MKPL Architects | Sentosa Cove
The house expresses modernity and antiquaty at the same time.
There is a primordial instinct in the form and materiality of the house. It is unmistakably a house typology. The use of off-form concrete with wood patterned form liner further convey a sense of solidness and acientness.
Yet we want to express a lightness and openness at the same time. The layer of timber slats that encapsulates the upper portion of the house creates a delightful seense of lightness, just like a veil or blind, signaling privacy. The large expanse of glass on the first storey, screened by the garden, and the generous cantilevered balconies, are designed to provide vantage points to view corridors and als recede the glass facade well away from the sun.
