    Default A Singapore beach house

    Stephen Fisher, a banker with J.P. Morgan in Singapore, missed the outdoor lifestyle in his native Australia, and asked his architect for a house that embraced the tropical climate. It consists of two connected glass-and-wood pavilions — one for living, the other for sleeping — surrounding an infinity pool. It was designed so that residents could “have a view of the ocean from every room,” Mr. Fisher said.








    A five-inch-thick acrylic wall in a basement room offers underwater views of the pool. UFO loveseats by Cellini were chosen for their colors, to “inject a bit of fun,” Mr. Fisher said. “White would have been too sterile.”

    I love it. I'd kill for that boomerang sofa. I love the underwater sitting room too.

    Love it. Some of the furniture is a little too Grimm Meets Jetsons but otherwise it's fab. The pool is COOL. It would have cost trillions.

    Love the sofa - except would like a different color. And the pool is awesome. All that glass, I am assuming he doesn't have any neighbors nearby.

    Wait, the bathroom is in the bedroom with toilet in full view? I don't need to sit in bed watching my beloved take a crap thanks.
