The Living Grid House

Located on the waterfront of Sentosa Cove in Singapore, a natural environment surrounds the family home.

Using passive elements increase privacy from neighbouring houses and passing vehicles.
Additionally, the green façade offers shade and pleasant views. The frame comprises 800 by 800 cuboids that form a tectonic, cloud-like volume when viewed straight on, it appears as a planar lattice.

Upon closer approach, its three-dimensionality becomes apparent. Poetry and science meld in the framework, whose personality alters at different vantage points and times of day — under sunlight, the grid and plants engage in a sculptural duet; come dusk, the grid is highlighted in wireframe mode as the plants recede into shadow.
