Now this is something you don't see every day. This modern home is definitely something that you can't miss while passing by, even though Singapore is full of impressive homes like this. This dream home is called Andrew Road Residence and it's designed by a-dlab.
Andrew Road residence is a 650 square meter dream home, built this year (2013) for one lucky family. Property is located in famous central Singapore, overlooking the MacRitchie Reservoir, Singapore's oldest reservoir. Story behind the shape of this impressive dream home is quite interesting. According to the architects, terrain is quite undulating with the highway behind the house. All this creates unwanted noise, so architects had to think outside the box to solve this issue and offer peaceful and calm home atmosphere.
Entrance with covered parking lot is located on the street level while rest of the house is sunken and adjusted to the terrain. All this defined impressive shape of this home which is something I like the most here. Besides green roofs and overall landscape design around the house, I would like to say I definitely adore those glass walls which could easily be completely closed with wooden blinds, hidden swimming pool and terrace which can only be seen from the air and bridges connecting separated parts of this dream home.
Speaking of interior design, I have no words to describe it. It's perfect. Minimalist with combination of white marble and dark wood and there's also glass and other modern materials which turned this residence into amazing modern home. I'm done. Take a look at those pictures and floor plans to better understand this dream home. Hope you love it as much as I do. Great work architects.
