Eco-friendly waterfront house in Singapore: Nautical Lines

Nautical Lines-Greg Shand Architects-01-1 Kindesign

Nautical Lines is a nautical themed eco-friendly waterfront house with large expanses of fenestration to maximize the views, designed by Greg Shand Architects, located in Singapore. This modern residence offers a sinuous wave envelope with large overhangs which helps to provide shading from the hot east and west sunshine, opening to both the north and south. Reminiscent of a boat hull, the underside of the ceiling has been clad in recycled teak. There is plenty of natural cross ventilation provided from the sliding glass doors, which the owner’s open to allow fresh breezes from the water to flow throughout. To reduce solar heat gain, recycled timber has been used for the external decking.

Description from the architects:

Extensive low-e glazing affords views of the waterway to the North and South China Sea to the South. Where a view has not been offered from the ocean, the walls and built-in elements of the spaces are curved to offer a contiuous reminder of the seafront context of the home. As an example, the master bathroom walls are flowing curves with a shaded skylight over to afford views of the sky and curved roof above.

The walls, floor and ceiling of the bathroom form a sinuous curved envelope clad with stainless steel, and all bathroom fixtures including basins, water closet’s and shower fittings echo this fluid curvaceous nautical theme.
