Raw & Refine House in Singapore

Raw & Refine House
Design: Aamer Architects
Raw & Refine House is located in front of a bus-stop at a junction of a minor road and a busy main road, this reconstruction of a small bungalow house is attracting attention from the community for its dynamic form and interesting use of materials.
The unique combination of raw off-form concrete and finely crafted solid teak screens from Bali veils and protects the house from its harsh urban environment without compromising on views, natural light and ventilation.
Solid boundary walls and landscaping mitigate the traffic noise from the main road while providing an intriguing visual delight to bus drivers, passengers and passersby.
The grand double volume living room, surrounded by a mezzanine study, library and corridors improves connection between occupants and gives the living space a dynamic interactive quality.
At ground level, the internal spaces of the house blends easily with the outdoor decks, gardens and swimming pool, which also provides passive cooling to the house.
The master bedroom located in the attic enjoys the comfort of deep overhangs, plenty of natural light and long distant views, not typical of such a dense urban site.
Client requested for a relaxed yet stylish home, accommodating their love for antique furniture, adapted into “something” contemporary and avant-garde.
Its location, just next to a bus stop at a busy road, meant the need to screen off the harsh urban environment. New-built would attract very substantial building setbacks, leaving little space to build, therefor the Reconstruction option was preferred.
Use of cooling green, sufficient cross ventilation, overhangs, high volume spaces, screens to shade of the harsh sun.
