Wallflower Architecture + Design - Water-Cooled House in Singapore Print E-mail
Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:25

Water-cooled-12

Hidden away from the road, the site is surrounded by a verdant screen of mature trees from adjacent properties with breezes blowing transversely across the whole area. The owner had wanted a contemporary home that prioritized environmental coolness as a consistent attribute and to be able to enjoy the luscious tropical surroundings.

The concept developed for the home inverted planning and hierarchical norms common in local residential planning. To fully appreciate the mature and variegated natural environment and stretch the potential for visual depth and distance, the main living room and study were located in a pavilion on the second storey. It was designed with minimal enclosing and supporting structure so as to maximize the elevated vistas. To unconsciously guide visitors to the living pavilion above, a minimal spiral staircase touches down within the entrance foyer.

Tuesday, 12 October 2010 07:07

Set within a suburban setting, the project addresses the issue of distance between residential dwellings and commercial spaces. While the complex is mostly composed of residential units, small commercial functions – live/work lofts and ground floor retail spaces – are injected into the project, contributing a shared energy to the public spaces.

Base Architecture - 'She Oak' House by the Sea in Casuarina Beach, Kingscliff, NSW, Australia Print E-mail
Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:53

She-Oak-04Aptly named by its Architect as the "beach shack", this 3875.01 ft2 black box sits within the Casuarina estate on a beach front lot.

The original brief was to develop a house that was informal, casual, comfortable and welcoming and importantly have a space for the client’s quiver of long boards. Surrounded by an eclectic array of houses it became apparent early in the design stage the importance of the surrounds, the environment and the conditions that the house would be subjected to such as wind, salt and sun.

The use of galvanised steel and stained ecoply promotes rawness to the skin that will age gracefully rather than deteriorate like most paint type finishes, whilst on the inside the material palette is refined yet hard wearing in the form of polished concrete.


From the initial sighting of the house the viewer can make a casual journey to the double height entry with grass underfoot and natural landscape.
