JKC1 House by Ong & Ong

JKC1 House by Ong & Ong is a bungalow situated in Singapore’s hilly Bukit Timah area. Built on a slight incline, the residence is distinguished by its generous use of space — a rarity in the nation’s dense urban landscape — as well as lush tropical vegetation and uninterrupted views of the surrounding environment. Aesthetically, the house’s design is subtle, deferring to the natural beauty of the site and balancing the feng shui elements of “mountain” and “water.” Horizontal lines and basic materials abound — fare-faced concrete, rough stone, timber and glass — along with smoother interior materials and finishes that juxtapose nicely with the façade’s rougher exterior. Meanwhile, the house’s living spaces are defined by vast, continuous rooms and a centralized staircase, continuing the design’s themes of fluidity, serenity and generous proportions. Along with its pool and courtyard, JKC1 House is a unique balance of architecture and greenery, a refreshing oasis in a modern and bustling city-nation.
