The results of this year’s annual SIA Architectural Design Awards were announced on the evening of 1 October at an awards ceremony held in Singapore’s Raffles City Convention Centre, with the title of “Building of the Year” going to Extended House by Formwerkz Architects.

Organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), this year’s award submissions were evaluated based on attributes such as originality and innovation, sensitivity to context, sustainability, response to climate, response to users’ needs, and elegance of construction and detail.

Lucky Shophouse by CHANG Architects – “Best Project Constructed Under $1.5 Million”

Commenting on the jury’s decision to award Extended House the title of “Building of the Year”, SIA’s President Theodore Chan says: “The project demonstrated inspiration, sensitivity and courage in that the Owner and Architect made a collective and considered decision to retain the 1970’s architecture of the existing building, creating something new to complement the old.

Their decision to do so was the central theme of the project and created a fresh spatial and architectural dynamic between old and new. Using simple, cost effective building material and finishes, so much was achieved with so little. This is a true hallmark of a great design. In the wave of today’s throwaway mentality, the project demonstrated an attitude of true sustainability of adaptive re-use.”

The other top honour went to CHANG Architects’ Lucky Shophouse, which was awarded “Best Project Constructed Under $1.5 Million”. Both Formwerkz Architects and CHANG Architects took home more than one award this year.
