Far Sight Home by Wallflower Architecture + Design and style:
“This residence sits on high ground, and the rear of the internet site has fantastic views overlooking the greener and more affluent residential addresses in Singapore. Our client’s short was to style a home of 2 stories, with an attic, and importantly a roof terrace dealing with the rear and overlooking the valley.
The house is expressed by coupling 2 types a tall and narrow single-room width block housing the master bedroom, study and attic-living and the wider block at the rear accommodating 2 youngsters bedrooms side by side. The formal expression the home is also a response to the stringent regional interpretation of attic guidelines.
The residence deploys a multi-layered façade of operable glass doors and windows, a veil of operable vertical timber louvers punctuated by clear glass bay windows, horizontal aluminium sunscreen and vertically drawn blinds. Diverse expressions of materials and composition but primarily enabling the owners to control the quantity of sun screening, breeze, and see. At times it is not just what the owners want to see, but what the neighbours can see of them.
Semi-detached homes tend to suffer from gloom in the deep central components of the house. Not like detached houses, semi-detached residences have only openings on 3 sides. Careful arranging and realize the nature of daylight shifting all through the day has resulted in daylight and breezes refreshing every corner of the residence. Light and air wells are even more slotted in-amongst the celebration wall and the residence. All 3 ranges are linked via a staircase finished in limestone.
The layout on the initial storey is easy, comprising the living area, dining, kitchen, guest area and a small children’s pool. On the second storey, a loved ones space and 3 bedrooms for our consumer and their 2 children. The master bedroom has a minor examine loft above and that is additional linked to the attic residing and roof terrace. Irrespective of level or area, the informal light that bathes the internal spaces of the home leaves no spot undesirable but it is the informal attic terrace with its ‘million-dollar’ views that is the literal ‘light-house’ It is this kind of a hit that the owners host most of their parties and family members gatherings on the third degree, to see and be witnessed from all close to.”
