THE GREJA HOUSE BY PARK + ASSOCIATES

Park + Associates Singapore : Designed by team members Lim Koon Park, Christina Thean and Adrian A.Gesmundo at Park + Associates at Singapore, The key feature of the house is the ethereal envelope that veils the private spaces of the house. The perforation aperture, density, and pattern of the white screen was studied to understand how it would affect privacy, lighting as well as heat transmission. The adopted solution – white powder coated expanded metal lathe spot welded to steel sections provided a cost effective design feature. Detailing was kept minimal to reflect a clean and refined aesthetic favoured by the client. The interior finishes comprise a palette of white marble, granite slabs, and bamboo flooring.

INSPIRATION:

The brief from the client was simple. They asked a house in which the various spaces are connected to each other and promotes interactions within the household. Furthermore, the client wanted a house that is markedly different from its context – a design with clean lines.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The design sought to heighten the occupants’ sensorial awareness and to increase domestic interactions. The scheme imagines domestic spaces connected within a flow.Key to the idea of flow are notions of connection and circulation, which informed the way the spaces are composed. Departing from the conventional approach where walls are used to define space, the domestic programmes are composed as interconnecting voids.

OPERATION :

The design opens up the spaces to connect and communicate with one another across multiple directions, creating an expanded network of connections that increases the opportunities for familial interactions.
