Wallflower Architecture + Design, an Singapore studio has totally design an amazing home, it called the Travertine that was finished in 2011 located in Serangon, Singapore.
Adapting to the site environment, this contemporary house could be our reverences how to build fresh aired home, sustainable ideas implementing, eco-friendly green inspiration in tropical climate



Travertine Dream House by Wallflower Architecture + Design:
“The client’s brief for this house was simple. Functionally, to maximize usable area and to incorporate greenery. Aesthetically, to use travertine copiously as an architectural finish. Inspired by the Italian urban-scape during his travels, so too would travertine express this house.
The house is organised as two parallel blocks connected by a glass enclosed bridge. The separation between the two blocks allows daylight to stream down to basement spaces. Thick travertine walls and large overhangs are placed on the western side to limit heat gain from the harsh afternoon sun. The entry, living spaces and bedrooms are arranged longitudinally to take advantage of natural cross ventilation and daylight. In order to intensify land use without ending up with an imposing structure, the four storied house has one level sunk into the ground and the other three set away from the access road.
To accommodate as much green and ‘blue’ space as possible, the gardens and water bodies are spread throughout the house. The living and dining areas on the ground floor face a swimming pool and a fish pond. The basement’s entertainment and guest rooms are open to the sky, with natural light and ventilation coming through a sunken moss garden courtyard. The third storey flat roof is both a recreational deck and a roof garden.
The arrival experience is orchestrated by several layers of travertine wall that suggest a tenuous threshold between the outside and the inside. The detailing is deliberately minimal and precise to enhance the simplicity of the massing and the juxtaposition of solidity and transparency. The narrow blocks that house the living area, the thick stone cladding, multiple levels of gardens and water bodies ensure that the house remains cool in the tropical environment, well ventilated and washed in soft daylight.
The three dimensional composition of voids, layers and solids creates spaces for both quiet reflection and family interaction, something for each mood and moment.”

The Willow House in Singapore with Garden Roof
singapore sustainable home
Singapore base architect, Guz Architects has developed a contemporary house located in Singapore where gets tropical area and the sun always lights along years in this location.
This Singapore house built for a family who needs fresh air and wind experience. This house tries to take advantages of the blowing wind by doing the roof construction for allowing the rough wind flows inside. Almost of Guz Architects's creation places green rooftop, luxurious pool and wonderful garden. The unique glass pool with full of water decorates garden and able to be enjoyed from terrace. The Willow House also put them down to decorate exterior for supporting environment healthy. Sustainability for a long time house and the plants included maximally as possible constitute aspects that being a characteristic of the architect's design. Other houses also apply this concern as well as Rattan House that it applies special garden and environmentally friendly material, Tanga House that planting on rooftop and wonderful pool beautify the exterior also interior, Fish House that interior and exterior have adaptability to environment and Meera Sky Garden House that being inspirational house for green home design.

The Willow House in Singapore by Guz Architects:

“We tried to take advantage of it’s hilltop position by opening up the building plan to make the most of the prevailing breezes and of what little wind there is in Singapore.
Orientation and massing of the house was instrumental in encouraging those breezes.
We always wanted this to be a home with soul, so designing spaces where a family could live together and interact was always part of the brief, and hopefully the design reflects this. We have tried to draw nature in as much as we can in the relatively dense urban environment of Singapore.”
