The very best architects are masters of illusion, turning expansive spaces into cozy rooms and cramped corners into spacious domestic settings. The 36 BTrd House in Singapore leaves the mark of a truly talented team of designers who have turned a narrow terrace townhouse into a bright and broad domicile.

To accomplish this, DP Architects had to make the most of the access this residence could have to natural light. This involved nearly clearing the facade of any obstructive structure to allow the sun's light and fresh air to pour inside. Shelter and privacy are maintained with the installation of sliding glass doors and blind-like brise-soleils. Open-concept floor plans with transparent walls around a delicate industrial staircase foster this environment of capaciousness within the 36 BTrd House.
