Faber Park, a Modern Architectural Residence in Singapore
By admin • Jan 15, 2011
The house (6,400 sq ft) was built for a couple with three kids, all less than 10 years old. The client wished to have a space built so that the children could play both indoors and outdoors.
The second level of the house, cantilevered over the driveway, is a private living area including a master suite, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The cantilever gives the entrance to the house an enclosed, protected feel.
The material used here is an alloy of titanium and zinc which gives this rectangular volume a dark mat finish.
The basement of the home has a nice family room lighted up naturally by the sun and a cinema for family movie nights.
45 Faber Park by Ong & Ong Architects:
“The most attention-grabbing detail of this project is the dark grey metal cladding used generously on the external facade, oozing out modern, edgy vibes. To complement the edginess, plenty of natural materials such as timber-teak and teak strips were used liberally throughout the whole house.

A colossal, spiral staircase greets one in the immaculate interior, commanding a strong visual axis. This forms the focal point of the entire house. In line with the eco-theme, a skylight was constructed at the basement which enables natural sunlight to stream in.
The client requested for as much greenery as possible, therefore, much of the landscape was left untouched except for a big lap pool with timber slabs on the sides functioning as the sun deck.”
