Sleek Black and White House in Singapore
Berrima House by Singapore’s Park + Associates has a Zen-like simplicity to it.
Sleek and glossy, this is a stark black and white house designed to counteract Singapore’s humid climate.
Its severely limited palette is intensified by expanses of glass.
The master bathroom continues the cool and glossy and black and white theme.
The house is centered around an internal grassy courtyard, with the living room under the childrens’ bedrooms.
The kitchen is placed in the diagonal corner, for the mother to oversee the family’s whereabouts while cooking.
A horizontal slit in the wall of the parent’s wing also allows reconnaissance across to the childrens’ wing.
A bridge connects the two wings of the house, with the living room in front of the parent’s’ wing on the right.
The U-shaped house is entered on the dining and kitchen side, under the parents’ wing.
From the entry next to the garage, another slit in the wall offers a peek into the lush central courtyard across to the bridge.
A brisk, concise and Zen-like plan.
