a_collective completed the design and development of Sunset Terrace House, a highly modern residence organized in an L-shaped plan in Singapore. Stylish and diverse, the bungalow-inspired crib exudes harmony and a large degree of openness. A modern blend of glass, wood and concrete results in an eye-catching street facade. All the rooms have views to a private garden at the rear corner of the site.
The original architecture approach for the Sunset Terrace House was explained as follows: “The combined living and dining room has the spatial experience of an open pavilion, with the elements of water on one side and greenery on the other, topped with a 3.6 meter high ceiling clad in solid Burmese teak timber. A floating feature staircase ties the two storeys together in a double height volume space, lined with 8 meter high off-form concrete walls”. The extensive use of wood ensures a feeling of warmth and softens the minimalist design scheme. Have a look!
