The Surprising Features of the Screen House in Singapore
With an area of 6,350 square foot this contemporary house in Singapore exhibits an incredible description. This house is named as Screen House which was proudly designed by the K2LD Architects. Its design is involved of a linear block that is in front of the street with a curvilinear pavilion which is elevated on pilot above the prevailing shared garden. Moreover, the architect said that this is the first time that they practice to design something non-rectilinear form of the house. Eventually the curvilinear shape of this house did not help them to achieve their dream so they started to work with an L-shaped block. But later on it helps them to decide to soften its geometrical figure. For them this is considered to be the best counterpart of its two direct neighbors namely the Lien Family’s colonial bungalow and the Cubic House.
The Screen House compliments with the Lien’s Colonial bungalow. They used the design strategy better known as disappearance. This is true when this is clearly referring to the architect’s intention to mix and match the elements of architecture together. With that the architect has a lot of surprising designs applied in the interior and exterior of the house.
