Singaporean architectural firm K2LD Architects has created the Green House.
Completed in 2009, this 7,879 square foot modern property in Singapore functions a striking patina-aged copper clad exterior.
The Green House by K2LD Architects:
“The Green House stands as a monolithic copper cube, quietly complementing its context – a lush park opposite the plot. From the outside, the house is a patina-aged copper clad cube with window openings and timber infill carved into the façade. The patina-aged copper cladding not only reflects the luscious greenery in the neighbourhood, but also permits the ‘Green Home’ to minimize power consumption by acting as a heat barrier.
Spatial variation is developed via the interplay of double volumes, curved ceiling and sculptured gardens. The style procedure of volumetric reduction of a 9-by-9 cube offers for cross ventilation and minimises the influence of the massing of the developing with respect to the adjacent dwelling units. Each the living spaces and bedrooms appreciate a lush view of the park, bringing house closer to Nature.”
