Tan’s Garden Villa by Aamer Architects, photo: Sanjay Kewlani
Back in 2001, the Owner, Mr Adrian Tan, commissioned Aamer to design his house(s) at No 42. There a large bungalow plot was divided into two to accommodate separate but identical houses which won the prestigious Singapore Institute of Architects’ Design Award in 2004. Some ten years later Adrian acquired the plot next door, No 40, with the intention of building another home and thus having three houses; one for themselves and one for each of their two grown up sons with their future families.

London-based architectural office Wilkinson Eyre have delivered the Cool Conservatory Complex at Singapore’s show-stopping Gardens by the Bay project
London-based architectural office Wilkinson Eyre have delivered the focal point of Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay project, a key part of the government’s vision to transform the island state into a ‘City in a Garden’.
The Cooled Conservatory Complex, at the heart of a 101-hectare site that comprises three distinct waterfront gardens, consists of two large-scale glasshouses, which, covering 20,000 square metres, rank among the biggest climate-controlled structures in the world. Each environment has its own distinctive character – one features a dry climate (the “Flower Dome”), the other a cool, moist one (the “Cloud Forest”) – and examines the relation between climate change and horticulture.
‘Boya’ lamp by Outofstock for Environment
The international design collective Outofstock has just shared with us their latest project – this small, reclaimed-wood table lamp called ‘Boya.’ Produced by the US manufacturer Environment, the design was inspired by the form of marine buoys (hence the name) and it was launched earlier this year during Milan’s Salone del Mobile fair.

Orcadesign's 'Sleeve Lamp Table', which marries two traditionally discrete object types – the table and the lamp
Singapore-based multi-disciplinary design consultancy Orcadesign showed their ‘Sleeve Lamp Table’ recently at the Interieur 2010 design biennale in Kortrijk, Belgium. The continuation of the table surface up into a curved form that houses a delicate light source is both sculptural and interesting on the level of design typology – here, two object types (table and lamp) become conflated.
