This detached landed home in Bukit Timah comprises an Escher-like labyrinth of spaces. Think different levels, heights and proportions, twisting and turning, expanding and contracting as you move through them.

When the homeowners purchased this property a few years ago, a cost analysis showed that it made more sense to demolish the old house and build a new one. Even though the existing home was still in fairly good condition, starting from scratch would allow the young family to build a home designed according to their lifestyle and needs.
The project, which took about 20 months, is a collaboration between the established Formwerkz Architects and the younger Super Assembly, whose principal architect, Iskandar Idris, worked at Formwerkz Architects before going out on his own.
AT A GLANCE
“As colleagues, we enjoyed the dynamics of working together on a project, so this was no different. Although I was the qualified person (QP) for this project, we were both fully involved in all aspects, from conception to completion”, says Alan Tay, one of Formwerkz Architects’ founding partners.
