The Far Sight House by Wallflower Architects is a two-storey home in Singapore, equipped with an attic and accompanying terrace overlooking the valley below.

In order to adhere to the local attic guidelines, the house is comprised of two volumes. The first is a tall, narrow block which holds the master bedroom, study and attic. The second is a wider block, located at the rear of the house, which accommodates two more bedrooms. The home features a multi-layered fa├žade, created through multiple glass doors, windows, vertical timber louvers and a horizontal aluminum sunscreen. These features allow the home owners the ability to control the level of sun, breeze and view they employ at any given time.

Of course, the home's crowning glory is the attic terrace, which boasts panoramic views of the surrounding greenery.
