The design of these two multi-storey properties respects the scale of the adjacent residential centre.

THE MINTON in Singapore by DP Architects

 
April 21st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: DP Architects

In today’s highly competitive home property market, what is valued is a design that differentiates the individual’s living experience, in line with market trends.

The Minton, completed in 2014, comprises ten 15-storey and eight 17-storey apartment blocks, with a total of 1,145 units including 24 units of penthouses. Despite its size, the development is an example of a unique high-rise living concept, built on a creative interpretation of the landscape and the provision of differentiated amenities. All blocks are oriented in the north-south direction in three linear rows, ample spaces maintained between the blocks. The design takes full advantage of the site topography in the use of open spaces and landscaping to create distinctively different experiences, facilitated by bridges and sky terraces connecting the blocks. Two of the three sky terraces accommodate spa facilities for residents, while the third serves as a landscaped deck connected to a bridge that links the different levels in this development.

Historically, Spikeri was a warehouse district with 58 warehouses, built in the late 19th century, to store cargo from ships and train freights. Nowadays only 13 warehouses have been preserved, yet it is enough to feel the historic atmosphere. Spikeri square is a public space, constantly exposed to the changes of urban development and society evolution process, thus the historical environment is authentic and multi-layered, reflecting the citizen attitude towards cultural and historical values, accumulated there over centuries.

The location of the proposed new building is set in response to the combination of  clear criteria of availability of space with powerful reasons of ease of use, based on the experience of the life of the school.

The fundamental design decisions are deducted in effect, in general, a number of criteria securely fastened in the minds of the property, from their experience. And this experience is nothing other than that which you have provided years of the College and its various buildings and facilities. Such criteria have decided to check the location of this new construction, according to their functional efficacy in terms of use of the land, organizational coherence, order, and optimizing the circulation, spatial sequence, and above all the desire of minimizing interference from the new building to the daily operation of the existing complex built of the school has played a special role.
