Net zero Singapore school for design & environment
The net zero ‘NUS school of design & environment 4′ in Singapore is a co-design effort of Serie Architects, Multiply Architects and Surbana Jurong consultancy for urbanisation and infrastructure developments.
The building is a prototype of sustainable design and combines contemporary sustainable methods with a tropical building language.
Located on a hilltop near the southern coastline of Singapore, SDE4 is a new addition to a larger campus redevelopment in the design and environment precinct.
The climate-responsive building includes more than 1,500 square meters of design studio space, a 500-square-meter open plaza, workshops and research centers, and a new library.
The building’s flexible design and high efficiency reflect the school’s ambitions to promote new forms of educational spaces as a scaffold for research.
The rooms are designed in a variety of scales to allow for flexible reorganisation for exhibitions, school-specific installations and future change of use.
