House tour: A two-storey terrace house combines an old structure with new life

Breathing new life into an old structure is challenging, but not impossible. This architecture studio worked innovations into a home design to create practical stylish solutions and stylish surprises.

When homeowners James Tan and his wife acquired this two-storey corner terrace house, instead of tearing down the structure, they decided to preserve the 30 year old building and work on additions and alteration works to enhance the article and its functionality.

The couple engaged architect William Ng and Kho Keguang of Studio Wills + Architects, and their brief was to have a three-bedroom house with a sheltered car porch, a pared-down facade, as well as an additional level for a subtly unusual element.
