Located on the North side of Singapore, the detached house was rebuilt from an existing semi detached house.
The house is designed with abundance of green spaces within a box of solid off-form concrete structure, shielding the owners from the noises of the street and stares of the passer-by. Internal spaces extends toward the surrounding gardens, blurring the indoor & outdoor boundaries for natural light and ventilation as well as the views of greenery. This open layout design truly reflects the owners’ warm hospitality for frequent hosting of guests. Smooth flow of indoor and outdoor spaces enable guests’ mingling while the quiet corners for much needed intimacy among the closest friends.
The heart of the house is the acoustically designed music performance cum jamming studio with displays of iconic guitars and other collection of instruments. It fulfils the client’s affinity for music and his long desire for a den.
Within this compact house, spaces are weaved within a crafted landscape that balances a more manicured lawns and lushly planted spaces within the elevated roof terraces.
