Completed in 2011, JKC1 is a spacious feng shui inspired house in Bukit Timah, Singapore designed by ONG&ONG. Sitting on a slightly inclined slope of land with a pool in the front yard, the modern house’s design is based on the feng shui belief that the “water” and “mountain” elements should be balanced.

The first floor contains the large, open dining and living areas of the house and offers continuous views of the pool and yard. A staircase in the center of the house leads to the second floor and an open courtyard. The second floor houses the bedrooms, playroom, and a family area. In the courtyard, there is a killer spiral staircase that takes you to the open rooftop terrace. The house is open and spacious with most rooms featuring floor to ceiling glass windows and sliding glass doors.
