Green Wall House
This modern Singapore property was a response to a request for an abode that would be balanced with nature, enhanced with sustainable strategies and aesthetic in appeal. ADX Architects worked in close collaboration with their Clients to bring sufficient light and ventilation into the living spaces, with a vertical green wall contributing to a distinct expression for the house.

Nestled at the heart of Singapore’s first conservation area, 67EM-House is a Straits Chinese terraced house built in the 1920s. In the tradition of such homes, the front door is usually kept open for ventilation, but privacy is ensured with a full-height screen and a sculpture placed as a visual focal point just inside the doorway.

Free Fun Feline
In this light-washed wall-less Free Fun Feline apartment, ASOLIDPLAN used contours in a terraneous landscape to sculpt and define spaces – a raised lounge, a sunken bedroom, an elevated study – making movement free-flowing, fun, and feline-friendly. For their first home together, a young couple wanted big spaces with abundant daylight for their pets to roam about.

105DW-House Singapore Residence

Built on a level but long plot of land in the East Coast area of Singapore, 105DW-House presented a few challenges to the architecture team. A southwest-facing frontage meant that any windows on its facade would require some form of brise soleil to deflect the harsh afternoon sunlight.

Envelope House

Envelope House
The Envelope House brief was for a multi-generational home for three households – the client’s young family with a child, their parents, and their aunt – with private spaces, common spaces and generous greenery. ASOLIDPLAN formulated the parti as a landscape double skin enveloping three levels of habitable spaces and punctured by a vertical landscaped courtyard.

An Ample House
Seldom does one come across an owner who elects to have what is enough, as opposed to ‘maximising’ to the available envelope. The reconstruction of this semi-detached house is designed to address three requirements: privacy, adequacy, and permanence.

Martin Modern, Singapore Apartments
In today’s evolving global residential landscape, the dire issues of attention to sustainability, access to open green space where social-distancing is possible, and a need for a more eco-conscious living are the newest trends that influence where and how we live. Now more than ever, the world needs to cut back on carbon emissions, waste and the creation of unnatural materials that damage the environment.

Kandis Residence, northern Singapore

Kandis Residences
Set within an idyllic location, this contemporary residence contains 130 condominium units housed within four residential blocks – one three-storey block, along with three seven-storey blocks. The project design was predicated on the concept of “homes in the woods”, envisioned as a green, immaculately landscaped sanctuary that accommodates the modern urban lifestyle.

Perfect Feng Shui

Perfect Feng Shui House
According to the clients, the site for this house epitomises the Perfect Feng Shui. Like other houses designed by Aamer, this house was also designed to capitalise on what the site offers while maximising the landscaping and other means of passive cooling to create experientially delightful spaces in the tropics.

San House

San House
In Chinese calligraphy the word san which means 3, is written in three strokes over three levels. It perfectly describes this three storey terrace house in an urban area just off the central shopping district of Orchard Road in Singapore.

Boomerang House

Boomerang House
The site of Boomerang House is narrow and long, with a small frontage to the waterfront. To maximise the view to the waterfront, Aamer designed the house to curve like a boomerang so that all the bedrooms could have views of the waterfront.

Railway House

Railway House
As a typology, the semi-detached house is often perceived as a Siamese twin, reluctantly conjoined to its symmetrical other via a single party wall. The desire to challenge such a notion drives the parti of the Railway House, a single-family house. By separating and pulling the main building block away from the party wall, a semi-detached house breaks free.

Fluidity on the Hill
Fluidity on the Hill sits on a steep odd-shaped hill with existing large trees, this seven bedrooms multi-generational house meanders fluidly upwards over five floors diverting around the very mature trees. Broken down into parts, the massing reduces as it goes higher. The house is intended to stand out whilst not overpowering the context.

This house sits on high ground, and the rear of the site has wonderful views overlooking the greener and more affluent residential addresses in Singapore.

Wind Vault House
As the brief was substantial, the overall form of the house needed to be pushed to the envelope limits. Naturally, there are also other considerations; the context and proximity of neighbouring homes, the daily sun path and the prevailing winds. Conceptually, the house is a raised reinforced concrete tube whose open ends are oriented in a general north-south direction.

This is a tale of two houses – similar looking, yet independent and coming together to form a coherent whole. The two blocks sit on a sprawling piece of land, belonging respectively to the retired parents and one of their children.

Nest House Singapore
Another delightfully sensitive and articulate design from this world-famous Singapore architects studio. This house is part of a family compound, and expresses the owner’s close relationship with her grandfather who has his own house within the compound. The design reflects the close bond between the grandfather and granddaughter by orientating the main spaces towards his house and gardens.

This is one of three ‘good class bungalow’ plots carved from a larger plot developed by the Keck Seng Group. The house sits on a slight incline and overlooks a pool in the front yard, following the feng shui belief of balancing the “mountain” and “water” elements.

Flanked by huge luscious tropical hardwood trees on either sides and diagonally facing the Singapore Botanical gardens sits one of the most breathtaking and desirable sites in Singapore. The intention of this design is to mimic the landscape, allow the architecture to be part of it, thereby accentuating the locale and its prominence.

Botannia Singapore
Singapore—an island of just 710 square kilometres with a growing 4.9 million population— projects herself as city in a garden, no mean feat, since most Singaporeans live in high-rise public housing while others live in low-rise enclaves or condominiums where ratios of total floor area to site area range from 1.4 to 2.8.
