The Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) has announced the winners of the SIA Architectural Design Awards 2022 on 28 July 2022 at Resorts World Sentosa to give recognition to projects that exemplified excellence in architectural design, particularly those demonstrating responsiveness to new design sensibilities, environmental sustainability and well-being for users and inhabitants over the past two years.
Two projects, MeyerHouse and A Brick & Mortar Shop, were recognised as Design of the Year, the highest distinction of the awards programme. Ar. Melvin Tan, President of SIA and Awards Jury Chair, commented that it was deserving of having two award winners this year. WOHA Architects adopted skilful abstraction of complex residential development requirements to produce a deceptively simple form for MeyerHouse, while L Architects made use of sensitive and emotive designs to blend with a controlled and simple palette in A Brick & Mortar Shop.
A total of seven design awards and nine merit awards from four categories, including Residential Projects, Institutional Projects, Special Categories and Interior Architecture, were selected from a shortlist of 23 projects of renowned firms and emerging practices by an independent jury of local and international industry professionals.
“The jury has noted an encouraging uptrend of design sensitivity, responses to our tropical climate and a keenness to designing and building sustainably. With so many great designs, it was kudos to the jury members, who poured in their heart and soul to deliberate the decisions and uphold the value of the highly regarded SIA Architectural Design Awards,” said Melvin.
