What Houzz contributors are saying:

Chiquit Brammall added this to Houzz Tour: This House Celebrates its Coastal Location With More Water
Shand, who’s been based in Singapore for over 20 years, and is quite familiar with its climate and terrain, says: “Very careful attention must be paid to the materials used, due to the coastal location. The harsh sun, combined with salt sea air can cause rapid deterioration of materials if not specified carefully. We are not restricted to marine treated materials, but any materials that are subject to rain and sun should be of marine grade. We still use teak on the external envelope, but this is under cover, and not subject to rain. Steel must be hot dipped galvanised. Stainless steel must be the highest grade – Grade 316; aluminium should be fluorocarbon coated. It’s evident that the trend of off-form concrete in Singapore, and especially Senotsa Cove, has not been successful when exposed to the elements, with very rapid deterioration of the surface, resulting in bad staining, mould growth, and severe cracking.”
