I am an architect, I draw lines. Sometimes, they get built.
|The initial pencil drawing of the scheme|
|The completed building sits on a high verge with views of Singapore across the Causeway|
|Whenever possible, we delineated the various elements of the building with a shadow recess, a drop or a gap|
|The over-sailing roof modulates and unifies all the spaces and gives the building its final form.|
The 2-storey amenities block is linked to the offices by a series of bridges over a ‘street’.
|The roof turns down to become a rain screen for the street, the amenities are in the concrete structure.|
|The original idea used the gentle slope of the roof as a ramp to a look out station|
|The western facade is shielded with sun louvres to minimize heat entering the work space|
|An exploded axonometric showing the different components that make up this building, rainwater is collected for use in the toilets|
