OCEAN DRIVE HOUSE I  |  Singapore, 2004

The residence at Ocean Drive, Sentosa Cove has an L-shaped plan spanning a landscaped garden, which incorporates a reflective pool and an outdoor pavilion that opens to the ocean.

The built form emphasises the timber upper floor that floats over the solid enclosure of the lower floor, providing a backdrop for the internal spaces open to the ocean. The elevation has a dual arrangement with a rough broken stone wall to the first storey, which separates the living areas from the roadsides by a horizontal glass slit. A lighter second storey cantilevers out, wrapped by a veil of vertical timber battens.
