The intention of the house’s design is to define and blur the visual threshold between the public and private areas of the house. The transparency of the house decreases in ascending order as per their functional requirements. Their surfaces clearly express their openness of the daily living habits and rituals.

Behind the glass wall is a row of bamboo for screening. It is the foreground for the floating golden mesh and serves as a backdrop for the glass box on the ground level.The middle box is the main feature of the house, screened in varying porosity of golden mesh. This golden mesh acts as a light veil over the private glassed areas of the second story. During the night, the screen dissolves and unveils the events within the house when the house is lit. The attic is conceived as being an opaque box clad in aluminum panels that create monolithic sense of tranquility and yet not appearing to be heavy.

This calls for a rethinking of compartmentalization and access spaces. Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallThe living/dining/family spaces are all combined into a large open space. The reduction of the walls to compartmentalize the spaces allows for flexibility. There are no corridors; the passageways are widened to become a usable space. The partition walls between rooms allow for change of use.

The boxes stacked on each other being a solution to the functional requirements is also inevitably the expression of the building form.Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham HallProject gallerySee allShow lessWuxi Elementary School Re-Design / Atelier XÜKArticlesUjpalota Main Square / HMS-PlanArticles Share The Golden Box / K2Ld ArchitectsSave this projectSaveThe Golden Box / K2Ld Architects The Golden Box / K2Ld Architects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/154858/the-golden-box-k2ld-architects Clipboard Save this picture!© Patrick Bingham Hall+ 7 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/154858/the-golden-box-k2ld-architects Clipboard Architects: K2Ld Architects Photographs CopyAbout this officeK2Ld ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSingaporePublished on August 01, 2011Cite: “The Golden Box / K2Ld Architects” 01 Aug 2011.
