Merryn Road 40a in Singapore by Aamer architects

We have a long relationship with the Client. The project we did for them in 2001 is next to this house where we divided a bungalow plot into two separate but identical houses which won the prestigious Singapore Institute of Architects’ Design Award in 2004. That was ten years ago and recently they acquired the plot next door with the intention of building another home so altogether they have three houses for themselves and their two grown up sons and their future families.

The intention, therefore, was to design the new home in sync with the previous two but different. The Owner specifically requested for a garden courtyard and koi pond. Hence, the swimming pool was designed on the roof with amazing views over the estate and surrounding houses which are mostly 2 storey bungalows.

Also, for this house, since the sons are already in their late teens and early twenties they wanted more space and privacy for them. So an interesting planning layout placed the boys’ rooms outdoors via a verandah terrace with their own accessibility from the ground right up to the rooftop entertainment room and pool garden terrace.

Much like the first two houses the materials are very natural like timber, marble and granites, blending well with the lush vertically stacked gardens.

In addition, similar to the first two houses, gardens and greenery are important to the Owners. So while the first two houses had trees growing through wooden balconies, this time we had creepers twinning up vertical timber trellises that extend about the rooftop swimming pool.

Even the bath rooms are open to gardens with lush flora and fauna like birds & butterflies making this a truly vertical garden villa.
