I felt obliged to share some pictures even if it is nowadays an established design in the Global world of Boat (not only with power but as well in sailing!!). But I think the design is so unique and so powerful with these edges, with a bit of the Lamborgini design, make Wally a so unique and recognizable Brand. It is always a pleasure to see these pictures that awake emotions….

This house is located on a new housing estate on the island of Sentosa adjacent to Singapore. The plots are not large and neighbouring buildings are built close to the sides of each house.
Thus our strategy was to build a solid wall to each side neighbor to provide privacy where possible, while creating a central light and stair well which would funnel the sea breeze through the centre of the building. The front and rear of the building meanwhile, terrace back allowing each storey to have visual or actual access to greenery.
The intention was to try to allow each roof garden provided a base for the storey above allowing the layered effect to make each storey feel like it was a single storey dwelling sitting in a garden…..as much as we could do in the close confines of sentosa island and with such a large building!!
