Probably the most prolific architect in Sentosa Cove

The owners’ penchant for travel has resulted in an eclectic collection of antique and modern pieces in different spaces, including a 7m-long antique table with matching Nakashima chairs juxtaposed against a very modern kitchen. A floor-to-ceiling library reflects the owner’s career and love, with her most treasured tomes perched atop, accessible only by climbing the attached ladder.

Upstairs, the master bedroom overlooks stunning views of the golf course. Children have cozy rooms with bold sculptural ceilings dressed in wood veneers, including one with a double-height space where they can play in a mezzanine loft. A concealed doorway between the boy’s and girl’s bedrooms adds an element of fun, with quirky furnishings such as cloud lamps set against a starry headboard wall. When owners need a bit of respite from the hustle and bustle of life, they can retreat to the attic, which has a wellness area with sauna, spa and ice bath, as well as a a fun playroom for children.

Shand is happy to have a free hand in the design process, not only for No. 88, but for others as well. In the case of another house at No. 2, the owners trusted the team of architects so much that they only appeared on site twice: when they first commissioned Shand and when they moved in.
