The Meera House was designed by Guz Architects and is located on the island of Sentosa in Singapore. The following is a short description from the architects: The plots are not large and neighboring buildings are built close to the sides of each house. Thus our strategy was to build a solid wall to each side neighbor to provide privacy where possible, while creating a central light and stair well which would funnel the sea breeze through the center of the building. The front and rear of the building meanwhile, terrace back allowing each storey to have visual or actual access to greenery. The intention was to try to allow each roof garden to provide a base for the storey above allowing the layered effect to make each storey feel like it was a single storey dwelling sitting in a garden, as much as the architects could do in the close confines of Sentosa island and with such a large building!
