Tropical Architecture Series: The Stereoscopic House


Most of the architects, usually have a hard time reaching sustainable eccentric stereoscopic designs. Why? Hard to say, every architect is unique, and has a distinct style because in his design are residing both his experience in the field, which is very different from architect to architect, and the life time experiences and taste as well. In this filter you can find eccentric designs, sustainable designs, minimalists designs or all together.

In this particular home we find all the three above, it`s a mesmerizing mix, very well mixed together. I`d say that because they`re welded by functionality, it`s not just a beautiful perforated panel or some “cool wood”, all seems to make sense, and when creating, the hardest thing is to justify your filters above as functionality, they have to work behind the apparel, they need a purpose.

The homes is entitled more or less the Stereoscopic House, it features sustainability facilities in a great resort like style with a lot twits and tricks inside. Leaving the high end apparel and organization aside, we would like to highlight it`s location as well, you`ve all heard of Singapore as a very restrictive high end country in which absolutely everything is strict and almost perfect. This home in particular is hosted in Singapore`s breathtaking resort island of Sentosa, defining the perfect retreat for any tropical beach retreat in my opinion. It`s very exclusive, special and it offers amazing views as you will see in the pictures.

The architects that are behind this master piece are called Pencil Office, and they have been commissioned by three sisters to realize a home with eco-friendly features as low-E glazing, solar hot-water heating, cross ventilation and rain harvesting system, all those capsuled into a contemporary modern design that would benefit greatly from the views. The villa is adorn with an unusual yet sustainable cover: patterned wood cladding . On the front facade the home gives you a brutal welcome in my opinion, it uses translucent panels to provide intimacy at the ground level and on the first floor. White shutters perforated by circular holes are used, a personal touch in the home, a motif which is found on other windows as well.
Considering that the retreat spreads along three levels and has a decent blueprint on the ground the result is a huge 608 square meters home, realized very thoughtful inside. Designed to create amazing perspectives and lightning games, different atmospheres materialized on the sides of a “distorted tube” on the upper floors that is meant to capture and focus attention on the breathtaking views.
