Singapore-based practice Ong&Ong has recently completed JKC1, a single family residence in Bukit Timah, Singapore. Visitors enter through a series of elevated wooden platforms which lead to a swimming pool deck. A void within the stacked stone perimeter wall leads into the ground level dining and living area. Resting above the windowless solid enclosure, textured concrete bands beginning at the first level floor plates and roofline frame an upper level veranda which extends to overlook the front and back yards. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows border the bedrooms, providing privacy with moveable wooden screens while sliding doors allow direct access to the continuous balcony. On the first floor, a vegetated outdoor courtyard partitions with glass panels introduces streams of natural light to the surrounding interior corridors as well as the staircase from the dining and living areas. a spiral steel stair within the rock garden leads to a roof terrace with panoramic views into the canopies of nearby trees.
