Best Constructed Private Residence
About the project
Nestled on the tranquil eastern coast of Sentosa Island, Sentosa Cove, the desired architectural style for Villa Mistral is to embody the seafront surrounding. The structure must enhance ambience to the neighbourhood, at the same time, has to be iconic. In addition, the brief called for optimal use of natural materials, sustainable strategies, and to observe fengshui requirements.
Named after the seasonal strong, northwesterly wind that blows across the Mediterranean, Mistral is like a sleek yacht swathed in metallic white. The structural elements are expressed externally and internally, simultaneously referencing a boat and communicating the sense of a strong forward thrust. Everything inside is designed to be representative of a boat.
With a seaside theme and lifestyle that was gravitating around the area, Mistral displays an island character that makes it stand out from the rest of the pitched roof houses in the vicinity. Moreover, it reflects fengshui, harmonising wind and water.
