Architects Alan Tay and Seetoh Kum Loon, partners at Formwerkz Architects, are no strangers to designing houses. But the houses, including several award-winning ones, have mostly been in Singapore and at least two storeys high.
So when their client commissioned them to design a home on his 45,000 sq ft land in Johor Baru, the architects jumped at the chance to re-invent the concept of a tropical home.
Home Landed house in Johor Bahru
Size 45,000 sq ft (4,180 sqm)
Who Lives Here A couple with 3 kids
Architects Alan Tay, Seetoh Kum Loon from Formwerkz Architects
Larger than a Good Class Bungalow
At two to three times the size of an average good class bungalow plot in Singapore, the architects literally had plenty of space to play with.
The family, a couple with three kids, were living in Singapore, but moved to Johor Bahru, Malaysia because they wanted more space and also to be away from the fast-paced city life.
