Singapore is one of those wonderful magical places where extreme wealth produces some of the world’s best design and certainly this is never more evident than in the homes they build. Homes of this scale are not uncommon on the island city, what is uncommon however, is the dedication to the relationship between the residence and nature is.
Through this relationship, the house, home to a multi-generational family, has been designed by Chang Architects to provide passive cooling, natural airflow and natural light to all rooms. Built around a central pool and water feature, the house rises up with planter boxes and green walls creating a contemporary oasis full of fruit trees and shady corners for the family to relax and entertain and importantly privacy from the outside world.
I love that large-scale homes like this are being built and that people are celebrating the environment they are living in and ensuring their homes adapt and respond to nature in a positive way.
