Situated in Eastern Singapore amongst traditional shop houses and family homes, 80ADR House is part of a tide of renewal that ebbs slowly into the island’s older neighbourhoods.

About 80ADR House

An Inviting Entrance

A wood-strip gate unveils a pebble driveway, speckled with grain. Alongside, a garden flaunts a transplanted frangipani tree.

Contemporary Interiors with a Classic Touch

Inside, oak flooring in herringbone patterns graces the living area. The open layout seamlessly merges with a modern kitchen. Classic tiles and a wet kitchen persist, accented by bronze hues throughout.

Architectural Ingenuity

Architects preserved 80ADR-House’s low-rise charm. They enhanced interior height by removing the second floor’s center, introducing thick glass panels.

Spacious Upper Floors

Two bedrooms nestle at the house’s rear. A foyer introduces a third bedroom and balcony, overlooking the street. An intricate breeze blocks façade captivates, leading to a luminous skylight. Original white brick walls contrast with a mesh-lined stairwell.

Masterful Bedroom Design

The master bedroom offers stunning garden and neighborhood views. An innovative mirror system separates the bedroom from its bathroom and wardrobe. Sliding doors and hexagon-cut marble floors define the expansive bathroom.

Rooftop Elegance

Adjacent to the master bedroom lies a balcony. Here, a black spiral staircase climbs to a new rooftop, showcasing architectural flexibility.
