This residential development in Singapore combines timber, steel and glass with vegetation and water features to create two dynamic living spaces that bring the jungle to a tiny urban setting. The Paterson 3 building, designed by AR43 Architects, has a beautiful courtyard sheltered by a large cantilevered green roof and an open plan layout wrapped in vertical gardens that create a feeling of being lost in the wilderness from the comfort of home.
The building is located within a walking distance to a large boulevard, which encompasses Singapore’s retail and entertainment hub. It features two corner terrace units, the architecture of which blurs the line between the interior and exterior space. Timber cladding, panoramic glass surfaces and metal elements create a dynamic facade dominated by defined lines.
The courtyard is sheltered by a large overhang which also allows natural light to reach the playful outdoor space designed to feature a diversity of elements: stepping stones, bridge-connections and green patches and a green wall that runs along the party wall.
