Homeground at NMS

Homeground@NMS is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional kampong (“village” in Malay) house, taking inspiration from its most recognisable form and key architectural elements. Constructed entirely using one singular material - the perforated metal mesh is also a cheeky reference to the ubiquitous chicken coop cages often seen in kampongs. During the day, the house is light, airy and porous. At night, it becomes ethereal, glowing like a lantern.
