This Waterfront Home in Singapore is Eco-Friendly
This waterfront home in Singapore is not only eco-friendly, but it’s also boat friendly, as it has it’s own dock for a boat. This place feels more like a boat than a home, as you’ll see, with it’s skylights, it’s large and modern curved roof, as well as modern bathroom with an accompanying shower. Another gorgeous home designed by Greg Shand Architects.
That curved roof is absolutely fantastic, as it adds a that yacht feel to the home environment.
Sleek in design, this home is about as modern as it gets.
With practically seamless paneling, this kitchen just looks like a boat. With succulent curves, beautiful reflections, and sleek panels, this kitchen puts other modern kitchens to shame.
Even the stairs are modern.
I’m not quite sure what this is, but it looks cool.
The shower is my favorite part of this house. A shower for two, the sliding glass door makes it feel open, and the curved back wall and bottom floor add to the ‘boatyness’ of the structure.
From the architect
This nautical themed eco-friendly waterfront [home] in Singapore has a sinuous wave envelope with wide overhangs that provide shading for the hot Eastern and Western sun, and opens up to the North and South. The underside of the ceiling is clad in recycled teak, reminiscent of a boat hull. Extensive low-e glazing affords views of the waterway to the North and South China Sea to the South. Good natural cross ventilation is provided when the large sliding glass doors are opened to allow cool sea breezes to flow through the spaces. Recycled timber used externally for decking reduces heat gain.
Where there is no view of the ocean, the walls and built in elements of the spaces are curved to give a constant reminder of the seafront context of the home. For example, the master bathroom walls are flowing curves with a shaded skylight over to afford views of the sky and curved roof above. The walls, floor and ceiling of the bathroom form a sinuous curved envelope clad with stainless steel, and all bathroom fixtures including basins, water closet’s and shower fittings echo this fluid curvaceous nautical theme.
