House at Hua Guan Avenue
Singapore, Singapore
This family house is designed as a pleasure pavilion in a garden. Its walled enclosure, long linear pool and rhythmic architectural elements are all devices used in Islamic gardens from Spain to Indonesia, but given a contemporary twist. The party wall of the semi-detached house wraps over to define a circulation gallery along which the various rooms are aligned. The wrapping, folding language is continued throughout the project, from the boundary walls to the sliding timber screens of the bedroom balconies and the custom-designed furniture. A concrete frame structure is combined with stone cladding and timber louvres.
