Singapore home has amazing connection to nature

The JKC1 House is a family home designed by Singapore-based architectural firm ONG & ONG located in Bukit Timah, Singapore. The house sits on a slight incline overlooking a pool in the front yard, following the feng shui belief of balancing the mountain and water elements. Here is a description from the architects, “the first floor’s living and dining area is a vast and continuous space providing unobstructed views of the pool and front lawn. The generously proportioned kitchen with laundry area is located to the back of the house together with the garage. A centralized, combination staircase leads up into the open courtyard directly above the kitchen. To the left, is the master suite with bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, while the children’s bedrooms and adjoining playroom occupy the opposite side. In the middle, a multi-purpose family area takes up the front section, while the back area houses an additional room. From the courtyard, a spiral staircase ascends onto the terrace that can serve as a BBQ or entertainment area where guests can take in the beautiful views of the surrounding greenery. Generous use of space is what distinguishes this house from others, making it a welcome relief from Singapore’s high-density urban environment.”
