View from the living room towards front yard. The high door become focalisation for this area and offer a great visual framing to exterior. Another definition of visual manipulation to make your house look higher and spacious. pic.twitter.com/M7aWtbq4AB

At the facade, the red “monster” door is a dominant feature. The door is made of thin metal slats, like a screen, and within that door is another, made of coloured plastic panels. This inner door can be opened for additional light or ventilation. pic.twitter.com/iGnpKwIKDh

The ground floor being designed with open and linear concept; from living room towards dining area, courtyard and kitchen area. With a bare concrete finishing on the floor, it enhance the minimalist ambiance. pic.twitter.com/o0kNLgobjI

The major element of design is the courtyard that located in between dining and kicthen area. With an opening on the ceiling, it provides more natural light to the area. With a single tree planted; it contrasts with the surrounding and enhance the aesthetic value. pic.twitter.com/G3h5ZdKTGt

The solid island in the kitchen become the statement and have it's own character. Made of same material with the floor, it harmonised the area with additional lighting underneath. Wood kicthen cabinet become a perfect companion for the whole scenery. pic.twitter.com/7rsF3Zyqu4

Move towards the upper floor, the feature wall with hanging shelves with authentic sia tiffin collection will caught your attention. The wood panel on the ceiling giving an added value to the area. pic.twitter.com/XDai7ck8Mz

The horizontal lines being repeated on the wall and ceiling. The upper floor consists family area and master bedroom with many hidden storage. Thus, it makes the space clean and tidy. pic.twitter.com/GMf5pJ4pLm

The back view of the house is untypically constructed with vertical concrete columns. It gives another perspective on how common terrace house can look better from the back lane. Nice right? pic.twitter.com/kutbTAzDuw

Another surprise! Green roof being integrated and linked with the upper floor. It become a functional space for the owner to hanging out with family while enjoying the open sky. The gravel on another sides embossed the Japanese garden characteristics. pic.twitter.com/9G3rGq8CYd

@FLjasmy These are nice. I am unclear of the regulations on converting a single storey house to a double. Mind setting up a thread for that?

@ashes_8_zero @FLjasmy I' ve been to an architecture talk where the architect showed his design of transforming a single storey house to 3 storeys, which is located somewhere in KL.
Ugaga @nucacola01
@ashes_8_zero @FLjasmy Based on what the architect said, the authority (in KL/Sgor) area but i'm not sure which authority) is actually encouraged the residents to increase the floor area as KL is currently facing a problem to develop new housing. (Guess it will give them more money for 'cukai pintu'?)

@01kingkong10 @FLjasmy That is good to know. If you can, would you mind explaining some of the procedures?
