A terrace house in Singapore with upcycled Javanese
windows and kampung vibes

Like kampung ดาวน์โหลด slotxo ios houses of yesteryear, this remodelled two-storey
inter-terrace house is open, inviting and often filled with chatter and laughter as
homeowner Sandra Heng’s family and friends gather.

When homeowner Sandra Heng first saw her two-storey home, it was not love at
first sight. The 46-year-old inter-terrace building lacked natural light and ventilation
in many parts and didn’t look inviting.

Today, sunlight permeates the home in all corners and the open living and dining
space with a swing reverberates with a playful kampung vibe. On weekends,
there’s lively chatter and laughter as Heng conducts free pilates workshops for
friends in a specially constructed 656 sq ft studio.

Bringing light into the house was one of architect Goy Zhenru’s first priorities
when she was tasked to transform the space, which won a Gold Award in Best
Residential Design (Private Houses) at the 2018/2019 IDSA International Design
Excellence Awards (IDEA).

“The first intervention we did was to remove half of the attic and to create a more
permeable flow between the front and the back. The second intervention was to
actually open up a skylight so it allows for natural sunlight to come into the house,”
shared Goy, who is one of Heng’s pilates students.

“This naturally created a courtyard for this long intermediate terrace, which is
the heart and soul for the family right now.” Removing the attic also exposed
the original wood details of the ceilings, and Heng and her parents now spend
***spam*** of their time relaxing in the courtyard, while soaking in the charm of
a bygone era.

Another bold modification was moving the kitchen to the front of the house.
This open-concept space is Heng’s favourite spot where she does her work
and reading. She also cooks and bakes while chatting with friends at the island
counter.
