Botany at Dairy Farm Price, an upcoming luxury residential project in Singapore, is located in Singapore’s prime west end. The project is developed by the Sim Lian Group. It is a brand new development with a unique design concept that offers a blend of urban style and suburban sophistication. Botany at Dairy Farm Price is located near a public bus terminal and is just a stone’s throw away from the CBD.
Building facades of Dairy Farm Heights
The building facades of Dairy Farm Heights are an example of mid-century barn additions. A concrete plaza and rear block additions were added to the dairy barns in the 1920s, but their rooflines were preserved. The resulting structure has sliding double doors at each entrance, which served as the main entrance and exit from the milking barns.
The west facade consists of irregularly placed windows and bays. A side entry has a hipped roof and large curving brackets protecting it from the elements. The bay to the right contains a pair of small windows and operable folding shutters. The south bay features a one-story addition with a hipped dormer, two double-hung wood windows, and an interior brick chimney.
Another example of an older building facade can be seen at Howlin’ Ray’s. Located on the site of a former dairy, the restaurant also contains a vintage Adohr Milk Farms facade. The dairy was founded in 1916 by Merritt Adamson. It was sold to Southland Corporation in 1966, and then sold again two decades later. Eventually, it was demolished.
In contrast, the south facade is less imposing. The main entrance is set perpendicular to the farm lane. The north facade features a small porch enclosure, which is probably reused from an earlier building. The front door is wood-paneled, and has one fixed glass pane and a screen door.
Building facades of Dairy Farm Lane
One of the most striking aspects of the Dairy Farm Lane complex is the old-style brick facade of Dairy Farm, which has a history dating back to the late 18th century. The Dairy was built on a former farm, and was home to several different families. The original farm was torn down in 1969. A replica was constructed on the site.
The steel structures allowed for a maximum roof slope of 30 deg, avoiding common problems with smaller roof slopes. This helped the building achieve the necessary air exchange requirements for the dairy and prevented any risk of animals suffering from heat stroke. The steel structure also allowed for the installation of polycarbonate rooflights, which allow for additional lighting.
The Dairy Farm Lane at Dairy farm has two distinct facades: the north and south facades. The north facade is a five-bay structure with a raised base. It features a central doorway and two 6/1 double-hung wood windows with operable wood shutters. The north facade features a parged concrete block foundation.
The south elevation of the farm lane houses a mid-century residential building. This wood-frame house has several additions. It is painted white and is clad with wood German siding. It has a single-story addition at the back. The roof is made of standing-seam metal.
