Award-Winning Watercooled House for Singapore from Wallflower
Here is yet another example of this attractive and energy efficient technology, from Wallflower, who deservedly have won this year’s Singapore Institute of Architects Design Award for yet another house in Singapore to use water for cooling.
In an unusual reversal of the norm, in this house the living room and the infinity pool are on the second storey.
This helps prevent solar heat gain underneath, thermally insulating the floor below, containing the dining, bedrooms and family spaces.
The cooling pool is contained within this white overhang, on the second floor.
A spiral stairway with a small footprint connects the ground floor to the second storey pool.
This leaves the rest of second floor to appearing to float on the pool, entirely free and open for uninterrupted enjoyment of the tropical views in a cool surrounding.
Wallflower is making it easy (and gorgeous!) being Green.
