This is totally my kind of house, simple, modern, contemporary, zen ... and super expensive!
This house was designed by Ong & Ong and it is located 55 Blair Road in Singapore. Stunning photos by Derek Swalwell.
I know I would never live in Singapore, at least not this life, but I would LOVE this kind of house in a more affordable place like Manhattan or the 1st arrondissement in Paris for example ;-)
To create a light open plan living space, whilst promoting Inside/outside space. The contrasting relationship between the metallic elements and subtle tones within the house create an exciting spatial relationship throughout.
From the outside you would never guess what's inside.
55 Blair road project is a renovation and restoration to a traditional art deco style shop house. Originally the house was renovated 10 years ago. The new owner however believed it was too dark and desired more light in the living spaces.
