Of all the houses that I’ve written about in the recent past, this is the first home that I love every single element incorporated into the design work for this home. Created by Wallflower Architecture + Design, this home located in Serangoon, Singapore which is about only 7km away from the bustle of Orchard Road.
The entire front facade is set with the raw and unfinished look of concrete, and nicely contrasted with the greenery of plants. The house is laid out in two parallel blocks complete with an enclosed glass bridge connecting the two. This design element allows light to reach up to the basement area even while minimizing the harshness of the afternoon sun.
The entry of the home, the living spaces such as the living room and even the bedrooms are arranged in a longitudinal lay-out to take advantage of the space created in between the two blocks of the home. This allows for greater ventilation and even allows in sunlight into these spaces in comparison with rooms laid-out more traditionally in the average bungalow.
To maximise the space available this magnificent home has been built up to a height of 3 floors with an additional basement incorporated into the homes design. The gardens, swimming pool and koi pond all add a softer tone to the hardness of the travertine look. A really nice touch is the roof top garden and while I feel the garden could have been a little better thought out, the greenery it currently adds to the home makes it a space that is functional and still adds to the aesthetics of this home when viewed from a higher building.
To be able to own a home such as this would definitely be a dream come true. And for the owners of this home, the dream has become reality. For more images of this home, just scroll below.
