A contemporary interpretation of a courtyard house where views to multi-level sky terraces are curated within the circulation. A sculptural Olive Tree that is placed in the central sky terrace symbolizes ‘peace and friendship’. Very apt, especially for this bungalow, designed for a close knit multi-generational family.
Natural day-lighting, cross ventilation together with the punctuated greenness at each level were key driving factors in creating the ambience of a home resort.
Delight and innovation are interplayed in Gallery House, both in the pursuit of a sustainable equatorial intermediate terrace house architecture.
Delight is a driver for the main atrium’s split floor system, which serves as a communal zone rising above the art gallery. However, a spin off from this spatial arrangement is the creation of a light shaft for natural lighting, which promotes passive cooling using concepts of heat stack effect and cross ventilation. This concept of leveraging upon the environment even applies to rainwater management, as the system brings in runoff from the roof via an interior water feature that spans the length of the development, this aiding to some extent in passive cooling as well through introduction of the cooler rainwater into the interior spaces.
Finally, as a truly Singaporean development, Gallery House expresses the materiality of off-form concrete as well as timber (from locally sourced discarded raintrees), and pairs them with the buildability of steel beams, columns and floors. Showing not only a proposal, but an example of a Singaporean craft.
Book house at Ford Avenue is a private library annexe (within a Good Class Bungalow Precinct). It houses rare book collections of a highly successful digital innovation entrepreneur, showcasing his thousands of rare novels and publications in a double volume space. The house is designed sensitively to respond to its environment, maximising daylight whilst ensuring protection from UV degradation. These industrial interiors utilise exposed oﬀ-form concrete wall and graphite grey steel structure, lined with warm wood book shelving. The juxtaposition of muted and warm material look perfectly thrown together. Equipped with a modern home workshop at level one that looks out into an agricultural landscape garden, Book house is the ultimate hobby-space / man-cave.
