SELETAR CLOSE : THE APARTMENT HOUSE

 Singaporean practice Formwerkz Architects has completed such a contemporary house in Seletar Estate, Singapore where the idea of cluster living “apartments” with open communal spaces was devised for the multi-generation families living under one roof.  While paying close attention to the needs of the end user and constructing a residence from the primary state, Formwerks focused on the requests of each person on an individual basis as well as their function as a group or a whole. 

The way that the house has been divided and designed around the pool in the ground floor seems as if the house is floating and the base starts from the first floor and onwards with the solid concrete construction.  Furthermore, a vertical garden sets the boundaries of the house with the exterior world by creating a sense of privacy. – via yatzer
