What started out as a separate backyard studio, through the machinations of the sometimes labyrinthine permitting process, has become an "addition" to the existing house through the expansion of project scope to include a larger wrap-around deck and a connecting...

Weekend Guide with Petite Passport: The Coffeehouses of Singapore

How do you like your coffee? With a bit of greenery or some flashy bikes overhead? To launch our travel week, we're exploring five standout cafes in Singapore. Photography by Pauline Egge . Expat Gathering Spot Above: Island enclave Sentosa Cove is home to lots of expats, and their coffee and fresh juice place of choice is the kid-friendly Kith Cafe . In addition to a roomy main space (with lots of indie magazines), there’s a huge terrace. Photograph via Kith Cafe on Petite Passport . Hidden Gem Above: The best city discoveries are always a bit hidden. Ronin doesn't have a website or telephone number, and its easy-to-miss entrance is on a quiet street. But when you find it, you enter a world of coolness. The concrete-and-wood interior is lit only by small lightbulbs, and the coffee and sandwiches are excellent. Photograph via Ronin on Petite Passport . The Bike Shop Cafe  Above: Wheeler's Yard is also not easy to find: Take a cab and you'll arrive at a huge old garage that's a combination bike store and cafe. (In truth, though Singapore is trying to become a bike-friendly city, only daredevils are on the streets right now.) Join them in Wheeler's Yard for a coffee break while you admire the handmade bikes. Photograph via Wheeler's Yard on Petite Passport . Talk of the Town Coffee The best-known coffee in Singapore is Papa Palheta, which has a roastery in the same building as the supercool CSHH Coffee Bar . The space was formerly a hardware store, but now you can treat yourself to a specialized coffee made, of course, with Papa Palheta’s beans. Coffee tastings take place here too, and there's a coffee store worth checking out upstairs. Photograph via Chye Seng Huat Hardware Singapore on Petite Passport . Green Oasis Above: The place to go to if you're looking for some tranquillity?  Longstanding favorite PS Cafe is surrounded by trees and grass in Dempsey Hill. From the terrace, as you sip your coffee (be sure to pair it with the chocolate fudge cake), you see nothing but greenery. Photograph via PS Cafe Singapore on Petite Passport . Our new Weekend Guide columnist, Pauline Egge, is the founder and editor of the travel site  Petite Passport . Pauline lives in Barcelona and the Netherlands, and spends much of her time crisscrossing the globe. For Remodelista, she'll be sharing her favorite design addresses, city by city.

The Bullitt Center in Seattle, Washington, is one of the most self-sufficient buildings on the planet.  It is net zero energy and, after the water reuse system is approved by city authorities, net zero water.  Net zero means that the building uses the same amount as it creates or generates – it is self-sufficient.  In The post Net Zero Case Study: Bullitt Center – Green Materials appeared first on Green Building Elements .
