AIR+ SMART MASK AND MICRO VENTILATORS

Jury Citation: Lateral thinking, a spirit of invention and a rigorous design process informed every aspect of the design. The result is an utterly convincing product… the commercial possibility of this product has the potential to extend beyond Singapore.

ARCHITECT'S OFFICE AT KIM YAM ROAD

Jury Citation: The vaulted ceiling, part of an existing structure in a former school built in the 1960s, is emphasised and punctuated with black steel forms... The design also establishes the firm’s signature design expression: specific, refined, elegant.

DECK – PEOPLE, PLACE, PHOTOGRAPHY

Jury Citation: Overall, the project exudes a quality of space that few other temporary structures have achieved. Its very existence demonstrates innovation and resourcefulness in surmounting the problems of land scarcity and high leasing cost in Singapore.
