Multi-Generation Apartment House Changing With The Family


Elegantly imposing, this contemporary home employs the traditional Asian concept of multi-generation living in a modern residential structure. Singapore-based studio Formwerkz Architects imagined a house that would care for different needs of each inhabitant and unify the family in a set of common spaces. The three story Apartment House project in Singapore is not only a family fortress, but also an adaptable dwelling that can easily be expanded or changed, according to each generation’s needs.

Even the scale of this residential unit hits towards its function – a residence prepared to construct a new lifestyle for the many members of the family: “The house is organized in two linear volumes, split by a common pool in the middle but connected on the upper floors by the family space. The 2-storey volume houses the parents’ master en-suite on the upper floors, floating above the main living space. A lawn garden sits above on the roof. The 3–story block primarily, apart from the dining and kitchen on the ground floor, are tailored to the lifestyles of the 3 siblings yielding to their individual narratives.“These spaces have a remarkable adaptability feature both on the exterior architecture – the two volumes can easily be transformed into 2 bungalows – as well as on the inside, where service spaces are arranged to one side.
