  This museum for the display of natural and historic species is located in the campus of the Natural University of Singapore. Built to look like a rock with a chamfered edge, the lighting intent is to highlight the outer rock façade with a cool white colour while the innards of the building have a warm character. Lighting fixtures are tightly integrated with the architectural details so that they are not visible during the day.
