Sustainable architecture has experienced a huge rise in popularity in the past few decades, and it’s showing no signs of stopping. Many architects are trying to minimize the negative environmental impact of their buildings with sustainable and eco-friendly designs, including Singapore-based firm WOHA Architects.
Founded in 1994 by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell, this architecture practice has been wowing us with its sustainable designs ever since. According to their official website, this duo is known for “their distinct approach to biophilic design and integrated landscaping, finding nature-based solutions to regenerate and forge new relationships between the man-made and natural world.”
This basically means that their buildings are meant to be as eco-friendly as possible and integrate natural vegetation and greenery as a building element. They’re also meant to foster the communities where they’re built and create a connection between their members.
The majority of WOHA’s projects are located in their home country, including Singapore’s Oasia Downtown Hotel, Kampung Admiralty, and Parkroyal Collection Pickering. China, Thailand, Australia, and Indonesia are also home to some of their eco-friendly designs that bring a dash of greenery to every neighborhood.
