Top Residential Architecture: Eco-Friendly Beach House by Guz Wilkinson
This modern home, created by Guz Wilkinson of Guz Architects, a Singapore firm focusing on eco-friendly tropical homes, truly sets itself aside from other beach front properties with its creative and different design which includes a feeling of unrestricted space, an underwater lounge, undulating roofs, and a unique use of bamboo and limestone.
Not just stylish and sophisticated, the beach front house is eco-friendly, in perfect Guz Wilkinson style. Unique, undulating roofs are lined with solar panels that generate about a third of the energy the house consumes; grass planted on the top provides insulation to optimize natural cooling along with a spot for the couple to practice yoga at dawn. Sliding glass panels allow views of water and sky from every room and will be opened for natural ventilation, reducing the usage of air-con in the often humid climate.
