Open architecture is modern and demanding in every sense. It conveys generosity and living comfort, the functional, clear, open floor plan underlines the modern lifestyle. This expands the living area, inside and out, Garden and living connected with each other. A house in Singapore – KAP House – serves as a prime example of this floor plan trend. It was launched in 2016 by the Ong&Ong Pte Ltd Architects.
Combining garden and living with one another – open architecture
The house is surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden. Green plants are one of the leitmotifs of the distinctive design of the house. Different types of plants can be seen in every room, but also from there. The areas flow into each other, then outwards. In between there are only design limits, the role of which is fulfilled by French doors and glass surfaces. There are only a few definable rooms, but the impression of spaciousness.
Combining garden and living – modern, chic, spacious
The arrangement of the French doors and glass surfaces ensure a lot of light, a lot of sun, a lot of freedom. The transitions between the design spaces are fluid. Living, dining and kitchen are linked to one another and form an open unit that is also open on both sides, but faces the garden. On one side is the infinity pool. A special system under the earth’s surface guarantees a direct view of the water.
Combining tropical gardens and living
Open floor plan planning like this means not only a direct connection between the garden and living space, but also an unobstructed view and lots and lots of light. The furniture is kept simple and reduced and thus destroys the generous effect of the open architecture.
