'A D Lab' recently designed a green residence that seamlessly fuses nature and modern design. While modern architecture is often thought of as cold and impersonal, this home demonstrates how elements of nature can be used to give contemporary residences a warm touch.

The House at Trevose Place is a green residence located in a residential area of Singapore. The home features a modern, multi-dimensional design that helps it fit in with the contemporary neighborhood. Yet the home also features unique natural elements that give it a more cozy feel. For one, the home features an external pathway that winds around the outside and connects to a rooftop law. This helps to maximize the home's green space by elevating it off of the ground. The home also boasts a courtyard and swimming pool surrounded by mature trees and other greenery.
