Diamond House

Diamond House, a family residence in Singapore. According to the architects, the project’s unusual geometry is derived from “negotiating with the planning parameters imposed on the neighborhood and the desire to simplify the building form. The front and side facades are pared down with openings strategically position to allow optimal daylighting with minimum compromise in privacy. The sloping walls at the corners allow for a smaller footprint while expanding the spatial volume at upper levels”. Iron wood, oak and travertine were the main materials employed in the building process.
