ONG&ONG Pte Ltd Designs a Contemporary Private Residence in Singapore
By Jessica • Feb 18, 2017
When you live in a climate that’s pleasant and warm all year round, you’ve got the perfect scenario for a stunning open concept home. With every building that adopts an open concept, however, the challenge is to find innovative ways to still provide the residents with enough privacy to make them feel comfortable and safe in their daily lives. As with anything, a license to get creative in one feature opens doors for unique decor and design elsewhere in the home as well. KAP-House is a shining example of what we mean.
KAP-House is a private residential home located in a gorgeously sunny neighbourhood in Singapore. It was conceptualized, designed, and brought to life by creative teams at ONG&ONG Pte Ltd. The home was completed in late 2016 and is sure to set precedent in the way it’s walls and rooms are constructed.
On the ground floor, you’ll find that the outer walls on each side of the primary living rooms are completely retractable, sliding along a set of tracks in the ceiling and decompressing into the stationary walls to be compact and out of the way. This allows the kitchen and family rooms to open entirely onto the gorgeous patio and yard so that visitors and family members can enjoy the relaxing reflective pool area and the comfortable, Boho chic outdoor seating area. While the master bedroom isn’t as open concept as the central rooms, it certainly gets its fair share of the view and the sunlight. Rather than a retractable wall, this bedroom features a wide, horizontal window that opens entirely.
