From the architect. This modern tropical bungalow encapsulates the essence of living in the hot and humid climate of Singapore by creating open spaces which encourage natural ventilation and offer residents views to the ocean.

The main design concept is to create a house which has close relationship with nature and this is achieved by having a swimming-pool linking the house with the landscape and ultimately visual connections with the sea. The idea of connection is reinforced by having the basement level media-room with a u-shaped acrylic window which allows diffuse natural light in and also views out into the pool. The curved roofs, which symbolizing the sea waves, also emphasize the idea of the nearby sea. These are almost totally covered with thin bendable photovoltaic panels supplying enough energy to the house, while the remaining area is used as a green roof giving residents some outdoor leisure spaces.

Fish House is a modest and yet luxurious residential design which gives residents opportunities to live in harmony and comfortably with nature.

First of all, I gotta say, this is beautiful. I would love just being there. That said, I think their concepts and theories fall pretty flat, especially when they talk about creating relationships with nature... all I see other than the ocean are huge apartment complexes. I think they will be creating relationships with their neighbors more than anything (and probably unwanted one-way relationships). The other thing that always gets me is the purposeful neglect for the presence of a television. I realize they don't want that to be a focal point, but it is a very unfortunate distraction having the thing sitting on the floor. Everything else has nice composition in the room, why not the tv?
