About the book:
‘5 in Five’ presents a captivating collection of five houses, located in India, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and New Zealand. All of them are designed by the Argentinian-born architect Ernesto Bedmar. The co-founder of the Singapore based design practice BEDMaR & SHi has a deep understanding of the histories and building cultures of these Asian-Pacific regions and reinvents them for the contemporary world.
The featured projects demonstrate the flexibility of Bedmar’s trademark tropical architecture and showcase a diverse set of modern forms that resonate deeply with the local landscape and make use of water as a unifying and harmonizing element.
The book contains a wealth of drawings and plans that detail the innovative construction techniques, and the resulting houses are captured in a breathtaking series of photographs (by Albert Lim) showing the use of spaces and materials as well as the spectacular sites on which they sit.
