Another Sultry Tropical Museum Piece from Singapore’s Guz Architects

Guz Architects is one of our favourite architectural firms.

Their radical originality is tenderly wrapped within a vernacular architectural style that is extremely relaxed.

sunhouse13 architecture

Somnolent, even.

sunhouse7 architecture

Theirs is a civilized, bookish kind of colonial architecture that seems quintessentially Singaporean.

sunhouse10 architecture

The originality and delight of this office space that appears to float in a street of water.

Yet it seems as if it is part of an ancient tradition.

So it is a humble style, despite its originality.

What is exhilarating about this house from Guz Architects, is the revolutionary, huge change in the usual indoors/outdoors dichotomy.

sunhouse11 architecture

The sophistication of indoors furnishings in an essentially open air space.

sunhouse3 architecture

Giant wooden pillars form a colonnade upstairs.

sunhouse4 architecture

Their work is instantly recognisable.

The use of water and green roofs and a courtyard is familiar. In some ways it is reminiscent of another of their gorgeous tropical houses we’ve covered…

I love the glass edged pool. (What kind of strength is needed for glass to hold that much water!?)

sunhouse15 architecture

Despite the glass edge, the overall impression is not a high tech feel.

Others of theirs we’ve covered include: Fish House Imagines Waves and Cluny House From Guz Architects and Lush Singapore Lawns Green the Meera House

…but you can’t have too much of heaven.

    I'm so envious of all the natural light in this space! It really plays well with the architecture too. When can I move in? :)
