Brass Ensemble

This bungalow in Sentosa Cove presents a simple and subtle statement along Cove Way. Hidden behind a bamboo planting screen, the first storey is transparent ­– privacy being provided by a series of horizontal timber blinds. These complement the oxidised brass roof that folds to become the front façade and also the canopy and car porch in one dynamic sweep. The living, dining and dry kitchen open across a covered timber terrace and an infinity lap pool. This maximises the entertainment possibilities at the first storey for the occupants. The pool deck then cascades to a lower terrace level, before connecting to the seawall with its future yacht mooring on the water. A unique stair structure clad in timber connects the three levels. The master bathroom utilises a barrel vaulted roof space and an oval skylight to create an interplay of light and shade. At the attic, the guest bathroom is seen as an extension of a luxe spa bath opening out onto a pebble garden on the roof terrace.
