Upper Aljunied Road is a new residential area of Singapore, composed mainly of rather traditional town houses. This development offers a new concept in response to the demands of Singapore current generation of homebuyers by offering an alternative approach to the architecture. In addition, the developer determined that the construction of all units be completed before they were available for sale. The project offers seven variations of typology in 76 town homes. All homes are two stories high with a sub-basement and attic floor underneath the roof. The project was designed with the underlying idea of a garden accessible to all units; this was achieved by separating the access road from the central garden, which allows each unit to have two front faades. The articulation of the architecture embraces crisp, ultra-modern lines, producing openness and clarity. Overcoming the limitation of the shared walls that generally characterize townhouses, the design incorporates a skylight at the middle portion of the houses to let natural light into areas such as bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, and pantry. An interesting feature of the Singapore building code required that the sub-basement floor incorporate thick concrete walls, strong enough to resist a bomb blast and that the attic floor underneath the roof be connected by a door to the adjacent unit for use as a fire escape route.
