The School of Design & Environment 4 in Singapore is announced to be the city's first new net-zero building. The structure is completed through a collaboration between London-based studio Serie Architects and local firm Multiply Architects. The silhouette and layout of the institution heavily consider the ecological agenda and aimed at optimizing the connection between architecture and nature.
The net-zero building spans six stories and answers to contemporary sensibilities in its appearance. Serie Architects and Multiply Architects ensured that the structure features an open-concept layout that emphasizes vegetation. The instances of open-air spaces are sure to contribute to the student's comfort. In addition, the net-zero building is adorned with landscapes and gardens that are "a key part of SDE4's ecological and pedagogical experience" which is largely set around sustainability, education and good design.
