INSPIRATION:
With a voluminous and column-free living room, dining room, open kitchen; and the lap pool on one side spanning more than half the length of the house - the entire length of wall on the first floor called for a definitive treatment to bring a clear concept and theme into the light-filled living space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Noce House is located within an affluent area on the east coast of Singapore. With 5,800 square feet of built-in area over three storeys, the house has its own lap pool, elevator, five bedrooms and a roof garden. The aim was to create a modern contemporary interiors that is luxurious, and achieve a look that is timeless, communicating fine living and stature. To accommodate three generations living under one roof, spatial planning was of utmost importance. Entertainment of family and friends called for a bespoke treatment of the interiors.

With an extensive scope of works that include layout changes and a full fit-out, this project was completed in a period of 6 months. Close site supervison from the creative lead, the project manager and the main contractor ensured minimal mistakes and and near-zero slippage on the timeline.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
How can one create a sense of movement and elegance with wood? In this instance, with the choice of walnut. Waltz comes to mind. Waltz is a dance where the dancers adopt a very upright posture. The movements are prim and proper - very structured movements. Two dancers feel and move as one. The walnut column mirrors the physical form of a couple dancing waltz. The top and bottom supporting members connects the two long members - mirrors two individuals in waltz, becoming one. If one can imagine a grand ballroom where waltz is performed by say fifty couples, one will invariable feel a sense of grandeur. So in repeating the walnut columns across the entire length of the house interior on one side, scale is achieved to communicate the same - grandeur and elegance, albeit in a more contemporary and modern form. A waltz with walnut.

CHALLENGE:
The aim was to create a modern luxury residence that is contemporary, communicating fine living and stature. The creative challenge was to design a singular design element that can be applied throughout the house for coherence of theme and continuity. To have modern luxury felt not just on the first floor, but in every space throughout the house. On one side of the house, the wall runs the entire length from the Living Room to the Staircase, and continues to the Elevator, the Walk-in Closet, the Powder Room, and finally the Open Kitchen. The Lap Pool spans the opposite side terrace of the house, with its full height floor-to-ceiling sliding glass panels. Clear from the beginning was that the stretch of wall needed a definitive design element that can be applied to the entire length to give the interior its theme. In consideration of achieving a modern form with a timeless look, walnut was chosen to be the main material and finish. A singular walnut column element was designed, comprising of two long members and two short supporting members, becoming the defining element of the concept for the interiors. This walnut column element was applied to the length of the Living Room, the Staircase including a concealed door to a utility space underneath, and the Dining Room. The walnut columns also serves as a divider to the Staircase leading up to the upper floors. The concept continues on the third floor, where these walnut columns runs the length of a counter ledge in the Bar Lounge and Entertainment Room.
