The swimming pool is part of an environmentally friendly seafront house in Singapore’s Sentosa Island. It embraces Singapore’s tropical climate by creating open, breezy spaces that gives residents views from every room to the ocean as well as into the garden and swimming pool.
Water plays a key role in our endeavour to create a residence with seamless integration of the surrounding nature.
The large swimming pool features free flowing borders and artificial islands that link the garden with the house.
This connection is extended to the basement media room, where a grand u-shaped window allows dramatic views into the underwater world of the pool and provides indirect daylight to the room.
