Singapore is well known for its multicultural spirit and universal appeal to travelers–and great shopping. Mustafa Center, a multilevel shopping center, offers an intense, 24-hour-a-day shopping experience, with its myriad of interesting shops that attract more than 15,000 customers of many nationalities every weekend. Mustafa Center offers everything from fine fabrics to electronic devices to jewels. Its restaurants, too, offer a wide selection of cuisine. Crowning it all is a Geometrica dome. Geometrica’s glass and stainless steel structure serves as the eye-catching roof for the restaurant on the top floor of the shopping center, where diners can choose from among a host of offerings while they watch the ever-evolving city come alive as the sun goes down. This structure, similar to the Museo del Niño (Children’s Museum) in Puerto Rico and the Hyatt Hotel in Cancun, Mexico, exemplifies the combined beauty of metal and glass, magnifying its surroundings in a collage of colors and shapes.

The client lives in a housing initiative that incorporates both the contemporary and the historical, combining ubiquitous high-rise living with a façade of traditional houses in one of Singapore’s protected conservation neighbourhoods. Located on the highest floor of the conserved shophouses, the studio is small but offers the possibility of expanding vertically into the attic. An elevated platform is introduced to not only access the available space, but also create a double-heighted volume that lends a more generous feel to the apartment and provide an expanse upon which the client, an art enthusiast, can showcase her collections.

Setting amidst the nature reserve that bounds the Upper Seletar reservoir, the bungalow at Mandai area is bestowed with the serenity and repose rarely found in the island of buzzling Singapore.
In the island where every inch of land is dear, the owner’s brief for a single-storey bungalow house is unusual, and reflects a nonchalant attitude towards the mainstream practice of maximising the allowable buildable area granted by the authority.

Who hasn’t, in their school-going days, skip a class or two, just to sleep in late or catch a movie on a quiet afternoon? In that spirit of playfulness and remembrances of lulling languid days, the design for Skyve Bistro was born. The bistro, thus named, also harks back to the compounds’ previous usage as a secondary school.

Brief: This house is a half a century old single storey terrace house.
Concept: There are 3 main agendas: to be cost effective, to be a sustainable design, to create a symbiosis of Art and Design.
Layout:Total built-in area – 147 sqm. Old dividing walls that enclosed the small living room was demolished and replaced by 2 sets of new full-height pivot panels, creating good cross ventilation across the house. Flat ceiling was removed to expose the high pitch ceiling, keeping the house cool. Front wall was hacked to create front patio. The 2 bedrooms were retained. A doorway was hacked at the central air well, allowing good ventilation into the master bedroom.

Taking advantage of the majestic void space in Paragon Shopping Mall Singapore, an art installation, which spans across two floors, sweeps impressively across the area, inviting a sense of excitement and wonder. Tens of thousands of “black gems” rain down from above, resonating with the momentary quality of a pop-up store – an ephemeral, fleeting point in time, caught in a still image. Illustrating the legacy of the Hublot brand and its innovations, the installation seeks to recreate its notable paradoxical philosophy with an illusory space; magically solid yet porous and structurally monumental yet light.
