A Gorgeous Modern House Where the Pool’s the Star!


Designed by architects Ong & Ong Pte, this modern house in Singapore is meant to give you “a spatial experience that excites the senses by promoting light.” The architects sought to create a relationship between the metallic elements and subtle tones within the house by wrapping aluminum cladding in the air well.

The coolest part, of course, is that you can open up the glazed partitions of the house so that the first floor becomes one large living space.

Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
