Trio Stack Singapore Luxury Home
TRIO STACK (aka Project #10) by STUDIO WILLS + Architects, a Singapore-based architectural studio with a focus on residential architecture and interiors. This house project strived to contextualize an otherwise ubiquitous concrete box, a client’s requirement, for an odd-shaped plot where the building sits. The result is a tripartite composition of glass box, concrete band and pavilion-like steel box seemingly supported by a single brick pier.
TRIO STACK is a house sited on an elevated land and offers its occupants panoramic views of the estate and a distant view towards a natural reserve.
A severe building set-back requirement imposed across the entire length of the site, stipulated by local planning authorities, drastically limited the buildable footprint. To regain the areas lost to the set-back requirements, the building stretches itself over the entire length of the site giving the illusion of a large building; This distorts the edges of a pristine box-like Concrete Band contextualizing the otherwise ubiquitous Modernist Box for an odd-shaped plot resulting in a folded viewing aperture for a Study at one end and a Courtyard above an Outdoor Room at the other end.
The Concrete Band provides ample shading for a Glass Box below it from the harsh tropical sun and supports a Pavilion-like Steel Box with viewing terraces above it; a trio stack of Glass Box, Concrete Band and Steel Box. A single pier wrapped in black bricks, containing the vertical circulation, binds the trio stack as one and gives the illusion of a single point of support; a sense of lightness for a site congested with houses.
The house stands at a high point amidst a sea of houses, with distant views toward the vast greenery of the central catchment area in the Northwest and Southwest.
TRIO STACK is a distillation of a varied palette of materials into a tripartite composition of glass box, concrete band and steel box; A design that strived to contextualise the otherwise ubiquitous modernist concrete box on an odd-shaped plot.
Approaching the house is an encounter of a folded corner in the concrete band and a glimpse of the house entry.
Garden walls, in black bricks, lead onto a flight of gentle steps culminating at the Garden.
Arriving at the Garden is a view of an all-glass enclosure; A glass box, above which is the concrete band crowned by the pavilion-like steel box.
The Kitchen is a through space with views to the gardens on either ends.
A flight of stairs, wrapping around an off-form concrete wall, provides vertical connection between floors.
Louvers line the concrete band shielding the interior spaces from the harsh tropical sun and animating it with an ever-changing play of light and shadow.
At one end of the concrete band is a bedroom with a view of a courtyard.
Nested within the Courtyard is the Outdoor Room with a view of the sky framed by the concrete band.
The Outdoor Room, with a lone Caesalpinia tree, nestled at a corner of the house.
The glass box runs the length of the lawn with a canopy providing ample shading.

The house is formed by a glass box, concrete band and steel box, one stacked atop another in a tripartite composition. The concrete band stretches on both ends, breaking away from a regular rectangle into a trapezoidal plan to accentuate further the length of the site. The boxes are held in place by a brick pier pierced through them.
