Minimalist property – Bass Ensemble by Hyla Architects


Singapore-based architectural practice, Hyla Architects, have designed the Bass Ensemble project. The minimalist property can be found in Singapore City, Singapore.

This luxury home oozes minimalist tones and boasts a wow-factor contemporary staircase.


According to the architects: “Our first project at Sentosa Cove, this bungalow presents a simple and subtle statement along Cove Way. Hidden behind a bamboo planting screen, the 1st storey is transparent – privacy being provided by a series of horizontal timber blinds.

“These complement the oxidized brass roof that folds to become the front facade and also the canopy and carporch in one dynamic sweep. The living, dining and dry kitchen open across a covered timber terrace and an infinity lap pool. This maximises the entertainment possibilities at the 1st storey for our client.


“The pool deck then cascades to a lower terrace level, before connecting to the seawall with it’s future yacht mooring on the water. A unique stair structure clad in timber connects the three levels.

“The master bathroom utilises a barrel vaulted roof space and an oval skylight to create an interplay of light and shade. At the attic, the guest bathroom is seen as an extension of a luxe spa bath opening out onto a pebble garden on the roof terrace.”
