Far Sight House is a complex residential project nested in Bukit Timah, Singapore. The inspiring semi-detached property designed by Wallflower Architecture + Design interacts with the surrounding site, yet brilliantly integrates into the urban street-scape of neighbourhood. Curves, cut outs and shapes of all kinds define the house, compiling its complex architectural character. “The house is expressed by coupling 2 forms; 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 children bedrooms side by side. The formal expression the house is also a response to the strict local interpretation of attic guidelines.”
Featuring 2 storeys, an attic and a roof terrace overlooking the valley, the house brings the inhabitants closer to nature. It features openings on 3 sides all covered with vertically drawn blinds, empowering residents to control the amount of sunlight, breeze and view. The ground floor accommodates the living room, kitchen, dining, a room for guests and last, but not least, a small playground with a pool for children. The second floor accommodates a family room and 3 bedrooms. Finally, the roof terrace is a casual place where the family gathers for reunions and parties. It’;s nice to see how the maze of greenery encircling the house was neatly integrated into the house plan, charging the residents with freshness.
