Award Entry

New urban home retains natural elements within its futuristic shell, blending with verdant surroundings 

The most attention-grabbing detail of this project is the dark grey metal cladding used generously on the external facade, which oozes with modern, edgy vibes. Its sharp and well-defined sides create a chic and unique face to this otherwise conventional family home. To complement the edgy nature of the exterior, plenty of natural materials such as timber-teak and teak strips were used liberally throughout the entirety of the house, displayed tastefully on the walls, flooring or furniture.

A colossal, spiral staircase greets one in the immaculate interior, commanding a strong visual axis. This forms the focal point of the entire house. Also, in line with an eco-friendly theme, a skylight was constructed in the basement, which enables natural sunlight to stream in and illuminate the house’s interior space while also keeping it warm on the occasional cold day. The client requested for as much greenery as possible, therefore, much of the landscape was left untouched, except for the inclusion of a big lap pool with a sun deck formed from the very same timber slabs that perpetuate throughout the house. And, for the benefit of guests or even the homeowner’s own relaxation time, a media and entertainment room can also be found at the basement.
