The façade of the house is truly unique with a smart brick wall seamlessly blending in with its more contemporary surroundings. The thick brick wall was as much a functional addition as it was aesthetic with its presence keeping out harsh afternoon sunlight and excessive heat during those really hot summer days.
Another facet of the design that lets the classy cabin blend in with the surrounding pine forest is the irrigated green roof. With a dark cedar exterior and a contrasting rough-sewn fir interior this stunning vacation home paints a picture of fascinating contrasts.
The second and third levels of the residence contain smart office spaces that can accommodate a small staff easily along with restrooms. With a simple color scheme that is centered around white and ample storage space the two levels also offer wonderful views of the canal and greenery outside.
Three bedrooms a home library and an open workspace are housed on the mezzanine level with the attic space being converted into the master suite that also contains a study room. With wonderful views of the cityscape and refreshing outdoor decks and gardens all around this remarkable residence in Singapore surely leaves a lasting impression on you.
One of the biggest challenges during the design of this multi-level house was both its unique orientation and the flood of sunlight that entered the house because of the giant glass wall that connects the living area with the pool outside.
The lower-level living area of the house seems a lot larger than it really is as it flows into the outdoor social zone that is surrounded by a blanket of greenery. On the inside one sees a neutral color scheme with skylights and large windows bringing in an abundance of sunlight adding to the cheerful ambiance. A sculptural staircase that leads to the top floor is surrounded by a wall of books with the vertical space on offer being utilized completely.
One of the most interesting features of this house is the rumpus room that currently acts as the playroom. Connected with the deck living area barbecue zone and the yard adults in the house can keep an eye on the little ones spending their time here from pretty much everywhere!
