Being fans of concrete architecture, the homeowners wanted a tropical contemporary home made from reinforced concrete. The facade of this terrace house features a resilient and raw-looking concrete finish that is nicely complemented by lush foliage. This interplay of cool and warm accents is not just represented on the outside but translated within the interiors as well.
Besides the dry and wet kitchens, the ground level of this three-storey home also hosts the living area. This light-filled space welcomes the family to lounge together with its contemporary design language. The main wall is lined with cultured stone to evoke the look of a white brick wall. The designers also built a TV console from laminates, shaping it into a wavy form to help counter the starkness of the brick wall.
Adding spice to this black-and-white dry kitchen is the orange tempered glass backsplash. Project Director Norman Lim and Senior Designer YY Lim also added the same accent colour to the dining chairs. An island counter with a black galaxy granite worktop complements the open-concept flow of the shared communal zones.
