Designed by Wunschhaus Architektur and spread across 411 square meters the 3-story house has a wonderful indoor-outdoor interplay thanks to the extensive use of sweeping glass walls and large glass doors. While the creation of a light-filled interior was one of the prime objectives here the homeowners also wanted an interior that encouraged interaction between family members with each space flowing into the next.
While it is stone that shapes the home on the outside the interior presents a more curated look with traditional elements meeting modern ergonomics. Exposed timber surfaces in the family room and bedrooms usher in inviting warmth while neutral hues coupled with bright accents shape the living area.
Open wooden cabinets and the wooden cabin-style bedroom create further textural contrast without ever altering the more curated atmosphere of the penthouse. Each of the four bedrooms is given its own unique look with subtle changes in décor to ensure every space has a special exclusive feel even while seeming like an extension of the central living area.
If you ever dreamed up a modern day reinterpretation of a classic castle then this mesmerizing home nestled in Sentosa Cove would not be far off. It might not have those tall towers or even countless rooms that stretch across several acres but it makes up for in splendor what it lacks in sheer extravagant size.
Working around both the historical and solar limitations of the site Nic Owen Architects revamped the interior of the home completely by altering its floor plan and also added a modern rear extension.
