WINNER | OFFICE CATEGORY | SINGAPORE
The new office brings together its two architectural studios that were previously separately located, to reflect the company’s vision to provide a holistic design and specialist consultancy service.

WINNERS | OFFICE CATEGORY | SINGAPORE
Pangdemonium Theatre is an office and rehearsal space for actors working at the theatre company. The facility comprises a large rehearsal studio; a props store and workshop; a costume store and workshop; a main office; and spacious common areas for staff and actors.

MIMOSA FILINVEST MALL
Mimosa Filinvest Mall is located in a former foreign military base in north Manila, which was given back to the local government. The site is being developed into a new airport and a leisure centre, and the mall will be a significant retail attraction within the overall master plan.

The interior design strikes a careful balance between nature and the modernity, inspired by the surrounding coastline topography and Hainan’s pearl history.
WINNER| INSTITUTION CATEGORY | HONG KONG
REVITALISATION OF THE FORMER FANGLING MAGISTRACY
Architecture Commons Ltd
Revitalization of FFM relies on human centric programming, in which we played a pivotal role to shape with HKFYG. Like all courthouses FFM has separate circulations for the public, the prisoners, and the legal staff. The intertwining staircases and corridors are reconfigured to accommodate a clear conservation interpretation path for the public that works in tandem with the educational programme of the Institute. Three of the four jail cells were converted to mixed reality and AR workshops, while the fourth one was kept with it original flavor.
WINNER | OFFICE CATEGORY | INDONESIA
Sontani + Partners
Responding to the vision of the company, this office space was designed to steer away from the traditional office concept with designated desks and separated rooms. Instead, Buss-Allianz HQ tried to create an office with a café ambience or a co-working space. The design and layout encourage a collaborative and creative spirit between the workers. The materials and furniture scheme are chosen to create a casual, comfortable and welcoming atmosphere that can boost productivity.
WINNER | F&B CATEGORY | INDONESIA
Sudestada is a restaurant inspired by an Argentinian Street, serving savoury Latin American cuisine in the heart of Jakarta. Going to Sudestada is like coming into an original hip street, with a stretch of shophouses serving as a grill restaurant, a bar, and a café. Nostalgic and intimate vibes are the impression the design tries to create. The designer decorates the interior with Argentinian special items to recreate its local vibe, such as polo murals, ponchos, blue and white ribbons and a large photo of La Boca.
WINNER | OFFICE CATEGORY | INDONESIA
TOTO INDONESIA HQ
Field Four Design Office
TOTO Indonesia HQ’s design connects different cultures of Indonesia and Japan, capitalising different architectural tectonics and materials to create strong and flexible design concepts. The office is expected to represent the company’ s profile through the ambience of its interior, as well as a place where guests can learn and know better not only about the products but also the company itself.
