SAA Architects (SAA), a member of Surbana Jurong Group, has won Silver in the healthcare category for their project, St. Joseph’s Home, at the World Architecture News (WAN) Awards 2019 on 5 November 2019. This is the highest accolade received by a Singapore firm at the awards.
Operated by the Catholic Welfare Services, the Home provides nursing and hospice services for the elderly, regardless of race or religion. The design is guided by the Catholic Welfare Services’ philosophy in maintaining a person-centered home that upholds the values of human dignity.
“In designing St. Joseph’s Home, our design approach focused on three key pillars—designing for community, mobility and dignity. Each aspect of the design places residents’ well-being at heart; providing for their mobility, engagement and comfort, and enhancing the total quality of care they would receive,” said Michael Leong, Director of SAA.
