This elegant and chic residence can be found in Singapore. It has been renovated in 2010 by RichardHO Architects and it features a modern and quite unexpected design. The prewar shop-house was beautifully transformed. It now features a retractable glass roof and an interior koi pond, both elements that make it stand out.
Initially, the residence was in quite good condition. However, it didn’t have the layout and design that the owners wanted to it had to be transformed in order to become more suitable for modern living. Several major changes had to be made. For example, the kitchen and the bathrooms were initially located at the back of the house and this wasn’t exactly a layout appropriate for entertaining. As a result, the house had to be reconfigured.
