Alocassia Apartments, Singapore

Design Proposal (2007)


We were tasked to transform a block of service apartments built in the late 1900s, into a contemporary residential development while retaining the existing structure.

Seeking inspiration from an unpolished raw amethyst, a ‘jeweled’ interior courtyard is carved out from the existing structure, to generate dialogue and visual interest between the exterior and interior as well as the old and the new.

Building Type: Residential
Location: Bukit Timah, Singapore
Site Area: 5550 sqm
Date: 2007
