The warehouse loft inspired development Martin No.38 by SC Global Developments has been conferred The Presidents Design Award 2012, Singapore’s most prestigious design award. This notable award is the development’s fourth major accolade since its completion earlier this year.
In June, the development was awarded both the prestigious ‘Building of the Year Award’ and the top Design Award within the residential category (apartments and condominiums) at the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) Architectural Design Awards 2012. The SIA ‘Building of the Year’ award is the highest accolade conferred by the Institute, awarded across all categories of developments.
In October 2012, the development went on to receive global recognition at ‘The World Architecture Festival’, the world’s largest architecture awards where it was conferred “Best Housing Project (Completed Developments)”.
Designed by Kerry Hill Architects, the industrial aestheticism of Martin No. 38 was inspired by the warehouse lofts of Lower Manhattan in New York and combines an urban architecture of raw concrete and base metal finishes celebrating the rich textures and unadorned beauty of materials in their natural form.
Martin No.38’s original architectural design, with its meticulous detailing standards and unconventional take on luxury within a contemporary environment has evoked much interest within the international architectural and design community since its completion earlier this year.
“To receive The Presidents Design Award is a wonderful end to an incredible year for Martin No.38. To receive four prestigious accolades in one year is testament to our commitment to create original lifestyles for our clients and it is gratifying to see the hard work of our architects, design team and project partners recognized in this way,” said Mr. Simon Cheong, SC Global Chairman and CEO.
“It is always a pleasure working together in a creative exchange with Kerry Hill Architects; they are extremely talented and share our constant pursuit for perfection and commitment to design excellence.”
