Formwerkz Architects completed the design and development for Diamond House, a daring family residence located along Cove Drive in Sentosa, Singapore. According to the architects, the project’s unusual geometry is derived from “negotiating with the planning parameters imposed on the neighborhood and the desire to simplify the building form. The front and side facades are pared down with openings strategically position to allow optimal daylighting with minimum compromise in privacy. The sloping walls at the corners allow for a smaller footprint while expanding the spatial volume at upper levels”. Iron wood, oak and travertine were the main materials employed in the building process.

Respecting the inhabitants’ need for privacy, the Diamond House took on a multi-faceted shape, hiding most interiors located in close proximity to the street and neighboring houses. The imposing rooms open up towards a swimming pool, a man-made lake and gardens. Any thoughts on this unusual architecture approach?

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
