Merryn Road 40A by Aamer Taher

Today we are showcasing a house built in 2012 by Aamer Architects. Aamer Taher is a Singapore-based architect, who studied at London's AA, before returning to Singapore. He is a well-known architect in the Far East, having designed homes and commercial buildings in Singapore, Malaysia and China amongst others. Back in 2001, the owner of the property under Merryn Road 42 commissioned Aamer Architects to build two identical houses, one for the parents and one for their grown-up son. The house under Merryn Road 40A is an extension of this concept, as the owner managed to acquire the plot right next to the original. The house was built for the family's second son, completing the three-house private block.

The garden, and greenery in general played a major part in the conception of the house. The owner specifically requested a garden courtyard and a koi pond, thus the swimming pool was placed on top of the building. The natural dark timber surfaces complement the lush flora of the property, with marble and granite lending mass and density to the structure. There is a terrace in close proximity to the plantlife, with transparent glass protecting it from rain, while also providing adequate levels of illumination.

The interior operates with shades of white and light beige, providing contrast with the dark granite floors.

While the aforementioned houses under number 42 featured trees growing through wooden balconies, the extreme vertical qualities of the garden under 42 are provided by creeper plants, climbing over the swimming pool on timber trellises.
