The Singapore House is a house made for big, extended families. Perfect for parents, children and grandparents, it not only takes into account the need for communal areas, but also privacy. Comprised of three stories, it would be hard not to find a place of solitude.

Designed by Czarl Architects in collaboration with Mink Architects, the Singapore House is full of floor-to-ceiling windows, which is not an issue considering that the structure is surrounded by mature trees and dense vegetation. That said, the indoors can become one with the outdoors in an even more tangible way. The walls open up to let a cool breeze flow through the Singapore House -- making air conditioning unnecessary.
