NUS Architecture is renewing and rebuilding our school. In 2018, we began a full revamp of NUS Architecture’s existing studios and facilities. A new Net-Zero Energy building is scheduled for completion in 2019. New studio spaces will exist as large, light-filled and partially-naturally ventilated common areas configurable to student needs. The new six-storey building incorporates a large overhanging roof, which together with its east and west facades, shade it from the sun’s heat and provide a cooler interior. The design harnesses solar energy, and employs hybrid cooling to deliver a better quality of comfort, and to adapt to Singapore’s tropical climate. The result is an architecture that offers a deeply biophilic experience connecting NUS Architecture’s faculty and students to the campus’ natural surroundings.
