international firm graft architects have sent in images of some of their latest projects. they designed their bird island project as part of the bird island green home competition held by the YTL group.

located in sentul park, kuala lumpur, malaysia ‘bird island’ is an urban renewal development. for the project graft architects have designed a sustainable villa made with a silicone covered glass fabric. the skin twists and turns along the facade changing its transparency and guiding the view of the residents out to the landscape and views of the area. the tent structure reflects sunlight and prevents direct sunlight to heat the main structure.  grey water fro sinks and showers will be able to be reused as part of the water drainage system they have incorporated.
