A ‘Green’ Oasis in the Heart of Singapore

 

Completed earlier this year by architecture and design firm FARM, Wall House is an oasis in the heart of the concrete jungle. Located in the highly urbanized city-state of Singapore, the home is surrounded by lush greenery with trees throughout and multiple green roofs.

The landscape design takes its inspiration from the philosophy of classical Chinese Gardens, where views are borrowed through cutouts and vistas and where sight lines and spaces begin to overlap.

The large property consists of a two-story block with the main living and master bedroom area, and a single-story block housing the entertainment areas of the house. The two volumes are linked together through a huge central courtyard.
