We live in a time where smart phones and tablets are in everyone’s hands and multitasking is the normal way of life. Influenced from the client’s multitasking lifestyle, a diverse set of requirements developed for a new home. The clients, one of whom is the owner of a public relations company, requested that multiple activities could take place throughout the house without interruption; a dinner party could take place while simultaneously entertaining a group of children, or guests could come and go without disturbing the rest of the family.

Back in 2001, the Owner, Mr Adrian Tan, commissioned Aamer to design his house(s) at No 42. There a large bungalow plot was divided into two to accommodate separate but identical houses which won the prestigious Singapore Institute of Architects’ Design Award in 2004. Some ten years later Adrian acquired the plot next door, No 40, with the intention of building another home and thus having three houses; one for themselves and one for each of their two grown up sons with their future families.
