A Wave of Honey-Coloured Light, an Architectural Music Box, Singapore

studioMilou’s team is working on the final aspects of this beautiful multi-generational home in one of Singapore’s finest streets. Inter-connecting  residential elements are set on a slope and interspersed among spacious landscaped gardens, while a stunning triple volume pavilion fronts the street. By day, its meticulously designed metal and glass walls blend easily into the thick foliage and streetscape. By night, the pavilion becomes luminous with honey-coloured light emanating from a wave of over 1000 hand-crafted Bohemian crystal cylinders, each unique, composing the bespoke chandelier.  When any piece is gently moved against another, a gamelan-like chiming is set off, creating a spectacular, floating instrument in what becomes an ‘architectural musical box.’
