Inside A Beautiful Secret Garden Landed Home Retreat By A Father-Son Architect Duo

Inside A Beautiful Secret Garden Landed Home Retreat By A Father-Son Architect Duo

This week, we visit a lush landed home located in the east, which has been a family home for 30 years. The home originally had just 2 bedrooms, living, dining and a utility room. The father and son duo, Marcus and Mohan, are both architects and gradually renovated the home to fit the family’s needs over time which includes a new family area as well as a study room.

Over these 30 years, the home has been filled with art, ceramic works and collectibles made or collected by the family, creating a very personal space. The family also chose to build around a large tree that was on the property instead of removing it, which ultimately became the relaxing corner in their entertainment room. Due to the west-facing of the home, the family also cleverly took advantage of the foliage by using weights to grow it sideways. These bent trees and plants then then acted as a natural barrier from the sun, and creates a nice effect of the light flowing into the home.

We really like the overall open and natural feel to the space, almost as if the home was in nature. It’s a huge contrast to the today’s modern, yet arguably cold feel that many landed homes go for. It’s a breath of fresh air to come home to such a lush home, especially in an urban setting like Singapore. We’re also absolutely riveted to see how much of the family’s warmth can be felt in the home.

  14. PurpleBerry Celesté Arts on October 22, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Let us know the name of that cascading plant @2:38-2:42….

  15. Handy Kamal on October 22, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    While I love the design and the vibes, I finally gave up a house like this because I don’t have time to tend the garden. You need a gardener or house resident with extra time to tend it. Not to mention the bugs and the critters that hide behind the greens. There were mosquitos, fruit flies, frogs, lizards, geckos and even a little snake which I didn’t know how they got in the first place. I finally gave up, removed most of the plants, and hardened the ground. How do you manage the gardens anyway?

    It’s so lovely to see a home filled with nature and memories of over 30 years from a family! Which part of this home is your favourite? Share your thoughts below!

  21. Pendekar Bayangan on October 22, 2022 at 8:46 pm

  22. Max TT on October 22, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Amazing family. That house is alot of work though, wonder in they have gardener’s or landscapers to assist with maintenance & up keep of the foliage.

  23. Cindy Pranata on October 22, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    One of the most beautiful homes I’ve seen in Singapore! 😍 Question – how do you deal with the mosquitos which are inevitable cuz of the greneery?

  24. Aarthan Arumugam on October 22, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Watching this video felt like watching a family Disney Pixar movie in non animated form

  25. ShMiEl on October 22, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    💚

  26. J NotinNYCanymore on October 22, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    The true strength of this family are their shared interests and clear affection for each other. (But what about mosquitoes????)

  27. Khoon Ng on October 22, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    I love every part of the house but was wondering if it will attract mosquitoes come evening time.

  28. NF Raelynn on October 22, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    where was this? wish can meet them ☺️

    This whole video is awesome but the most attractive points I see is the relationship the father & son have. It is so beautiful & so peaceful. I never had that kind of relationship with my father & hope we can go to that direction someday.

    The respectful from both sides are shown & how much of loves are poured in the house. Oh i need to learn so much more

  29. Karen on October 22, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Oh my this is beautiful

  31. Starlight Mckennah on October 22, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Are bugs an issue? 🐛

  32. Kaiser Chief on October 22, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    When I imagine my living quarters, this is close to what I imagine. Only difference is mine is lodged within the mountains also surrounded by waterfalls. ❤

  33. Nick Carter on October 22, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    Everyone talking about the house but the other protagonist here is nature, just imagine this house without all these wonderful trees and plants… truly just as important of a design element than any other
