Daring Architecture and Space Planning: Diamond House in Singapore 1

Formwerkz Architects completed the design and development for Diamond House, a daring family residence located along Cove Drive in Sentosa, Singapore. According to the architects, the project’s unusual geometry is derived from “negotiating with the planning parameters imposed on the neighborhood and the desire to simplify the building form. The front and side facades are pared down with openings strategically position to allow optimal daylighting with minimum compromise in privacy. The sloping walls at the corners allow for a smaller footprint while expanding the spatial volume at upper levels”. Iron wood, oak and travertine were the main materials employed in the building process.

Respecting the inhabitants’ need for privacy, the Diamond House took on a multi-faceted shape, hiding most interiors located in close proximity to the street and neighboring houses. The imposing rooms open up towards a swimming pool, a man-made lake and gardens. Any thoughts on this unusual architecture approach?
