Water Lily House by Guz Architects

The practice of Guz Architects has a unique approach to contemporary design with their integration of Asian features and abundant natural elements into a tranquil residence such as the Cluny Park House (covered here) and the Water Lily House follows the same carefully considered minimalism with a central water court.

Located in Singapore, the house connects with the water court from each of the interior rooms and planted roof gardens surround the structure to make the residence a part of the natural environment. The main focus was to blend the indoors and outdoors into a single program without having to worry about privacy issues so the water and vegetation became the best solution.

The ground floor contains the living areas with sliding glass doors and transparent walls, while the upper level is reserved for the private bedrooms with a view toward the interior courtyards and louver canopies to protect the windows from direct sunlight.
