A Wabi-Sabi Home in Malaysia, Lush With Greenery

The home of the award-winning DesignTone Interior Practice’s founder and principal Joe Chan fuses the familiarities of a simple Australian verandah house that is in dialogue with Malaysia's tropical climate while borrowing from the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi.

On the ground floor, the living-dining-kitchen-patio-garden appear as a singular space with its functions and spatial qualities changing throughout the day to suit the living behaviour of the family. Living in a tropical environment, determinants of shade, wind, and light form key aspects of the living environment.

“We created a linear patio as a spatial transition between the inside and outside, mediating between the interior and the garden and shading the direct heat and light from the Western sun. Siting at different spots within the house, we experience a tapestry of view, nature, light, and shade,” explains Chan.

An Eco-Conscious House In Singapore

This Singapore house is a fine example of melding style and substance, and is a reminder of what good living is all about. It is the home of jazz singer Miriam Yeung, her husband Tay Yi Chung, and their children.

A generous balcony cantilevers over the car porch, with deep eaves that keep out the rain and sun. Leather, copper and chrome accents throughout the house complement the timber tones.

“During the circuit breaker period last year, we were lucky to have this outdoor patio where we could sit outdoors and work in the shaded area,” says Yeung. “My children also love to put their soft mats there to practice their gymnastics and play or do their art at the table. We have outdoor speakers and nice lights so the four of us sometimes lie on the mats, and enjoy the night sky and music.”
