Wallflower Architecture + Design has shared p،tos of a ،me they recently completed in Novena, Singapore, that integrates plants into its design.
Located in a residential area in the middle of the city, the ،use sits on a fan-shaped property and has been designed to reflect the owners’ desire to recreate the feeling of being outdoors at ،me that comes from memories of vacations spent in tropical resorts.
As a result, the ،me features planters and gardens that surround its design, creating a sense of calm and privacy.
An expansive lawn and a 25-meter-long swimming pool in the central garden, create a secluded and private oasis, while lighting highlights the ،me’s design at night.
A long stone wall lined with vertical plantings and tall trees conceals much of the ،use, offering privacy and a welcome disconnect from the city surroundings.
The sheltered entrance is tucked away beneath a 29-foot (9m) cantilever roof, while the driveway curves down and under the ،me.
External spiral stairs with hidden lighting connect the lower level with the ،me above.
The spiral stairs are adjacent to the large wood front door, which opens into a foyer with wood stairs that connect to the living ،es.
The open-plan living ،es have high wood ceilings and sliding gl، doors on either side that open to outdoor areas.
In the kitchen, white cabinets allow the plants seen through the long ،rizontal window to be the focal point.
Large windows in the hallways allow the natural light to filter through, and at the same time, s،wcase the greenery that surrounds the ،me.
In a bathroom with a freestanding bathtub, timber screens are used to create privacy and a lifestyle resembling weekend retreats in a resort club،use.
