Eco-friendly elements make this an ideal tropical home for the modern family 

This is a home that can endure Singapore’s unforgiving tropical climate with minimal impact to the environment, simply by tapping onto readily available natural resources. Four levels make up the building, each catering to the family's various social and entertainment needs while also making sure to accommodate each member's need for personal space and quiet solitude.

Achieving space maximisation and privacy were also factored into this design, in view of the house's close proximity to neighbouring units. As a result, the internal spaces face inward into a multi-functional courtyard. This space acts as a circulation pivot, light well and ventilation exhaust, while also serving as a visual focal point. A wall of dense foliage also provides a natural means for additional privacy.

The building's slimmer east and west facades are a contrast to the wide-open north and south ones. This regulates natural lighting and wind ventilation for efficient thermal circulation. A pitched roof, with its series of repeating slopes, also generates additional skylight openings. And let's also not forget that this is first and foremost a home for an active couple and their kids. For this, a lap pool and training room ensure that their fitness needs are taken care of.
