The house is laid out around a central water court that forms the focal point of the project. Lushly planted roof gardens surround this and add to the effect that nature is evident in every part of the house.
This project also demonstrates how technology, planning and design can be applied sensitively to generate a comfortable, luxurious, yet sustainable family home.
Our main endeavour was to create a residence with seamless integration of the surrounding nature and therefore water had to play a key role in achieving that.
This project was awarded an ‘Honourable Mention’ in the 2010 Singapore Institute of Architects Design awards.
