Singapore is one of the most extraordinary cities in the world when it comes to residential architecture. It shelters dream homes of an unimaginable beauty, all flooded by vegetation, luxury and good taste. Guz Architects are one of the world renowned architecture firms which are activating in Singapore and their design did not pass unseen, everywhere in the world they are known for the Fish House , Willow House and many many others, most of them already featured on Homesthetics, today the Rattan House joins the pack.
It is extraordinary because it simply breathes. The home is constituted out of several open air rooms and their own gardens which are both protecting the inhabitants and enhancing their privacy while elevating the air quality and state of well being.
The modern mansion has been envisioned as a contemporary interpretation of the simple and traditional courtyard house which was focusing on a central green courtyard. The L-Shaped plan is here creating spaces that are encouraging the natural ventilation and the permanent communication between interior and exterior design in the privacy offered by the vegetation.
The budget for this dream has been rather low, just a little under 1 million dollars. We would love to hear your opinion on this extraordinary design.
