Ficus House


2015 / Singapore / Private client

In collaboration with Hatterwan Architects

There are no grand gestures here. The house is understated, yet commands an undeniable presence on the site while remaining uncompromisingly functional. Designed upon a simple parti of two rectangular lots organized around a central courtyard, the three generations are allocated to the different wings of the house, with a key consideration to bring an abundance of light, wind and nature into the house, achieved, once again, by the courtyard – a keen modern take on a similar space in the traditional shophouse.
