Architect Vincent Lim of Visual Text Architects (VTxT) was fortunate enough to meet the homeowners of this bungalow, who prize design over the maximisation of their built-in space.
Other than wanting lots of greenery, a koi pond, and a swimming pool for their new home, the family put their complete trust in him to deliver a house that would suit their lifestyle. The result is a delightfully simple two-storey bungalow with an exposed column-and-beam design and mono-pitched roof emblematic of Modernist architecture.
The house has a modern shell, or “pavilion-like structure”.
Two coats of waterproof paint on all the bathroom walls work just as well as tiles, but look much better, says Vincent.
The wood tones also lend a cosy and warm ambience to this intimate space.
This three-storey semi-detached house has the relaxing atmosphere of a Balinese retreat. Big outdoor furniture in a rattan weave and a tree-trunk dining table bring home that Balinese villa experience.
The home provides the owners a real Balinese villa experience that lets them feel as if they're on holiday. Bedspreads, cushions and curtains are coordinated to match the look too!
A round tub, bamboo towel rack and tall plants turn a bland bathroom into a tropical oasis.
