House tour: A thoughtfully-designed home as befits a multi-generational family

A thoughtful design influenced by the needs of a multi-generational family makes this home layout meaningful, yet functional. Delve beyond the exterior to uncover the intricacies that lie within.

Businessman Michael Mun, his wife, and their three sons have been living in this property for over two decades, during which the family grew in size, with the sons starting their own families. “Despite the size of the land, the old house had a built-up area of only about 6,000 sq ft, and just five bedrooms. The layout was also not ideal and natural ventilation and light were limited,” says Michael. This prompted him to redevelop the home to better accommodate the needs of the extended household.

The use of raw concrete creates a unique architectural expression not commonly seen in homes locally.
