The tropical climate of Singapore is enough to make anyone really take a look at ways to keep things cool when it’s hot and humid outside. With plenty of indigenous plants, local bodies of water and proximity to the ocean, one would think that regulating the heat isn’t much of an issue. For this home by K2LD, much of the exterior’s design was focused on keeping that hot air out.
Patina’d copper tiles were utilized to absorb much of the heat barren air, and while it is all trapped between the outer and inner shell layers of the structure, the natural materials inside all look very crisp, clean and cool. Light stone, wood and glass surround every inch of the 7,000+ square foot space. So while the patina of the turquoise exterior looks every bit aesthetically pleasing, it’s actually serving for a bigger purpose.
