While I know some of you love Singapore architecture, this specifically house will make your jaw drop because Aamer Architects created a design that is nothing less than amazing. But like all great things, it’s best to show them than to describe them, so here are some images.
Here’s a brief description from the architects if the curiosity kills you:
Magnificent views towards the city from atop Siglap Hill inspired the design. Master and family room are placed on the third level having the best views.
Living and Dining on the second level, connected with external verandahs / terraces that flow upwards and fold into the roof form with deep overhangs for sufficient shade and channeling the breeze through the whole house.
Two resort style ‘Cabana’ bedrooms are located on the ground level by the pool with a large open/covered terrace for poolside parties. A sculptural metal ‘drum’ anchors the ‘ship’ to the ground and houses the toilet/shower and barbeque pantry.
Domplatz Linz – project description from the architects
The impressive neo-gothic Mariendom cathedral of Linz is clearly opposed by the unfinished Domplatz square, that had never been completed in accordance to the original idea to free up the entire quadrangle between the surrounding streets. This heterogeneous situation was unsatisfactory from the point of view of urban planning and was to be resolved by means of a competition, which also included the construction of a hotel and an underground car park as well as the revitalization of two existing baroque buildings.
By including the surrounding streets and by means of the solitary positioning of the new hotel a link to the heart of the city is created – a place at the square.
You might be student, or a senior architect, but I’m sure you want your projects to have the best presentation. Probably you have the skills, probably not. We all learn as we go, but every now and then I stumble upon amazing presentation teams like Studio Aiko. “Amazing, astonishing, beautiful, awesome” just won’t do when describing what these people can create.
Studio Aiko was founded by Yair Alony and Meny Hilsenrad in 2005, and is a young & dynamic studio, specializing in a wide variety of CG content and visual effects.
