Astrid Hill House in Singapore is a re-interpretation of a traditional Chinese courtyard house. The architects created a sustainable and environmentally responsible dwelling where sun shading with Helioscreen Sergé 3% fabric helps to reduce heat gain in the tropical environment.
Rooms are laid out to make use of cross ventilation. The green walls provide evaporative cooling, while light wells in the roof allow natural light to filter through. Photovoltaic panels and a geothermal exchange powered cooling system help to conserve energy. Thanks to the Helioscreen Sergé 3% keeping out the heat, the owners can use their air-conditioning sparingly.
Because the house is built so environmentally friendly, it received a sustainability award by the Singapore government.
