Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

Article source: Studio Wills + Architects

This is a project for an office in a light industrial area in Singapore. Buildings in such areas have low ceiling and big floor plates.

The client acquired an office space with a combined floor area of 400 sqm. Large floor plate coupled with low ceiling resulted in a very oppressive space, which is the given condition of the project.

Primrose Avenue in Singapore by HYLA Architects

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Article source:  HYLA Architects

This 3-storey intermediate terrace house has a unique rotating screen on its front elevation. Its cross section has an aerodynamic boomerang shape that serves to deflect wind on one side. On the other side the screen is clad with timber to give privacy. So the occupants can rotate the screen according to what they need. This also gives the facade an ever changing pattern that corresponds to the mood of its users. Inside the 1st storey has a high ceiling and good cross ventilation into a rear garden court. The staircase has a unique triangular cross section and is well lit with a skylight above.

THE MINTON in Singapore by DP Architects

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

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.

The Interlace in Alexandra Road, Singapore by OMA/Ole Scheeren

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Article source: OMA/Ole Scheeren

The Interlace in Singapore, a large-scale residential development by CapitaLand Singapore, has been chosen by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) in Chicago as the winner of the inaugural worldwide Urban Habitat Award 2014 in recognition of its groundbreaking contributions to the urban realm and social sustainability.

Ole Scheeren’s design generates an extensive network of private and shared spaces in a radical reinterpretation of contemporary life in a community. Instead of following the default typology of housing in dense urban environments – clusters of isolated towers – the design turns vertical isolation into horizontal connectivity and reinstates the notion of community as a central issue in today’s society.

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Article source: HYLA Architects

A courtyard on two levels sits in the centre of this semi-detached house. On the first level, a frangipani tree sits in the middle of a pond, framed by a timber clad box. The double volume living room and the dining room wraps around this courtyard. The second storey level of the courtyard lies over the dining area and in front of the master bedroom. The full height glass facade facing the courtyard is screened by interlocking vertical and horizontal timber members. The courtyard offers the house a lot of privacy as well as letting in light into the cetnre of the house. It also acts as a buffer against noise from a major road a distance away.
