Monochrome interior design at Goodlink by Locus Associates
Hong Kong-based architectural practice, Locus Associates., has designed the Goodlink project. The luxury and stylish home is located in Admiralty, Singapore.
According to the architects: “Any attempt to reconstruct an old dwelling house in order to increase its floor area and programme while retaining an existing structure is a tumultuous design challenge.
“The task was especially so since this involved increasing a full floor, a front & rear wing extension with a radical facade update. Being attached physically to a neighbour as a semi-detached villa, how does an architectural design alter and marry another at the same time?
“The massing called for a series of solids and voids to reduce the increase in bulk whilst maintaining a certain quietude in respecting her context. Wide verandahs, deep balconies and two courtyards nip and tuck into the building to cool and shade in the intense tropical heat and sunlight. Custom-made operable louvers in the courtyards and bathrooms allow for passive cross-ventilation.
“A reduced palette of materials in monochromatic tones harking back to a colonial black and white house maintains consistency throughout its architecture and interior design. In choosing finishes and colours that echo the architectural facade, spaces flow seamlessly between inside and out, allowing the house to evolve with timelessness.”
