Fish House

Guz Architects as Architects

This modern tropical bungalow encapsulates the essence of living in the hot and humid climate of Singapore by creating open spaces which encourage natural ventilation and offer residents views to the ocean. The main design concept is to create a house which has a close relationship with nature and this is achieved by having a swimming-pool linking the house with the landscape and ultimately forming visual connections with the sea.

The idea of connection is reinforced by having the basement level mediaroom with a u-shaped acrylic window, which allows diffused natural light in and also views out into the pool. The curved roofs, which symbolizes the sea waves, also emphasize the idea of the nearby sea. These are almost totally covered with thin bendable photovoltaic panels supplying enough energy to the house, while the remaining area is used as a green roof giving residents some outdoor leisure spaces. Fish House is a modest and yet luxurious residential design which gives residents opportunities to live in harmony and comfortably with nature.
