Sited at Jalan Eunos in the Bedok area, euHabitat is a condominium development that boasts an integrated environment. Inspired by the surrounding landscape, this development is ecologically sensitive. The concept brings together a collection of four different lifestyles, catering to a variety of living arrangements of contemporary families. The four housing typologies are differentiated as: Townhouse, Condominium, Suite and SOHO.
The townhouses are grouped around an expansive pool of water, where the terraces to each townhouse line the edge of the water. The large pool at the doorstep not only creates a pleasant comfort climate, but also reflects the expanse of the sky above it. Here, architecture truly embraces nature. The scenery changes from moment to moment as the sun and clouds pass through the sky.
At the entry level of the condominium, the covered gathering spaces between adjacent buildings are naturally ventilated and densely planted, accessible to the residents at all times.
The walls and windows of the suites are adapted specifically for privacy and sun orientation. The horizontal aluminium louvres shade the glass and visually unify the elevations of these single-bedroom units. The interior is animated by natural light filtering through the folding louvre panels. The façade gently undulates as the panels open and fold, creating a rippled surface of contrasting light and shadow. As a result, it allows the ability to modulate the sun and air, and achieves both privacy and openness.
The open plan of the SOHO apartments is changeable without losing its coherence. Capitalising on the high ceiling, the residents are given the flexibility to individualise their own upper mezzanine space.
Inspired by different aspects of nature, euHabitat becomes a dynamic residential community that addresses the increasing desire to live in harmony with nature. The mix of living units of different sizes and types are distributed throughout the site, offering a variety of conditions to meet each tenant’s needs. Each component opens up its interior to the nature, embracing the water, weather, sunlight and breezes, effectively integrating architecture with the elements.
