Sentosa House, Singapore, by Guz Wilkinson
Wilkinson's design turns the traditional floor plan of a two-storey house on its head
Wilkinson tried to maximise the drama of the site by 'putting the living area upstairs with the best view and breezes'
The house is based on a tropical, open plan design...
... the main living spaces have been pulled apart to maximise views, breeze and contact with nature
As much space as possible was moved downstairs...
... including the media room (pictured), secondary bedrooms and wine cellar
Two transparent wings create a flow of cool, natural ventilation, light and unimpeded views, especially from the master bedroom
Wilkinson has made the transition between the inside and outside of a house as seamless as possible
Energy conservation - Wilkinson's pet project - is achieved with a roof garden...
... and a rear roof that's embedded with photovoltaic cells that help power the house
Constructed where possible from dark timber and other natural materials, the Sentosa House reflects Wilkinson's love of nature
The house sits on a 726sqm flat piece of land that faces the sea
