The Meera House by Guz Architects We have already reviewed the Fish House by Guz Architects, and now present another project of these talented designers. The houses have much in common and it is difficult to say which one is more beautiful. The Meera House is located on the island of Sentosa adjacent to Singapore and amazes with its magnificence. Looking from above, the house is like a green oasis, because roof and terraces are covered with grass and some trees. But this is not the only outstanding feature of this splendid design. Beautiful view of the water, the incredible staircase and swimming pool separated by glass walls are also impressed by their originality. You might also like Sky Garden House I think one of the reasons that many are skeptical about environmental design is because they think its terribly complex and costly. It does take a bit more effort on the front end, but it's definitely not rocket science. This architecture by Guz Architects is a wonderfully developed minimalistic design with a curvilinear flare that really brings out the organic coverings. I'm most impressed with how design facilitates the needs of the plants and shrubs located throughout the house. See more at Guz Architects

Private House in Tinos | Yatzer& photo (c) Yiorgos Kordakis There is a symbolic island, a gem with the essence of calmness and serenity in Cyclades, Greece. Its beauty is picturesque and it reminds you of all that is idealic. This heaven is Tinos. On this island we discovered a private house designed by Greek Zege architects which represents all that Tinos stands for. Respecting its architectural surroundings and capturing the day to day beauty and simplicity, the architects created this private residence as it was meant to be designed for Tinos. Located on a mountain in the old residential site of Triandros this vacation home is actually made up of two separate houses which have been brought together through a picturesque veranda. The exterior architecture coincides with the rules and balance of the typical residential islandic forms. The interior consists of 250sqm living space, from which one house has three storeys and the other just two. This approach is also carried through into the bedrooms. sources:
The Cluny House by Guz Architects By Eric • Feb 25, 2011 • Selected Work The Cluny House, located in Singapore, is another dream home designed by Guz Architects. The project demonstrates how technology, planning and design can be applied sensitively to generate a comfortable, luxurious, yet sustainable family home. The Cluny House by Guz Architects: “Photovoltaic cells and solar water heaters are employed together with design for passive cooling and cross ventilation to reduce energy usage. Irrigation tanks and roof gardens collect and recycle rainwater; and the use of materials such as recycled teak and artificial timber adds warmth without compromising the finite resources of our environment. The house is laid out around a central water court that forms the focal point of the project. Although the house is high tech – using state of the art EIB systems, photovoltaic cells, security systems – these are integrated discreetly and work with the natural environment of the house rather than against it.
