Kaizen Archi, these two bright and modern Vietnamese villa concepts are centred around their airy courtyards that provide blissfully cooling ventilation and a serene 360º garden view.
