Singaporean architectural company K2LD Architects has designed the Green House.
Finished in 2009, this 7,879 square foot contemporary property in Singapore functions a striking patina-aged copper clad exterior.
The Green Home by K2LD Architects:
“The Green Property stands as a monolithic copper cube, quietly complementing its context – a lush park opposite the plot. From the outside, the property 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 allows the ‘Green Home’ to decrease vitality consumption by acting as a heat barrier.
Spatial variation is created through the interplay of double volumes, curved ceiling and sculptured gardens. The design and style process of volumetric reduction of a 9-by-9 cube gives for cross ventilation and minimises the effect of the massing of the creating with respect to the adjacent dwelling units. Both the living spaces and bedrooms take pleasure in a lush see of the park, bringing house closer to Nature.”
