The 2nd in a series of three show galleries for UOL, this is for Thomson Three residential development in Singapore. The design capitalizes on the characteristics of its unique site conditions and uses it to heighten the experience of show gallery and show flats. Nestled amongst a grove of tightly spaced trees and bounded by 2 roadways, the gallery is primarily arranged around a central model display atrium with a top lit skylight, with 4 ‘pods’ extending outwards from this central point. 2 of the pods are orientated towards the roadway, with large glass windows providing the surrounding traffic an enticing view into the gallery’s bustle and sales activity — serving as the show gallery’s \”window display\” and a means to showcase the development models and graphics.
