Designed by WOW architects the Sunset Vale house sits on a small urban plot in Singapore. In contrast to the neighbouring residences the massing of the house seeks to preserve and replace lost greenery including a local frangipani tree. Large floor to ceiling openings engage the landscaped courtyards, pools and gardens. The dominant finish of concrete is poured in place using durian wood formwork to visually soften the texture adding subtly and warmth. Additional finishes include split-face granite slabs, etched glass and bamboo flooring.
