House Tour: A monochromatic semi-detached house inspired by black-and-white colonial houses

Inspired by black-and white colonial houses, homeowners Ong Yu-en and Celine Ong wanted architect Wu Yen Yen of GAD Pte Ltd to incorporate elements such as a monochromatic colour scheme, pitched roof, high ceilings and louvre windows into this Additions and Alterations (A&A) two-storey, five-bedroom, semi-detached project. “We wanted to preserve the traditional architectural features of Singapore, which are slowly being eroded with time,” shares the couple, who are lawyers.
