When the homeowners of this two-and-a-half storey home in Bukit Timah tasked RT+Q Architects with its design, the brief was a straightforward one. “We asked for a well-ventilated home that would encourage interaction between family members,” says the wife, who lives with her husband, their three kids and her mother-in-law. The couple are both traders.
The family had previously lived in two apartments, with the grandmother on her own, but “we decided to build a multigenerational home, so that we can all be under the same roof,” says the wife.
A spokesman from RT+Q Architects says that apart from the client’s brief, “the project presented an opportunity for us to explore the idea of a ‘free section’ where spaces flow vertically in a fluid manner”.
