is as variable as the bachelors who call them home but several rules of thumb can make your home more user-friendly comfortable and fun to live in. Don’t spend money on a professional range if you don’t cook. On the other hand if you are a gourmet chef go ahead and hang a pot rack or have that cutting board inset installed in your counter.
The blocks have then been interconnected by an open staircase. The front elevation of the house is kept off sight from street. The huge door welcomes you to the inner wonders. The entrance leads you to a beautiful bluish pool which is near to entrance of the building. Right at the middle of the structure is a double height space which acts as a corridor to the rest of the house.
Our advice; make sure you get to see this magnificent structure at least once. At the time of signing a contract with the renovation company the owners of the 1950s big old Mosi House never thought that their house could ever look as wonderful as it is now. In fact Nico van der Meulen Architects from South Africa simply did the unthinkable.

The environment surrounding this house is really calm and tranquil giving a wonderful view to the landscape lying ahead of it. The designers have intentionally selected large glass panels for windows and doors for unobstructed view to the surrounding greenery.
Designed by architect Desmond Ong on a minimalist concept the Singapore residence has had its wall removed so as to provide the feel of open space. It is light airy and seemingly spacious. By avoiding bulky interiors and furniture the design has been given a sense of added openness. Usage of light colors and large glass windows gives also adds to large space outlook. The bedrooms and the bathroom designs are kept very simple while the open glass windows provide fro a green view outside.
Everything is well balanced even with the oversized furniture (see that huge office table) and the bold art work in the dining room. Speaking of the open dining space the 10-person dining set grabs the eye as it’s stunningly illuminated by a series of cube pendants. Even more fascinating are the rays of the rising and setting sun flow in similar pattern into the dining room.
Further cooling is provided by wooden paneling given at intervals along the tall walls. The interior looks as wonderful as exterior. Very beautiful and expensive furniture are just another brilliant treat to your eyes. The house gets its design after taking positional environmental and climatic factors into consideration. The designers seem to have taken extra care to provide a good amount of privacy.
