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

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]
