Modern Swettenham House Design Architecture

This house at Swettenham Green is a exclusive residence located off Holland Road. The architecture of this house is unique because it embraces modern design elements by preserving the old. The main entrance block is a conserved single storey British colonial house that connects to new modern architectural house with a glass block.The use of horizontal slatted metal and marble enables a subtle modification of light and shadow.It is this sensitive modulation of the threshold between the inside and the outside that raise this project beyond the simple act of preservation of the old and new.
