    Forever_House_(2)

    1) Project name: Forever House
    Project type: Detached house
    Firm: Wallflower Architecture + Design

    About the project:

    A modern courtyard house sculpted by two distinct and bold geometric travertine-clad cantilevered volumes, this was conceptualised as the client’s dream house that would be their definitive family home. Included in the wishlist was a six-car garage and 25m-long pool.

    2) Project name: Courtyard House
    Project type: 3-storey corner terrace house with open roof terrace
    Firm: Ming Architect

    About the project: This house, having been rebuilt on the existing plot, now accommodates multi-generational living and maximises both common and private spaces for the expanding family. Previously, the original house was not built to its optimal capacity, and faced the issues of cramped living spaces, lack of daylight and natural ventilation and low ceiling heights.

    3) Project name: 15 SAS
    Project type: Terrace house
    Firm: The Carpenter’s Workshop

    About the project: The original single storey inter-terrace house with a low ceiling and limited natural lighting was transformed into a spacious and naturally lit two-storey house. An indoor garden was also created, which brought in both greenery, daylight and ventilation into the house.

    4) Project name: Vertical Node
    Project type: 3-storey semi-detached house
    Firm: Design Rebirth

    About the project: An elegant living interior in which to appreciate art was created using different materials, textures, colours and finishes. The client’s paintings and sculptures were carefully curated and positioned around the house to excite guests at different points, taking into account suitable viewing distances.

     

    Lookbox_(5)

    5) Project name: L House
    Project type: Semi-detached house
    Firm: Right Angle Studio

    About the project: The house was to have a clean, modern and understated luxe feel, and this was achieved by using a consistent palette of natural materials such as wood, stone, metal and concrete. Design features include a series of full-height wooden panels that accentuate the ceiling height, a built-in marble dining table that extends from the kitchen island and bridges the living, dining and dry kitchen zones, bronze-tone mirrors and concealed door panels.

     

    See_Through_House_(3)

    6) Project name: See Through House
    Project type: Good Class Bungalow
    Firm: Wallflower Architecture + Design

    About the project:  The design of this house, geometrically simple and understated in expression, is a modern adaption of a tropical courtyard house. It’s also a juxtaposition from the conserved colonial house that sits directly across it.
