The Winged House is designed by K2LD Architects in Singapore and inspired by the traditional Malay architecture. The residence is split into two adjacent forms, with a pair of trapeziums which mark the boundaries of the garden area. It is an interesting piece as seen from the architectural point of view.

This strange structure, like a huge arrow flying down to the earth, offers an incredible view over the garden, integrating it into the living space. The interesting and provocative roof frames the terrace, the swimming pool and the whole mass of green landscape surrounding the house. The roof is the main attraction of the house and the structure figures a response to the tropical context of Singapore. But the house is a huge relaxation place, inviting people to enjoy outdoors, to enjoy the rainy days or to practice some physical exercises for strengthening their power. The main materials invested in the house are wood, stone and marble. Their combination matches perfectly into an attempt of creating a whole from the separated parts of the building. There are floor to ceiling glass windows allowing green to enter the house.

The Winged House attracts by its strange architecture and it is an ideal place for leisure and relaxation.
