“Spaces that evoke emotion and spirituality–I think that’s what good architecture is all about,” said architect Edmund Ng, principal of Edmund Ng Architects. His clean designs and artistic sensibilities can be seen in projects built in Singapore and abroad.
Recently, Ng took on a project of particular significance: his own home. Using the narrow width of the land plot to his advantage, Ng deconstructed rooms and integrated functions to create a unique space.
“It’s a house that is my work of art,” said Ng, an art lover who has been married for seven years to Jazz Chong, an art collector and founder of gallery Ode to Art. “Of course, it’s an extension of ourselves. Interestingly, there was no discussion [with my wife] about how the house should look like.”
