Most people design their family dwellings to accommodate themselves and their children, but a large family home in Singapore is taking a different approach, and is being designed to have enough room for multiple generations of the family, including any future grandchildren.

Envisioned by locally based design studio Chang Architects, the Cornwall Gardens home stands out for many reasons, with the first feature to catch the eye being a massive garden located on the room, allowing the inhabitants to interact with nature despite living in a hyper-modern city. This large home is also environmentally inclined in terms of energy consumption, with greenery being used to keep temperatures down.

What's great about this home is that it well and truly embraces natural elements both in terms of external appearance and in terms of core functionality, something that speaks to the utility of integrating greenery into modern architectural plans.
