Blind Corner

The solid form of this corner bungalow along Meyer Road is outwardly deceptive. Along this busy road, a reflective pond has been added at the 2nd storey, acting as water wall to the Living and Dining spaces. At the 2nd storey, a series of retractable external roller blinds provide shade and privacy to the bedrooms and family room from the high-rise condominiums directly opposite. At the same time, it makes a lovely private, external and well-lit space that focuses the view towards the park along Crescent Road.

The 1st storey has an open concept with the living, dining and dry kitchen along a very simple rectilinear plan. All the glass sliding doors enclosing this space slide out of view. The master bedroom is at the attic, and has a generous outdoor deck facing the park. At the rear is an open concept bathroom with a landscaped strip and sky-lit bath.
