Designed for modern living for an enlightened developer, this corner terrace is a delightful & modest addition to the Siglap estate at eastern part of Singapore. The distinctive & elegant façade features granite stone cladding complemented with warm timber ceilings & intricate sun-shading louver screens. Altogether, they form a cohesive, simple & sophisticated look, a testament to our meticulous passion for craftsmanship & detailing.
In the design ethos of Dieter Rams “Less but Better”, the house at Burnfoot Terrace is minimalist in design language & pragmatic in structure. This reconstruction project gives a timely update to both the look and spatial layout to meet the needs of a young and growing family, whilst catering much room for future expansion.
The brief for this three-storey semi-detached was to address the busy Upper Changi Road facing the front of the house while providing a place of refuge away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Designed as a pair of semi-detached houses to meet the growing spatial needs of families, the layout seeks to create tranquil retreat while allowing homeowners to enjoy the energising effects of surrounding views.
This pair of three-storey semi-detached houses with a basement is located at Jalan Angin Laut, eastern part of Singapore. The natural sloping terrain allows for a partially submerged basement to be formed. The design balances transparency & privacy; openness & enclosure as it seeks to filter noise from nearby busy road, MRT viaducts & offers protection from the climate.
Inspired by the surrounding nature and calmness that it evokes, this pair of elevated semi-detached at 1 Thomson Walk is an exploration of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that encapsulates embracing the flaws and imperfections. Wabi-sabi conveys the idea of aesthetic appreciation of ageing, flaws, and the beauty of the effects of time and imperfections.
