Designed by Robert Kolenik and his team, this luxurious villa is a truly “eco chic eye-candy for extremely comfortable living”. With the fully trust from the owner of the villa, Robert Kolenik and his team successfully transformed this villa into yet another successful eco chic design project. You can see the impressive details everywhere in this place. Take the living room as example, the grand, custom-made couch by Kolenik measuring 6.5m in length, together with a pivoting door from Kolenik’s own Bo’dor collection. The kitchen is simply fantastic – the illuminated tabletop is supported by nothing but a lychee tree trunk. The best part of this villa that embodies the home spa experience and boasts twin lit sinks in black onyx. Alough it is a bit weird to place the bathtub right in front of sink… But anyway, this is definitely incredible place to live.

Since there is litter wind in Singapore, the architecture took advantage of its hilltop position and opens up the building plan to make the most of the prevailing breezes. Not only is nature being allowed inside, it is a large part of the building’s aesthetics. Moreover, to relatively dense urban environment of Singapore, designer tried to draw nature in as much as possible – rooftop grass lawn, in-house plant and beautiful garden. Such a nice and fresh place for living!
This unusual roof park house is located at a vacant lot with a very steep down-slope from the street in Los Angeles. Due to its location and requirement of a parking lot for two cars, Anonymous Architects came up with a daring architecture concept – put the parking lot on top of the living spaces and create an open-air “garage”. It is a logical design due to the steep terrain. With the house floating over the hillside, the structure successfully reduces the amount of foundation required. It also means the only way to access the house is over the bridge, which brings a truly a unusual floating structure. Really smart and daring architecture design.
