Project Location:


A District 09 location,
a penthouse apartment,
a million-dollar view of the heart of the city.

“We like textures” was the brief from the onset, setting the tone for the new matrimonial home, re-imagined in rich textural contrast and warmth.

What started out as a simple renovation, grew in scale and aspiration as we — together with the clients — revealed and uncovered new potential for spaces, material textures, and experiences.

A once-confined double volume lounge has now become the true heart of the home, inter- connecting, and inter-weaving the layers of spaces that surround it.

In turn, we envisioned the function and impact of a inverted, wooden lattice box, hovering over, and cradling the core of this home, each of its sides and surfaces responding to the needs and whims of the series of programs that encounter it.

The daily sundown
A warm glow runs its course
through interwoven
timber lattices
that cusp and surround this home
