Dream Spaces - S1E2: Modern Kampong Living
The indigenous kampong house designed for Singapore’s tropical climate has been updated for contemporary living as seen in three modern houses: The Sensible House, House at Braddell and Fade to Green.
High-rise housing may dominate Singapore’s skyline, but its homes have traditionally been more grounded. Dream Spaces brings you access to these remarkable properties, retracing their origins and transformation. Each episode explores a housing type and living ideal — the shophouse, the kampong house, the black and white bungalow, historic mansions as well as multi-generational living — to learn how they have been transformed for modern lifestyles, and continue to influence the shape and form of the Singapore house today.
