Holiday Inn Express in Clarke Quay, Singapore by RSP Architects Planners & Engineers (Pte) Ltd

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: RSP Architects Planners & Engineers

The new Holiday Inn Express hotel projects a distinct, geometrical facade that is engaging, generating a new buzz in the vibrant Clarke Quay neighbourhood within the city centre. Completed in February 2014, within a site area of 11,555 m2, the design approach for this seven-storey hotel has been largely driven by the urban design requirements and technical conditions for the site. Its striking facade comprising of hotel room windows tilted and inclined at an angle, creates an identity of its own along Clemenceau Avenue.The design is firmly rooted in keeping the rooms shaded as much as possible from the direct and harsh afternoon sun as a large part of the Clemenceau Avenue elevation is west facing. The resultant facade is expressive, providing rooms across this elevation about 95% shade for more than half the year.

Erection of 2-Storey Semi-Detached Dwelling House with Attic

The front has a westerly orientation and thus the house is turned around to face the back which is more private.  A series of sleek vertical aluminium screens protect the house from the sun whilst allowing the wind to pass through.  The entrance hall has a reflecting pool and a high volume.  The stairs travel up the 3 levels alongside a granite clad wall to reach the master bedroom and roof terrace at the top and rear.  The master bathroom has a free standing vanity, bath and wc with a skylight and light chandelier on top.

Jalan Mat Jambol in Singapore by Zarch Collaboratives

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

Article source: Zarch Collaboratives

Approaching the house from the street level, one notices a raw, chamfered concrete fascia. The windowless façade reveals the interior of the house, almost as if the house is still in a state of construction, primitive in its language of expression. The raw elevation provides glimpses of a spiral staircase drum, with a seemingly makeshift timber box protruding from the articulated structural elements, augmenting the sense of theatrics in a neighbourhood of quiet terrace houses.

Goodwood Residence in Bukit Timah Road, Singapore by WOHA

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

Article source: WOHA

Set amidst an enclave of black and white houses just off the prime Orchard/Scotts Road area, and against a verdant 20-hectare backdrop of greenery, the 210-unit Goodwood Residence is conceived on a macro scale as a breathing space – a rarity in high density urbanised Singapore – and an extension of the Goodwood Hill tree conservation area that it shares a boundary of 150m with. Articulated as two 12-storey L-shaped blocks, the 2.5-hectare development dialogues with the hill that it embraces and merges with in a language of openness and continuity made expressive by varying degrees of scale and privacy.

Lush greenery along site perimeter dissolves the building boundary and affords a green introduction to the development., Image Courtesy © Patrick Bingham-Hall

We have a long relationship with the Client. The project we did for them in 2001 is next to this house where we divided a bungalow plot into two separate but identical houses which won the prestigious Singapore Institute of Architects’ Design Award in 2004. That was ten years ago and recently they acquired the plot next door with the intention of building another home so altogether they have three houses for themselves and their two grown up sons and their future families.
