Credit Suisse’s ONE@Changi City campus designed by HASSELL is a sophisticated take on agile workspaces
On the corporate front, Credit Suisse’s campus at ONE@Changi City pushes the idea of agile, collaborative workspaces to its extremes. Designed by HASSELL, the office is the result of a series of in-depth trial roll-outs and engagement with staff members.
Other projects featured in this issue include a simple but elegant multi-generational home by Tan & Tsakonas Architects, a shophouse designed by OX:D and The Design Abode, as well as Como Hotel’s Point Yamu in Phuket by Paola Navone.
In our regular feature of design firms, we turn the spotlight on landscape architecture firm Salad Dressing and its principal Chang Huaiyan. Learn about how an encounter with master garden designer Made Wiyaja when Chang was an architecture student changed the course of his career.
Also making an appearance in this issue are Jaya Ibrahim, Carlo Urbinati, as well as local design heros Kelley Cheng and Adib Jalal. All this and more in this issue of Cubes Indesign.
