Singapore architects, Wallflower Architecture + Design creates tangible space amidst urban density.

The client’s desire for the home to have a perception of substantial private space has resulted in the development of a spatial program that internalizes spaces such as pools and gardens normally regarded as external to the envelope of the house. By zoning spaces such as the bedrooms and servants’ quarters on alternative levels, i.e. 2nd storey and basement levels, the ground plane is freed from walls that would have been required if public and private programs were interlaced on the same plane.

When we were asked to design this house, we started in a slight margin to locate the building, because there was a previous project from another architect that started to remove part of the stone to build his house. As a great big hole had been paid for (and stone as you know is expensive to remove) we stayed at the exact point were the other architect left. Besides that issue our project was ab-initio. There was no reason to recycle the previous dreadful project. Believe me, it was heartbreaking.

social condenser 5 Blank Studio   Social Condenser for Superior

The Social Condenser project is located at the base of the Superstition Mountain Range in the Town of Superior, Arizona which was founded in 1882 and has strong ties to mining of copper, silver and gold. The project is uniquely positioned between historic Main Street and Queen Creek. The site consists of two parcels, the project parcel to the north and an open landscaped parcel to be developed into future outdoor dining and music pavilion, and is bisected by an access path from the upper street level and a lower wooden footbridge that spans across the creek.
