At minimum, a home should have four walls around it and a roof overhead, but 'Room Without Roof' by HYLA Architects proves that no maxim is without its exceptions. The creative home in Singapore is structured much like a traditional gabled domicile, but it hides an attractive design quirk on its interior.

Entering Room Without Roof, one might not think the home was particularly interesting. However, once one moves to the center of the home, its unique structuration becomes clear. The center of the home contains an open courtyard, completely free of any roof and holding a pool. This al fresco interior provides the homeowners with a calming respite in the middle of an otherwise dense neighborhood.
