Italian Inspiration: Travertine Dream House in Singapore

Travertine Dream House was envisioned by Wallflower Architecture + Design and is located in Serangoon, Singapore. The brief of the owner (Inspired by the Italian travertine city landscapes), required the use of greenery, maximization of functional areas and travertine exterior finishes. Here is more from the development team regarding the design solution that was applied: “The house is organized as two parallel blocks connected by a glass enclosed bridge. The separation between the two blocks allows daylight to stream down to basement spaces. Thick travertine walls and large overhangs are placed on the western side to limit heat gain from the harsh afternoon sun. The entry, living spaces and bedrooms are arranged longitudinally to take advantage of natural cross ventilation and daylight. In order to intensify land use without ending up with an imposing structure, the four storied house has one level sunk into the ground and the other three set away from the access road“. With gardens and water bodies spread throughout the house, the interiors are welcoming and inspiring. Have a look!
