Goodwood Residence in Bukit Timah Road, Singapore by WOHA

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

Article source: WOHA

Set amidst an enclave of black and white houses just off the prime Orchard/Scotts Road area, and against a verdant 20-hectare backdrop of greenery, the 210-unit Goodwood Residence is conceived on a macro scale as a breathing space – a rarity in high density urbanised Singapore – and an extension of the Goodwood Hill tree conservation area that it shares a boundary of 150m with. Articulated as two 12-storey L-shaped blocks, the 2.5-hectare development dialogues with the hill that it embraces and merges with in a language of openness and continuity made expressive by varying degrees of scale and privacy.

Lush greenery along site perimeter dissolves the building boundary and affords a green introduction to the development., Image Courtesy © Patrick Bingham-Hall

Merryn Road 40a in Singapore by Aamer architects

Article source: 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.

Centennial Tree House in East Coast, Singapore by Wallflower Architecture + Design

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Article source: Wallflower Architecture + Design

The owner wanted external blank walls. Then talk continued to fixed screens. Centre courtyard for light and air. These summed up for them, the tangible facets of an ideal home, a protective enclosure of solitude.

Introversion has a negative connotation in a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else. But what is withdrawal to some is energizing for those who thrive on self-reflection and contemplation; life is found within.

Sunny Side House in Serangoon, Singapore by Wallflower Architecture + Design

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Article source: Wallflower Architecture + Design 

The site would not appeal to most local homebuyer as it immediately ticks several negative boxes for what are deemed liabilities in a residential semi-detached plot. It is long and narrow, with both the long side and front facing the western afternoon sun. The plot lies a metre below a public road that bounds the front and the ‘sunny’ side. In the local context, there would be environmental, layout and cultural issues to overcome.
