Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The houses in this book epitomize cutting-edge residential architecture in Singapore at the beginning of the 21st century and demonstrate a remarkable surge of design exploration in the city-state. Architects in Singapore are producing work with a level of refinement and sophistication that is comparable with the best in the world and one would be hard pressed to find a nation of comparable size with such an abundance of accomplished young designers who have built independently.

The houses include recent designs by doyens of the profession such as Sonny Chan Sau Yan, Kerry Hill and Ernesto Bedmar in addition to the firmly established "next" generation including Mok Wei Wei, Chan Soo Khian, Randy Chan, Siew Man Kok, Toh Yui Kwong and Wong Mun Shum and Richard Hassell. In addition there is a strong crop of relatively new practices headed by designers such as Brenda Ang, Lim Cheng Kooi, Yip Yuen Hong, Kevin Tan, Rene Tan, Ling Hao, Tan Kok Hiang and Chan Yong Ter. Alan Tay, Gwen Tan, Ko Shiou Hee and Teh Joo Heng, many of whom have broken away from larger practices to pursue their own architectural dreams.
