An architectural masterpiece stands out from the pitch roofed tropical houses of Singapore – the amazing Villa Alba.In his attempt to build a remarkable mansion, with a distinctive form, Massimo Mercurio, creative director of Mercurio Design Lab, declared: “This simple design gesture of a sunrise on the horizon is quite an unusual solution for the Singapore architectural scene, but is an appropriate theme for the lakefront villa.
”In spite of its unusual design, Villa Alba is perfectly suitable for the tropical island landscape that surrounds it. Moreover, everything that is related to this unique building has a touch of naturalness, from the color palette – a gradation of tones inspired from the concept of sunrise to the natural materials, the preservation of Feng Shui requirements and of the environment.
For all these reasons, there is no wonder the the project was lauded at the recent Asia-Pacific Property Awards 2013.
