When two homes are harmoniously fused by way of layered green roofs, you know an architectural masterpiece has just been developed. The Wall House in Singapore by Farm Architects is such a place, a modern day dream home embracing Chinese tradition.
With virtually 12,000 square feet, this two-story green retreat sits in an urban setting, however feels none of the hectic pace. Conversely, this zen-like ambiance soothes with lush greenery blanketed upon two separate granite-clad boxes unified through a single generous central courtyard entrance. Delicate trees are planted from within the foundation, sprouting up through 1 of several freeform oculi. These treetops attain beyond the second level of the residence sprouting by way of a cut-out in the shallow rooftop pool. Different other water features stream all through the meticulously landscaped compound, wrapping the structures in an practically moat-like manner.
With wood, granite and glazing as the predominant supplies across the two blocks, a variety of geometric gridwork is also presented and just exceptional. The dimensional stone wall also adds wealthy texture to these courtyard locations. Precise lighting style enhances these contemporary components, attributing an artistic nature to the residence both inside and out.
The flowing layout is conducive to an outdoor-indoor life-style, with totally-glazed retractable walls also creating an energy-effective light source. This house is furnished minimalistically in an earthy palette of brown, beige, white and grey, but the actual beauty lies inside the unparalleled architecture.
Interestingly, this property possesses an array of living locations and lounges, excellent for family members living and entertaining. In the initial developing, there is actually a basement level which attributes a wine cellar, whilst the ground floor spans a living area, library, dining area, kitchen, master suite and guest space.
