Xtra Herman Miller Shop – 9 Oct 2012
The design inspiration for the architects comes from Herman Miller’s core products; Work Chairs. Learning from the design processes of the work chairs, which combines formal, structural and material innovation based on the research of Ergonomics to create a surface that moulds comfortably to the human body, our proposal seek to develop a “skin” for the Herman Miller Store that is “moulded” to its host – Xtra.

UOL Edge Gallery Singapore – 20 Jul 2012
Singapore has been experiencing a residential condominium development boom in recent years and as a result, architects have been called upon to design a slew of temporary show gallery buildings to facilitate the display and sale of these developments. “Remarkably, instead of the rich design variety one may imagine emerging from such commissions, the majority of show gallery design has been woefully homogenous and formulaic – architecture comprising of awkwardly proportioned cubes of glass, plaster and timber with interior design independent from its architectural edifice, typically styled with uninhibited ostentation and cliched visions of luxury”.

This new institution, jointly created by Yale University and the National University of Singapore, will enroll up to 1,000 students. Adjacent to NUS’s University Town, the project comprises a central campus green flanked by academic and administrative buildings as well as three residential colleges, each arranged around its own courtyard.

Scotts Tower Singapore – 7 Dec 2011
UNStudio’s design for The Scotts Tower in Singapore will be the first development to be unveiled today under the Far East Organisation’s new SOHO brand. Designed to conserve space whilst maximizing live/work/play areas, The Scotts Tower high end residential building is situated on a prime location in Singapore, close to the Orchard Road luxury shopping district and with views encompassing both nearby parkland and the panoramic cityscape of Singapore City. The final design outcome of this 120 unit 5 storey residential development, belies the challenges that the site poses. The site is like the side of a hill, varying in height of up to 8 metres between the rear of the site to the front of the site. The terrain also rises towards the centre of the site.

Sentosa Cove House
This home can endure the tropics with minimal environmental impact, by tapping on available resources. Four levels make up the building, each catering to various social and entertainment needs while also accommodating each family member’s individual need for solitude. Achieving space maximisation and privacy were also factored into this design, in view of the house’s proximity to neighboring units. As a result, the internal spaces face inward into a multi-functional courtyard which acts as circulation pivot and lightwell, while also serving as a visual focal point. Dense foliage also provides a natural means for additional privacy.
