Green Roof Architecture, Singapore Style

Here’s a fab example of modern green roof architecture, Singapore style! Designed by Guz Architects, this green house sits on the island of Sentosa adjacent to Singapore, enjoying stunning city views on the horizon, and sweet serenity right in its own backyard. The architects placed a wall on each side of the home, providing privacy from the neighboring properties. All that’s left to enjoy are the breathtaking views, whether it’s from the outdoor living rooms and terraces, the indoor-outdoor areas, the roof top loft, or the water features. A central staircase takes you up a central light-filled stairwell and leads to the piece de resistance – the loft design idea with walkout to the second-storey garden, while itself featuring its own rooftop garden, creating the intimate feeling of single-storey living on every level. Now, that’s thinking outside the box. Guz Architects
