Openly Outdoor Architecture

Wallflower Architecture Perfects an Open Floorplan with Six Ramsgate

— January 25, 2010 — Art & Design
Six Ramsgate is a home designed by Wallflower Architecture located in Singapore. According to Fresh Home, the owner wanted as open a home as possible. (While still being safely enclosed, that is. He’s rich, not crazy.) The result is a spectacularly beautiful design that incorporate the outdoor areas into the overall design. The glass walls at some points make the home seem to not be enclosed at all, as when a chandelier in the dining room appears to actually be in the courtyard.

Abundant fences mean that Six Ramsgate is in fact not *so* open, but Wallflower Architecture did admirable work to convince the eye otherwise.
Trend Themes
1. Open Floorplan Integration - Opportunities for creating seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces, blurring the boundaries of traditional architecture to create open and inviting designs.
2. Indoor-outdoor Connectivity - Incorporating ample glass walls and other architectural elements to blend the interior and exterior spaces, allowing for a harmonious connection with nature.
3. Illusion of Boundlessness - Employing design techniques that create an illusion of openness and expansiveness, such as incorporating courtyard elements into the interior or using transparent materials to erase physical barriers.
Industry Implications
1. Residential Architecture - Opportunities for architects to innovate in home design by incorporating open floorplans and seamless integration with outdoor spaces to enhance living experiences and foster a stronger connection with nature.
2. Hospitality Architecture - Hotels and resorts can explore innovative architectural designs that create an immersive experience for guests by integrating outdoor areas, blurring the lines between interior and exterior spaces, and ensuring a seamless and harmonious connection with nature.
3. Commercial Architecture - Opportunities for architects and designers to revolutionize commercial spaces by incorporating open floorplans, abundant natural light, and the illusion of boundless spaces to elevate work environments, enhance productivity, and attract customers
