The goal of this tropical house design and landscaping concept proposal is to create a balance proportion and unification between the existing and new buildings by creating a new axis between main building and the new pavilion in a form of small courtyard and cascading ascending formal entry to both buildings. Both main building and new pavilion has a higher platform than carport / garage level (by 2.4 meter), naturally creating a more private ambiance and view blockage from street level. An additional pedestrian ramp is also given on the other side of the main building, next to the open hard-scape plaza, towards the main building.
This design will keep the existing building as it is, but with some alteration on the front patio (the form is changed to make it more connected to the new landscape and formal entry axis, and creating a vertical green wall at its frontage perimeter (please see perspectives for better visualization). In addition to that, the outer side of existing building’s perimeter wall will be repainted with light grey color that matches with new building’s natural color scheme.
Roof finishing, door and window frames of the new pavilion will follow the existing building.
Carport space is simply designed with natural materials as part of hardscape of the site, formed by natural gabion walls on its left and right sides, and covered with a 300mm-thick green roof concrete deck (the concrete deck could be covered with white pebble stones or green grass, or combination of both), which also functions as rainwater harvesting deck.
Bamboo, green paddy-like grass, local bushes and flowers, andesite stone, pebble wash stones for the open plaza, gabion walls (made from rocks), as well as perforated paving blocks with grass inserts for driveway are very recommended for the landscape area.
