Jalan Telang

Designed for a couple who are book lovers, this intermediate 2.5 storey terrace house is centred around a staircase that features a climbing bookcase lining the wall from the 1st storey to the attic. Natural light is brought into the middle of the house with a skylight at the apex of the pitched roof, and light streams down to the lower floors through glass railings and landings. A large balcony and a roof terrace at the rear of the house provide opportunities for outdoor living spaces with views to greenery in the east. The front facade which faces the west has the glazed areas recessed from the setback line and shaded with aluminium screens and plants.
Completed in 2008. GFA 191.4m2.
