Aedas, a leading international architecture and design practice, won the merit award outside Hong Kong in the Hong Kong Institute of Architect (HKIA) Annual Awards 2012 with its residential project 8 Napier in Singapore.
“Aedas is extremely proud that our international design is once again being recognised and awarded,” said Keith Griffiths, Member of the Board, Aedas International. “At Aedas we believe that great design can only be delivered by people with a deep social and cultural understanding of the communities they are designing for. This is why our team was able to come up with and realise, in architectural expression, a new concept of apartment living by creating a city sanctuary in one of the most densely populated cities.”
Nestled in the green and lush environs of the prestigious Napier Road within close proximity to the Singapore Botanical Garden, 8 Napier, designed by Aedas, redefines apartment living in Asia. In line with the qualities that make Singapore renowned in the world as a ‘Garden City’ – light, air, space and greenery – the clean and modern architecture of 8 Napier strives for serene simplicity with a choice palette of tasteful materials, green designs and a unique spatial concept. Standing at 10-storey high and comprising a total of 46 units, 8 Napier offers a superlative standard in apartment living with an indistinguishable boundary of indoor and outdoor living.
The integration of art and landscaping into the architectural design also serves as a perfect canvas for the sumptuous common amenities including a 50-meter lap pool, a gym, a spa, a BBQ area and a function lounge. The soaring lobby garden lounge accentuates the exclusiveness of the residences each furnishes with a private lift lobby, and the extensive use of clear glass ensures maximum light and view for every unit on every level.
Earlier this month Aedas also received a record 15 Asia Pacific Property Awards in one single year. Spanning across Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam, the projects were recognised for their design excellence. Beijing’s mixed-use development in Xihongmen, Da Xing District and Chongqing’s Starlight Place were the highest scoring winners and will compete against other winning companies across the globe in International Property Awards 2013 to become the ultimate World’s Bests.
