Located in the tropical climate of Singapore, The Winged House takes the stage in its neighborhood by using unusual and global elements in its design. The triangle-shaped home’s design, imagined by K2LD Architects, was partially inspired by the Minangkabau roof that’s traditionally found in Malay architecture.
The home was built around three palm trees that are 20-meters high each and located at the center of the triangular plot of land.
One of the points opens up to a pool that’s surrounded by lush, native greenery. Part of the pool area is covered with overhanging eaves to provide shelter.
The openness allows the spaces to be naturally ventilated.
The roof elements overlap leaving a small split to allow light to filter in.
Massive window panes give the indoors a feeling of being outside while protecting the space from the elements. Oh hey there, weird upside-down red person sculpture.
