House Tour: Egg-shaped house on Holland Road by RT+Q Architects

Being property developers, this couple had seen their fair share of square houses and wanted something different. They had already been living in their house for over 20 years, and it was torn down to make way for the new one.

Their brief to RT+Q Architects was to do something they had never done before. To meet her challenge, the architecture team came up with the idea of an egg-shaped house. “The owners love nature, which inspired us to create a soft form for the building, hence the organic shape,” says RT+Q associate Koh Sock Mui, who headed the project. “It also looks less intrusive in the neighbourhood.”
