Cosy & Modern House in Singapore | Architecture

This architectural project was about creating a world that would be this family house. In the middle of the house is a court covered by a big skylight where the stairs go around connecting the rooms and spaces spread over 3 levels. These spaces are differentiated by degrees of openness and privacy through changes in levels, enclosures and relations to gardens. The living space is 3 steps up and overlooks a raised wild garden that falls gently towards it. The garden walls enclose and extend the dining space and the house feels most open here while you eat and talk. A separate space sits on the attic rooftop, a play room that is bounded by a garden and a lap pool and the sky. The depth of the lap pool is 1200mm. It is located 400mm from the attic level forming a long continous seat to the outdoor area, and bumps into the level below creating a more intimate ceiling height to the small bedrooms below it. From the bedrooms, a small window slides into the walls or a mirrored panel pivot open up into the staircourt.
