Architecture Wednesday

I find that I just love a house in the middle of nowhere, but that I also want a house right in the middle of things.
I'd like a modern loft, please, with a beautiful yard for the animals.
Is that too much to ask?
Apparently it isn't for the Formwerkz Architects.
They designed this home in the center of Singapore, in a very busy district, and then worked out a plan to incorporate the owner’s desire to see a garden near his home. Not an easy task for a slipper of a lot on which to build.
So the architects designed the house with  several levels, each with it's own garden space. And they also added a vertical plant wall to bring the green front and center. There are outdoor entertaining areas at every level, and yet the interiors have a modern, open plan with a central staircase zigzagging its way to the top. 
So, in Singapore, at any rate, you can have the best of both worlds.

Lofts are awesome. The open space above the living room and other places in the home makes them seem bigger than they are. I'm redesigning the one I have in The Sims 2 so it's a little bit bigger and can accommodate a game room in the first floor behind the garage.

Glass wall in the bathroom? Not for me! Otherwise, I love this place!
