Michael Cu Fua leads two lives—literally. The Filipino-born, University of Santo Tomas-educated architect shuttles between Manila and his adopted country Singapore juggling multiple projects as director of international design firm ONG&ONG, while managing to create artwork and launching exhibits on the side. 

Prior to joining ONG&ONG in 2014, Michael ran his own practice in Singapore, working on high-profile projects such as designing the interiors for the residence of Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Madame Ho Ching in 2000. But in spite of these projects, Michael loves to go back to designing residences for ordinary citizens and families, like this house on Brockhampton Drive.

The architect managed to design a house that maximized every bit of the 259sqm lot area, creating a multilevel structure that is equal parts sleek and modern, and warm and cozy. “Brockhampton Drive is located in Serangoon Gardens Estate…a private residential estate in Singapore,” says Michael, noting that it is one of the most ideal locations for family homes. “The estate was built to house the British officers based in Singapore. It was upgraded in 2001 as part of the Singapore Government's plan to improve the older private housing estates…open roadside drains were covered up, it has new streetlights and road signs, and the parks were also upgraded.”

Check out the photos below to see how well-articulated the spaces are in this modern minimalist marvel:
