Sentosa Cove Singapore
Commissioned by a family based in Thailand, the house is located in Singapore’s luxury seaside residential enclave of Sentosa Cove. The starting point for the design was very site specific, to emphasize the primary views to the rear, whilst maintaining privacy along the road frontage.
We anchored the house around a double height Living Room space, with panoramic views over the pool to the golf course.All bedrooms spill into this double volume, and a bridge connects through this double height space to the Junior Master Suite. The Living Room also looks back on lush planting beside the entrance driveway which enhances the feeling of space but affords privacy from the road. A large overhang canopy on the lake side shields the curtain wall glazing from solar radiation, whilst an enveloping wave roof form overhang opens up on the road side of the house to let diffuse daylight into the Living Room space. In the Dining area, an open plan kitchen and solid teak dining table overlook the 30m infinity pool and lake/golf course beyond. In the Basement a reflecting pond connects the space visually to the entrance through a triple height space, covered by the wave form roof over, which provides natural light and ventilation for the Carpark, which can park up to 10 cars.
