The Young Designer’s Award is our endeavour to raise industry standards and encourage design students to explore the sub speciality of residential design.

Young Designer Award 2020
- Our Ultimate Intervention

For many of our local colleges, the taught curriculum focuses on commercial and hospitality design. At Design Intervention, residential design is our passion. We feel that by crafting people’s homes, their personal spaces, we can have the most impact: we can literally improve lives.

THE COMPETITION BRIEF

The Homeowners Profile:

The Premises:

The apartment is a 3000 sq. ft apartment located in downtown Singapore. It is an older development and the apartment had not been renovated since it was first built 40 years ago. The plumbing and electrics required a complete overhaul. There were a plethora of low hanging beams and pipes throughout the unit and the existing ceilings had been dropped to conceal them resulting in a dark and unappealing unit despite the abundance of space.
