It may be a little rough around the edges at first sight but the impression of sturdiness gives way to the perception of care for detail and shape. A beautiful home for lovers of both minimalism and nature. A very special tropical home the so-called Winged House in Singapore was built on a triangular and rather narrow piece of land. It’s formal difficulty was overcome with grace and phantasy by its creators K2LD Architects.
This stunningly modern seaside home by Elton & Leniz Architects enjoys a beautiful scenery of rough nature cactae and spruce vegetation crude soil and a steel blue sea. Accordingly the materials and shapes that went into the design are rather rough and angular frames of exposed concrete and a wood planking left in a milder natural finish two textures that complement themselves wonderfully.
Its complementing gardens display a simple greenery landscaping of reeds local rocks and wooden sundecks that make the adjacent swimming pool resemble a natural lake. The outer walls are warm and welcoming in a natural wood finish while the black lattices of the upper story protect against the dry sun and bring a minimalistic and rougher accent to the facade.
Leigh Osbourne and Graham Voce decided that they would buy an old water tower originally built in 1877 that was not really in the best of conditions even when everyone else seemed to be running away from the almost ‘ancient’ structure. The derelict Grade II-listed 19th-century 99ft-high water tower is located in central London. It presented them with a unique opportunity to dream up an amazing and lavish home that will not just you with its stunning interiors but also sheer audacity of thought and execution.
These characteristics seem to be a common thread that connects all the contemporary residences designed by SAOTA. The large glazed areas sporadic use of wood that is mostly relegated to the exterior and the patio space beautiful integration of exteriors with the interiors so as to form one large visual space and ergonomic décor complete the structure. Built among rolling dunes and dense vegetation the home is put on an elevated platform to ensure that those inside never miss a beat when it comes to what is happening around them.
