Residence at Sian Tuan Ave
As a sculpture carved out of stone, the villas emerges as a poetic art installation of exposed concrete, leaving no room for a glimpse inside from the street. The strikingly puristic concrete forms of the two villas give the pair an intense presence in the posh residential area in Singapore. Concrete screens protects both villas from the western sun while allowing for ventilation into the interiors. A stairwell slices through the deep plan of each villa to provide daylights into the space.
