    ONE RAFFLES LINK

    In Singapore, a city of skyscrapers, a new building by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates stands out as the city's first "groundscraper."

    2 SQUARE HOUSE

    The 2 Square House by Marlon Blackwell is on a 0.7-acre (0.3-hectare) site in a 30-year-old residential neighborhood development. The west-facing slope of the site rises steeply 50 feet (15 meters) in elevation to the east perimeter of the site. Access and entry to the site are from the street level along the west perimeter. The site is wooded with native oaks. There are distant views to the west and northwest.
