Designed by Desai Chia Architecture in collaborating with this dramatic contemporary residence instantly grabs your attention with the 20-foot-long cantilevered upper level and a charred wood exterior that dubbed ‘shou sugi ban’. The dark exterior lets the home standout visually even while ensuring that it melts away into darkness after sunset.

Apart from the lovely views that it offers the mezzanine level of the house is a space-saver with a comfortable master suite on one end and a spacious home office on the other. With the series of sliding glass doors windows and glazed walls welcoming in ample natural light there is never a dull corner here!
