1 August, 2019
Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) bestowed a total of 22 accolades at its award programme SIA Architectural Design Awards in July during its annual dinner held at the Resort World Sentosa.
After skipping 2018, the 2019 edition of the award programme resumed with six new categories that were introduced to streamline building classification, as well as to encourage innovation of material use, construction detailing and building sustainability.
The six new categories are Low-Density Housing, High-Density Housing, Urban Interventions, Innovation: Material and Construction Detailing, Detail for Sustainability, and Exhibition Design.
The award entries were judged based on their originality and innovation, sensitivity to context, sustainability, response to climate, response to users’ need, and elegance of construction and detail.
Winner of the Residential – Low-Density Housing category, House Above 44 Kasai Road by ipLi Architects took home the award’s highest accolade, the Building of The Year Award.
The house is lifted above its undulating landscape, like the olden day’s stilted kampong houses. This strategy has created a delightful spatial experience as one ascends to the house from the entrance.
“Internally the spaces are well-crafted and well-ventilated with light-well that facilities the discharge of hot air accumulated within the house,” praised the jurors, who unanimously agreed that the building is “a very fine and unpretentious building with spartan materials used to achieve many ‘ends’ and is a masterly handling of tropicality.”
