BACHELOR PAD OF THE WEEK:: 45 FABER PARK
The connection of living and dining space to the outdoor lawn and pool, creates an amazing place for entertaining

Thick travertine stone walls give the sense of a sauna experience to the bathroom.
45 Faber Park by Ong&Ong Architects, is not only visually pleasing, but it is also earth friendly, or sustainable architecture. The wide selection of materials used in the composition of the home create diversity within each space. Travertine stone, wood, glass, concrete and white walls are all used on multiple surfaces throughout the home. This diversity of materials and placement of rooms suggests fluidity from space to space. Since all the rooms are positioned in the dark block on the second floor, the first and basement floors become common spaces for entertainment and relaxation. My favorite feature is the connection of the living and dining rooms to the pool and green space (picture 2&3), but there are just too many amazing features about this home, not to mention it is located in Singapore.
