The Sun House located in Singapore designed by Guz Architects is laid out in L shape with an open courtyard as the central focal point. Lushly planted roof gardens create the effect that nature is part of the house. Ponds and pools serve as cooling elements for the building.
The Tangga House designed by Guz Architects is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional courtyard house in Singapore. A central green courtyard with double height stair and entry area form the focal point of the house. The open L-shaped plan with open spaces allows natural ventilation. The house is surrounded by lushly planted roof gardens. The swimming pool, which wraps around two sides of the house, is transparent both from the outside and from the inside. This inspiring design creates an environment in harmony with nature in the hot tropical climate.
The integration between inside and outside is a key theme and function of this tropical house on Sentosa Island, Singapore. Designed by Guz Architects, the Fish House embraces Singapore’s tropical climate by creating an open space that allows interaction between the ocean, the garden, the swimming pool and the house. The natural sea breeze ventilates the tropical home, while the curved wavy roofs with solar panels supply energy to the house. This modern home promotes living in harmony with the natural environment.
