Faber House Residential Home by Diego Molina and Maria Arango

Home > Winners > #65903


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Faber House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Home

INSPIRATION:
Faber was crafted to suit the needs of the family. From an expansive kitchen defined by sleek stone that was personalised for the wife, to an entertainment room that stretches out across the basement, every aspect was tailored for the client.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This residence was designed to fulfill the needs of the client, where their two foremost considerations were family and friends. Envisioning a place where friends and loved ones could gather, the new home was to be the warm hearth around which family life could revolve, filled with laughter and happy memories of those closest. As such, architects created a home that could grow symbiotically with the young family, with numerous features and touches that would also make it ideal for socialising.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The entrance hall recedes to reveal the living area. To erase the boundary between interior and exterior spaces, a system of retractable glass windows was installed to provide versatility to the space, transforming the living area from open-air to glass enclosed. A sculptural staircase occupies the double volume space. Fabricated from folded black sheet metal, the staircase serves to segregate basement and ground floor common areas from the private quarters on the top floor.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project began in 2014 in Singapore and was completed in 2016.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Faber features two rectangular volumes stacked atop one another, forming the core of the residence. A sand-coloured wood panel façade lines the entrance foyer, separating the stone-lined driveway from the lap pool behind. Made from zircon wood, the façade at the entrance foyer introduces the timber motif that manifests throughout. The home is also highlighted by an intricate metal façade of retractable screens, which shield the upper floor bedrooms from sunlight and heat.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Site Area: 778.10m2 GFA: 724.73 m2

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Upon working closely with our client whom has a wife and two grade-school-aged children, we strategically tailored the residence to suit their needs. The architects adopted the effective optimisation of space to incorporate top-tier facilities like entertainment systems, wine cellar and a lap pool to create a personalised space for each family member.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge of this project was acquiring the right balance of meeting practical demands of the client as well as infusing stylistic themes into the residence all while preserving gardens and maximizing greens. This is apparent through the use of perforated aluminium mesh on the second storey, which not only caters to the client's privacy, but also controls internal ambient temperatures and introduces light and shadow interplay among the lush environment.
