Bewboc House: This Terrace House In KL Is A Concrete Masterpiece And A Minimalist’s Dream

Whether it comes to style or architecture, we can all agree that sometimes, less isΒ more. Are you a fan of minimalism? If you are, you have to take a good look at this suburban terrace house in Kuala Lumpur. Titled the Bewboc House – this house is a work of art and proves that less is the way to go for a tranquil space in a bustling city like KL. Designed by Fabian Tan, this house is also one of many stunning works from the local architect.

Are you wondering how large slabs of plain concrete can look stunning? Well, think again because Fabian Tan has managed to incorporate a perfect balance between concrete and nature in designing the Bewboc House. At first look, you wouldn’t expect this structure to be a  suburban terrace house, much less an actual home for a family but it is. In fact, the family requested for a structural design with minimal intervention. And, what they got was a newly-built house that is spacious, airy, and comfortable.

According to the architect Fabian Tan, the approach in designing this house was to re-imagine a form befitting a corner lot and to re-purpose the living spaces on ground level. The concrete finish from floor to ceiling appears to highlight the continuous extension of the structure’s interior. Plus, the two large doors that open up to a garden of green provides an immediate calm closeness to nature.

If the ground level of the house didn’t impress your eyes enough, the upper floor definitely will. It’s completely ingenious because the spaces are layered, creating a hierarchy of space. There is a corner for lounging, a work area that overlooks the living spaces and adjacent, and we’re not even at the best bit yet. The upper floor also features a lovely open balcony, that is connected through a bridge to the master bedroom.
