In this issue

Singapore is well into Phase 2 of the reopening of its economy, yet, many of us continue to work from home and, based on the manpower surveys, seem to be happy to keep this up. Consequently, our abodes have become the new centre of our lives, which is why this issue is themed upon residences.

In curating eight of them from Singapore, Malaysia, China and Europe, we hope that some (or all) of their unique elements will inspire you when you design your next residential project. On the cover is the award-winning Casa A by Portuguese firm REM’A Arquitectos. It uses sustainable wood, arranged in a diagonal pattern, to sheath its upper volume, and has deep triangular voids that blur the boundaries between indoors and out.

Don’t miss the report featuring products that would have been launched at Salone del Mobile, if it had been held this year. There are some beautiful, eco-friendly and technologically-advanced pieces worth including in your next project.

Real estate has also been dedicated to Dr. Chang Jiat Hwee, an Associate Professor at the Department of Architecture in the National University of Singapore, whose areas of interest include modern architecture. He has contributed a piece on how such buildings are actually more ubiquitous than we realise in Singapore.

Finally, an update on the magazine. We will be adjusting the frequency of our print edition and our next issue will publish in November (the last one for 2020). From 2021, we will become a quarterly instead of a bimonthly. Do continue to keep up with us via Facebook and Instagram; check in with our website for design and architecture news and projects from around Asia. We look forward to remaining connected with you in the digital space.
