Winged Residence by K2LD Architects

K2LD Architects have created the Winged Property in Singapore.
A private family residence situated on a uniquely shaped triangular plot, the Winged House frames the website with two prominent forms – the trapeziums. These forms open towards the primary view at the back of the web site where 3 existing majestic palms are, and of lush greenery. These embracing types carve out and frame a middle garden for friendly and private gatherings. In response to the tropical climate context, the formal exploration took a turn from cutting openings from a pure trapezoid form to separating roof from form. The comprehensive roof overhangs for naturally ventilated spaces, are enjoyed with significantly shelter and shade even throughout the seasonal heavy rain downpours.

An exploration of the roof form went further with the separation of roof from roof. This split of the roof accomplished a play of light and shadows into the interior space. Spaces such as the double volume Dining area, the 2nd storey passageway and the huge Patio are all celebrated with the overlapping split roof and its light play. This slot is further enhanced at evening with concealed light fittings illuminating the split. Materiality is essential to strengthening the relationship of the two winged types, its space in-between and roof on roof.

In the intermediate space amongst two types is the main entrance foyer and Living area which is flanked with two function all-natural split granite walls, contrasting its heavy presence with the lightness of the roofs and vertical timber lines of the home. Timber is extensively utilized all through the residence, picking a lighter colour timber (Burmese Teak) for the underside of the roofs versus the darker wood (Chengai) as the infill medium (ie: the sun-shading screens) to develop a play of depth of the fa├žade. The vertical timber screens not only assist in supplying shade from the harsh sun, but it aids blend the house with the lush vertical tree trunks of the surrounding greenery. The Winged Property, in its formal expressions and material language, results in an abode that sits snugly in its context in a quiet ‘winged’ embrace of the site and dwelling within.
