House with Forest Inside It – House at Orchard by Chang Architects

House With Forest Inside House At Orchard

Located in Singapore this house unites concrete, glass, timber, steel and elements of nature like plants and trees. It has interchangeable rooms floating in a bigger volume of space. This volume is fitted into a terrace plot with a 2-storey high retaining wall at the rear, which was transformed into a pebbled waterfall that opens up to the sky. Below, a pond that collects rainwater encompasses the living area. Everywhere around the house different plants and trees could be found. Living in such place is like living in a forest in the middle of the city. Even a microclimate there is different from usual houses. [Chang Architects, via: worldarchitecturenews]
