This masterpiece by Guz Architects caught our attention with it’s extremely extraordinary and unique exterior design which makes sit look like very fresh and natural.
We are talking about the Meera Sky Garden by Guz Architects which is located on the island of Sentosa in Singapore. It is a large multi-layered four story house which tries it’s best to interact and fit in with the nature around it by adding gardens and greenery at all levels, including the roof.
It’s design features a central void large volumes which maximizes cross ventilation and reduces dependence on mechanical air conditioning. With a lot of other fancy functions to reduce reliance on artificial lightning and energy consumption, the best feature are the gardens on each level, which provide shade and reduce overheating in Singapore’s tropical climate to enhance life quality. The large areas of grass absorb much less heat than conventional roofing materials, resulting in less thermal storage in the building itself, thus reduce the required use of cooling systems.
