Luxury homes: A striking facade hides space-maximising interiors

Being short on space didn’t stop Edmund Ng Architects from creating a contemporary residence that allows the owners to throw large parties.

    Walk past this intermediate-terrace along Grove Drive and you’ll likely do a double take. Unlike conventional terrace houses, this double-storey residence has a striking white cladding with an eye-catching pattern.

    “The owners wanted a screen that could offer privacy from the roadside. The goal was to design a facade that is unique yet functional. It also acts as an interplay between the vertical windows and the horizontal glass canopy of the car porch,” says architect Edmund Ng of Edmund Ng Architects, which was tasked with overhauling the property.

    The design, which draws on patterns commonly found in Asian arts and crafts, delivers on function, too. Crafted using Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) by Dryvit for its lightweight properties, it allows for cross ventilation and daylight into the house.
