Faber Avenue in Singapore by hyla architects

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source: hyla architects

Erection of 2-Storey Semi-Detached Dwelling House with Attic

The front has a westerly orientation and thus the house is turned around to face the back which is more private.  A series of sleek vertical aluminium screens protect the house from the sun whilst allowing the wind to pass through.  The entrance hall has a reflecting pool and a high volume.  The stairs travel up the 3 levels alongside a granite clad wall to reach the master bedroom and roof terrace at the top and rear.  The master bathroom has a free standing vanity, bath and wc with a skylight and light chandelier on top.

Article source: SPARK Architects

In the tradition of conceptual and visionary architecture proposals, SPARK Architects reveal their design for a floating hawker centre – the Solar Orchid. This concept for self-contained, solar-powered, floating hawker pods suggests a way to mend the now distant relationship between Singapore and its waterscapes, while celebrating and reinvigorating a favoured local pass time.

Jalan Mat Jambol in Singapore by Zarch Collaboratives

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

Article source: Zarch Collaboratives

Approaching the house from the street level, one notices a raw, chamfered concrete fascia. The windowless façade reveals the interior of the house, almost as if the house is still in a state of construction, primitive in its language of expression. The raw elevation provides glimpses of a spiral staircase drum, with a seemingly makeshift timber box protruding from the articulated structural elements, augmenting the sense of theatrics in a neighbourhood of quiet terrace houses.

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

Friday, February 7th, 2014

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.
