Nature and architecture become one

The philosophy of Guz Architects is to produce revitalising architecture that's inspired by nature. From the materials and technology they use, their designs become a part of the landscape, preserving the surrounding natural environment of any location they work on.  

The Willow House architects said;

"We tried to take advantage of it's hilltop position by opening up the building plan to make the most of the prevailing breezes and of what little wind there is in Singapore.

Orientation and massing of the house was instrumental in encouraging those breezes.

We always wanted this to be a home with soul, so designing spaces where a family could live together and interact was always part of the brief, and hopefully the design reflects this. We have tried to draw nature in as much as we can in the relatively dense urban environment of Singapore."
