Design News: English Gardens come to Singapore, Korean artisanal ceramics and Dyson’s seasonal sales, Home & Design News & Top Stories

Project architect Ben Milbourne of Bild Architecture said the intention of the design was never to blend with the site or be ‘part’ of the landscape. “Instead it is consciously an object in the field, like the classical villa and the local vernacular of the rural shed,” Milbourne said. “The Panopticon House project is a hybrid of modernist and classical rural villa ideals, exploring the house as a figured object versus
