Sun House is a truly magnificent project from Guz Architects. The mansion is located in Singapore and by local standards, is fairly compact. Due to L-shape the architects free up more space for the inner courtyard. There is a swimming pool with an unusual turquoise water and beautiful pond. The building is a continuation of the garden, living area has open plan and direct access to the patio. Stairs, leading to the second floor, is located right on the street, that creates the feeling of unity with nature. In addition to all the owner of the residence is an art collector. Therefore, in the interior you can see plenty of sculptures and paintings.
The main idea of Guz Architects was to create the hi-tech house close to the nature. The Cluny house that is in the centre of the project is spiritualized by water and plants that surround the pavilion and give the impression of the real nature in every bit of the house. Speaking about technologies the house is equipped with state of the art EIB systems, photovoltaic cells, solar water heaters and security systems; they are integrated discreetly and work with the natural environment of the house rather than against it. The designers managed to show a combination of technology, careful planning and sensitive design. The house looks very beautiful and relaxing and in the same time it is functional and modern.
Breathtaking Fish House is situated in Singapore. This exotic residence designed by Guz Architects provides harmony with the environment and magnificent views of the ocean. Some information from architects: “Our main endeavour was to create a residence with seamless integration of the surrounding nature and therefore water had to play a key role in achieving that”. Connection with nature and surrounding landscape is emphasized in various details of interior and exterior. The Fish House is full of open spaces which encourage natural ventilation. Curved roof symbolizes the sea waves and offers green zone for outdoor leisure. Media-room with a u-shaped acrylic window allows diffusing natural light in and also reinforces idea of connection.
