Guz Architects has completed the Fish House in Singapore. Fish House is a luxury residential design is simple and yet give people the opportunity to live in harmony and comfortable with nature. This modern tropical bungalow summarizes the essence of life in hot and humid climate of Singapore by creating open spaces that encourage natural ventilation and offers views of residents into the sea. The main design concept is to create a home that has a close relationship with nature and this is achieved by having a swimming-pool that connects the house with the landscape and visual connections with the sea eventually. The idea of connection is strengthened by having a basement-level media room with a u-shaped acrylic windows that allow natural light in and also spread the view to the pool. Roof arch, which symbolizes the ocean waves, also stressed the idea of the nearby sea. This is almost entirely covered with photovoltaic panels can bend the thin supply enough energy to homes, while the remaining are used as green roofs give residents some space to relax outdoors.
