An addition to the Open House II, this nursery was designed and built-in preparation for the arrival of the family’s first grandchild. Building quickly was critical. As the nursery was to be built upon an existing RC slab, a lightweight steel structure was chosen. Pre-fabricated steel members were also easier to transport to site for installation compared to bringing in a cement mixer.

The structure is a lightweight steel, prefabricated for easier transportation and installation, and built on an existing RC slab roof. The cool and dark steel-clad exterior – meant to look like an extension of the existing roof – is contrasted by the warm timber hues and white marble accents of its interior.

The completion of the nursery becomes a part to the Open House anthology, which also includes the very first renovation – Open House I, subsequently the kitchen extension, a bar store-cum-greenhouse, and a dog house.
