Welcome to a gallery featuring the fantastic “Lines of Light” home by HYLA Architects.
HYLA Architects is based in Singapore, and their designs emphasize detail and are executed with finesse. They work with their clients closely with a determination to deliver exactly what their client wants and needs. The homes they create are timeless and unique.
This home in particular is a unique terrace-style home on a corner lot. To preserve the client’s privacy, the entire length of the home on the side facing the street is covered by a slatted timber screen that serves its intended purpose, but still allows light to filter through the extensive windows.
The spacious living room is located on the open-concept main floor and features a two-story bookcase. The home also features cantilevered stairs and an attic.
We hope you’ll enjoy this truly unique terrace home full of glass, light, and clean lines.
The exterior of the home from the front, showing the fenced in yard and the asymmetrical shape of the home. This angle also allows us to get a view of the privacy screen as it would look from the inside.
A close-up of the home’s front exterior featuring the extensive windows in varying shapes. This home almost seems to be made up of mostly glass.
An exterior shot from the street corner, showing the multiple railings and fences around the home. Lush landscaping and trees peek out from behind the concrete wall.
The privacy screen as shown from the corner. The screen’s delicate, asymmetrical wooden construction makes it a fantastic feature of this home’s architecture and design, rather than an eyesore.
A view from across the street at the home, showing the extent of the privacy screen. The lower half of the home is not covered by the screen, because the concrete fence and lush landscaping provide their own screening effect.
The home’s entryway opens up immediately into the cantilevered “floating” staircase with glass sides and a wooden railing. A narrow frosted glass door opens up into a closet area. Along the left wall, an arrangement of family photographs welcomes visitors into the home with smiles.
A view from the first stair landing up the second set of stairs that lead to the third floor. Visible behind the stairs is the second floor, which has to be accessed via other rooms on the same floor.
The foyer opens to the right into the main floor living room and sun room. From the living room we can see the three different floorings that designate each space: white tile for the foyer, light hardwood in the living room, and rich hardwood with red tones in the sunroom.
A view of the lengthy living room with floor-to-ceiling windows and cathedral ceilings. At the back of the space is the sleek, small kitchen in white and rich wood. To the right is a built-in bookcase with shelves of varying heights and sizes and pull-out drawers beneath.
The built-in bookshelves continue on the second floor, and can be seen from the main level through the glass balustrades of the upstairs hallway. The sunroom off the front of the living room opens up to the front yard and can be fully opened to let the breeze roll directly into the living room.
This shot of the living room and sunroom from the entrance to the space shows the landscaping just outside with massive, lush foliage that nearly blocks out the apartment complex across the street.
Behind the living room is a small dining room with a white and natural light wood table directly adjacent to the minimalist kitchen.
The modestly sized kitchen has tons of counter space and lower cabinet storage. The back wall is in a rich red-toned wood with a stripe of charcoal tile. Small accents of green bring the lush outdoors into this area.
One of the upstairs bathrooms in natural wood and sandy tile with an enclosed soaking tub between black pillars. Leafy greenery makes its way into this minimalist bathroom via the houseplants and ground cover near the bathtub.
Another view of the above bathroom from the opposite angle. The white vessel sink is an elegant addition to the segmented mirror and chromed fixtures.
The home also features a small home office in pristine white and light wood. Like the bathroom, landscaping on the outside terrace is visible just outside one of the large windows.
A close up on the minimalist white desk with multiple pull-out drawers. The glass-paneled door to the terrace can be opened to let a cool or warm breeze in while working.
A more modern bathroom with none of the natural features in the previous bathroom. The floor-to-ceiling blue glass tile behind the floating vanity are a stark contrast to the pristine while floors, vanity, and the three other walls. A floor-to-ceiling window in the shower stall allows the terrace to be enjoyed from behind the privacy screen.
Another wholly unique bathroom in this home with pink stone tile and sandy tile everywhere else. The wooden vessel sink with a chrome faucet is only a few steps away from the open shower.
A view of the first floor from the fenced in front yard looking through the sunroom and living room to the dining room and kitchen beyond.
