The architect’s vision is impressive in its boldness, serving to set this conservation effort apart from the rest. Interestingly, the architect seemed to have been inspired by constraints faced, coming up with rather convention-busting design strategies.

The centerpiece is a patterned steel cage staircase spiralling up to the attic floor. It is at the front and dead centre, and softly tilts because of the offalignment of the ground and attic floors. The second centerpiece is a similarly patterned metal screen with a bulge on the upper floor to fit the contour of the bathroom accessory. The centerpieces define the project expressively.

The success of the design is a testament to the architect’s commitment to the craft. His daring to go all the way with a vision this bold is refreshing and thoroughly deserving of an award.
