‘In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. By Time, indeed humanity is in a state of loss. Except those who believe and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of truth and in the mutual teaching of patience’ (Surah al-`Asr, 103:1-3)
"Professional Architect lives almost by faith. When called upon he can do the job without fear or favour. He possesses aspecialized skill and lives by a code of ethics cloaked in honour andintegrity. He is expected to speak his mind and give his views. Whenfaced with absolute wrong, he can resolutely disagree and walk away." quote from THE PROFESSIONAL MAN by Ar Dr Tan Loke Mun PRESIDENT PAM

It's quite a while since I last posted anything on my design works. So, these are some updates on RGP projects which reflect the office's skills on conservation developments.

The first entry on the project has been posted in this blog.

I feel fortunate to be given the opportunity to be a part of this special project. I've also learnt and got a better understanding of the process beneath the design. This project has opened up my mind on the perspective of old building; how one still manages to respect the old by introducing the new.

The following is one part of the design analysis done for the project.


Our approach has been to create a contemporary “feature” link at first and second floor levels with secondary links to the different levels at the front and rear of XX Street.

We have produced a number of 3D design sketches for the link to explore the design options. The link provides a contemporary contrasting structure when measured against XX Street and the Y building, but only touches the two buildings with the minimum of structure and minimum of interference with the building fabric.
 RGP have an innovative approach to architectural design. We have no dogma, no standard answers and we are spirited and fun to work with.
