The north and south facades are treated with timber screens and their contribution is multifold. They are privacy filters for the bedrooms and are the first layer of glare and solar heat reduction to the spaces behind. The timber fins of the screen can also be angled so as to catch a breeze or to increase privacy as and when needed.
The first storey is designed to be visually expansive and uncluttered and encourages the intermingling of space, whether you move through the garden, living or dining areas.
The perceived spatial boundary is not architecturally delineated in a traditional sense, but by a soldier-line of narrow polyalthia trees along the boundaries of the site. However, architecturally, the trees provide a level of purpose no man-made wall is able to. It shields the house from neighbouring windows but its narrow footprint still allows sun to reach the grass, while freeing up space on the lawn for play and parties.
What may not seem so obvious though is that the tines of polyalthias are literally evaporative fingers, combing the air of some of its heat each time the wind blows. The swimming pool is placed centrally between garden and living both as a focal centre and also as a central evaporative cooling surface.

Australian swimwear label Seafolly has opened its first international flagship store in Singapore as part of a wider expansion strategy for the brand.
The Singapore outlet, which is located within the retail capital city of Wisma Atria, marks the first of many global stand-alone stores for the swimwear giant, with plans to expand to the US and UK markets before the end of the year.
It was the right time for the label to expand internationally and Singapore was the perfect place for the global debut. The demand for their products in this region is at an all time high. Singapore has a 12-month summer season with swimwear weather all year round, and therefore they couldn’t think of a more fitting city to launch their first international flagship store.
The Singapore outlet stocks the entire Seafolly range, including Ladies, Kids and Limited Edition with price points in line with Seafolly’s Australian prices.
The layout and concept, like the outlets to follow, is replicative of the label's Australian stores, featuring chic wooden floorboards and clean linear design to covey an “Australian beach feel”.
Seafolly have also signed on to appear at landmark trade shows in Paris and Miami throughout July 2011, and the brand will roll out its 2011 campaign and catalogue nationally on July 1.
The label, which has previously worked with Jessica Hart, Samantha Harris, Miranda Kerr and Catherine McNeil as Seafolly ambassadors, recently signed Australian supermodel Sarah Stephens as the new face of the label for spring/summer 2011.
Stephens will star in the 2011 Seafolly catalogue, shot on location on the Maldivian Islands, as part of the campaign and model the latest collection, which the brand describes as its “most sophisticated collection to date”. Stephens is deemed to be the right fit for the label and the fresh Seafolly collection.
Sarah embodies Seafolly and they are over the moon to be able to showcase the expanding D cup market and how D cups CAN be stylish, sexy and fashion forward.”

Baby Spa's vision is to be a renowned organization at the leading edge of Baby Training Centre to meet young parents' aspirations. They intend to improve each baby’s physical growth and mental development in the critical stage of child’s life. They carry out this mission through the innovative BabySpa System of strengthening and stimulating.
Their BabySpa System is a warm water-based method of strengthening and stimulating babies to improve their physical growth and mental development. At birth, the baby’s brain has little information about how to move on the floor because he/she has never had that experience. However, the baby already has seven months of information about how it feels to move in an aqueous environment. In this environment the neonate’s body is buoyant and all the baby’s sensory pathways are developing; vision, hearing, feeling, taste and smell sensation. If newborns don’t use their natural ability, it may be lost. For this reason, it is very important that they have the opportunity to swim from the very first day of life or as soon as possible. Providing an opportunity for your baby to move in the water is an ideal way to develop not only a stronger body, but a better brain.
Their BabySpa System is very similar to Hydrotherapy which has been recognized as beneficial since the dawn of civilization that improves lung capacity and strengthens extremities (Arms/Hands/Fingers and Legs/Feet/Toes). Hydrotherapy studies document beneficial effects enhancing physical and mental development, increasing weight gain that can be considered as an adjunct to traditional treatment strategies. Especially For pre-mature, autism, cerebral palsy.
