Good Class Bungalow @ 21 Jervois Hill
The bungalow project was an Honorary Mentioned Design Awards at the 10th SIA Architectural Design Awards 2010. The firm’s philosophy in being responsible in terms of site context is best encapsulated well here. The planar configuration of the walls, roofs and window screens forms a harmonious language with the natural environment surrounding it. It sits in perfectly amongst the trees and the use of timber and masonry throughout the house forms a close link with nature. The plans for the house were designed to maximise the view of the natural scenery allowing ample of ventilation and light flow.
The two storey bungalow in District 9 in Singapore was conceived of as a series of pavilions set within a forested garden. The building nestles confidently on a cascading terrain, surrounded by huge mature trees within the green reserves. Through the extensive use of timber and natural stones, the house is warm, tropical and inviting in expression.
