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.
A stunning central courtyard and pool area become the main social zones of the second level of the house that also contains the living area kitchen dining room pantry terrace and a guest space. It is the first level beneath it that houses both the parents and kids’ bedrooms.
Using two intersecting volumes the architects aimed to overcome the challenge of creating a stylish spacious and organic family home with a light-filled and airy interior. It is the lower levels of the two volumes that house the large living area and an additional family room along with a sleek modern kitchen in white and a lovely dining space.
The new Cor-Ten steel structure flows into the landscape that surrounds the house and acts as a lovely and functional transitional zone between the interior and the outdoors. The color of the extension allows it to complement the existing brick structure of the home beautifully even as metal and glass bring a healthy dose of textural contrast and modernity to the setting.
The living area and kitchen open up into the rear patio and enjoy the benefits of a breezy indoor-outdoor interplay. With smart ambient lighting being coupled with gorgeous Coral pendant lights there is never a dull moment here.
