Guz Architects designed the 'Water Lily House,' a contemporary estate in Singapore that is arranged around a water court.
The central location of the court ensures that it the focal point of the home. The feature is further enhanced by roof gardens that offer a lush, abundant vibe which emphasizes how integral nature is to the design.
Beyond creating an interesting visual piece, the architects main objective was to shield the property from curious neighbors and passers-by. The watery courtyard played a key role in achieving the level of privacy that the homeowners required. The roof gardens also play a secondary role when it comes to connecting the bedrooms on the upper level to the nature and views available in the courtyard.
