Connection with the exterior.
The openable glass walls give the flexibility to erase the indoor/outdoor space distinction, making both a tangible and intangible connection with the external environment.
Outdoor landscape lighting and sitting arrangement is thoughtfully implemented to make the most use of the outdoor space even during night time.
The pool serves as a beautiful backdrop to the patio and to the Big Room, coming into special relief as the daylight fades and the lit pool.
The lower block contains a feature double height living room known as the Big Room and also contains an internal rosewood-clad enclosed kitchen unit, above which sits a mezzanine family room.
Exquisite night lightening is employed at the external façade, to accent and enhance the façade finishes.
Personal spaces with delineation allows privacy for the residents that is separated from the social and entertainment spaces on the ground floor.
The design vocabulary is avant-garde, leaning heavily on a modern and minimal voice while retaining warmth through the selection of materials.
The ground floor is a couples study, discreetly located away from the Big Room with a surprising and beautiful backyard view and access through full length openable glazing.
All the bedrooms are faced with exposure onto a well lit wood screened window wall that gives views onto the pool patio.
Stone tiled flooring
Local stone is abundantly used on flooring and façade finishes as an easy to maintain and sustainable material solution for architectural design.
The building is made up of two main volumes roughly as two offset stacked blocks. Clever structural configuration allowed the designers to create varied height volumes within the space. The 2 simple boxes exceeds 8m aperture which reflected well in the maximum degree of its flexibility in terms of architectural details. Spaces are oriented with consideration of casual, formal and private programmes. Entertainment Centre and family lounge etc. are set in large voluminous spaces while bedrooms and study, kitchen etc. are dispersed in discreet and intimate locations yet all such planning and layout still offered outside views and natural light.
