House De Garden

Clearwater Bay, Hong Kong

Perched up above Hong Kong's Clearwater Bay with sweeping panoramic views, this residential landscape design amplified its borrowed landscape connections through the introduction of a robust composition of native flower understory trees, shrubs, and ground covers juxtaposed with wooden decking and glass railings. The building is designed by davidclovers architects. House DE Garden is sited on a hillside above Clearwater Bay in Hong Kong. The design for the 4,000 SF town house's courtyard and rooftop renovation take advantage of this landscape context, using views to choreograph a nuanced experience between architecture and landscape. The renovation of the house combines two existing units into one, using staircases to blend, burrow and interlock spaces that, in turn, create unique views into and out of the landscape from multiple vantage points.
