  1. 1. CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS Role and Responsibilities Contribute articles to the company newsletter,• for online publication and print Organize company events including logistics• planning and publicity Participate in events for public relations• purposes Doha Festival City is an up and coming commercial development sitting on some 43 hectares located about 15km north of the downtown district. Doha, much like its well- known Middle Eastern counterpart Dubai, embodies a mix of traditional Arab customs with modern lifestyle and is slowly evolving into a metropolis of the Arabian Gulf region. Doha Festival City comprises a retail and entertainment hub complete with hospitality and business facilities, a theme park, and motor showrooms. The Doha Festival City Mall, with 500 retail stores and a gross floor area of 327,000 sqm, is the largest component of the development. It houses more than 8,500 car parking lots spread over structured car parks, basement car parks and surface parking spaces. The scale of the project and the immediate surrounds inspired the design concept of creating an extension of the vast desert site. This was also largely a response to the client’s brief of limiting water usage. It was essential to the concept to have a simple yet provocative exterior which paid homage to the desert and could also complement the more intricately designed interior concourse of the mall. The strategy was to create focal points at each entrance, all of which lie along the west- facing façade. Sand-coloured pre-cast concrete panels constitute the main façade element. Each entrance is then designed as a prominent Team Members Top picture: (standing left to right) John Alejandro, Taufiq Rusdi, Alfi Syahrifat, Rahmanto Dharma, Dimas Satria, Ahmmad Trisyarahman, Toh Sze Chong, Clyde Uriarte, Dzulkifli Noor, Daniel Floresca, Naga P Marimuthu, Nugraha Irsan, (sitting) Anna Narciso, Maureen Suryani, Dania Siska, Tan Cheng Pei, Anastasia Widyaningsih & Peach Phiengphis Phinichrungruengkri Bottom picture: (standing) Corazon Visayana, Dettamole Jose, Norazizah Hassein, May Chan, Tala Kammourieh, Sonya Kundi, Veronica Galleta Antones, (sitting) Loven Tolentino, Ramasamy Chandrasekaran, Patrick Deno Bonotan Desamparado, Gregorio Mesoga, Satish Rajan & Satrio Utomo Dradjat DOHA FESTIVAL CITY MALL RESPONDING TO THE DESERT LANDSCAPE By Mandy Too | Featured projects Right: The fashion atrium with its dome-shaped feature ceiling; natural light fills the main entrance lobby. THE SCALE OF THE PROJECT AND THE IMMEDIATE SURROUNDS INSPIRED THE DESIGN CONCEPT OF CREATING AN EXTENSION OF THE VAST DESERT SITE volume extrusion which was envisioned as a structure emerging from the desert land. The design concept extends to the exterior plaza where a sense of arrival and outdoor activities were incorporated with landscaping designed as a structured arid desert. The interior design challenge was to break down the massive scale of the mall and intrigue the shoppers to keep them moving. Four main zones were created with the intention of characterising specific retail segments of the mall. The largest of the four zones, Luxury Fashion, is designed as a circular atrium with a dome-shaped feature ceiling. The space is accentuated by natural light from high level windows on which the dome is elevated. The other three zones – Centre Court, Entertainment Centre and Market Place – are similarly distinguished by simple geometric shapes and characterised by different themes, making them uniquely identifiable. YEAR: 2015 | AREA: 434,000 SQM | QATAR DP 11 YEAR: 2014 | AREA: 107,050 SQM | MALAYSIA In conceptualising Impiana Resort Apartments, being a ‘prime-mover’ development, not only did the designers have to articulate spaces, they had the daunting task of visualising an image for the residences that befits Nusajaya as the premier integrated administrative, commercial and residential hub within the greater Iskandar development. Being a lush tropical enclave strategically located in between Johor Bahru city and Singapore, Nusajaya is also the new administrative capital of Johor Bahru developed under the Iskandar Malaysia master plan. It was integral to the design to consider the prestige of the address and also take advantage of the natural greenery of the site. Essentially, homeowners at Impiana Resort Apartments are not only buying quality spaces and amenities – they are buying a brand. The apartments are designed to have a resort feel with the intention of fashioning a luxury holiday. The overall planning is simple: the main axis of the site was determined in response to the neighbouring mall. The four blocks are arranged symmetrically from the main axis; each side of the axis having one 23-storey tower and one 11-storey tower. The residence’s main features and facilities are placed along the main axis; these include the main entrance and grand steps to the landscape podium with cascading waters alongside, and a gym perched over the Olympic-sized pool in the midst of tropical greenery. The units were designed to optimise three ideals of luxury living – light, space and joy; be it the smaller 610 sq ft studio apartment or the 2,300 sq ft penthouse. The living spaces of each apartment enjoy ample natural light from full-height glazing. There are no partitions between the living room, dining room and kitchen; the open plan allows fluid transition between spaces. Mr Yeoh Tok Jew, director of DP Architects Sdn Bhd, explains, “It was important that the quality of space and the enjoyment of views be carried throughout the apartment”.

IMPIANA�RESORT APARTMENTSLIGHT� SPACE�AND�JOY By Mandy Too The units were designed to optimise three ideals of luxury living – light, space and joy DP 09 A GARDEN RETAIL EXPERIENCE By Mandy Too FOR THE RESIDENTS The recently completed myVillage – a two-storey, two-basement mall nestled in the low-rise private residential estate of Serangoon Garden – placed utmost importance on the concept of a liveable building. The client’s brief was to have a mall tailored to the needs of the residents. Hence, myVillage was conceptualised as a welcoming garden courtyard that the neighbouring residents could ‘come home’ to. Sitting on the grounds where Paramount Theatre once stood, myVillage seeks to inject new life to the development. For a personal touch, the main Village signage of the mall even has the handwriting of some hundreds of residents (each of whom personally wrote the word ‘my’) inscribed on it as a permanent mark. The architectural strategy was to use natural elements at every level of the mall to create a recreational haven and evoke homely sentiments. An immersive garden experience was designed with the intention of providing the residents with a cosy retail environment: there is a sunken courtyard in the basement; an open backyard on the first storey; a sky terrace on the second storey; and a spacious garden on the rooftop. FIRST STOREY & BASEMENTS: WELCOMING GREENERY In conceptualising myVillage as a welcoming garden courtyard for the residents, it was an integral part of the strategy to assimilate with the surrounds. The planning constraints ensured that the height of the building would not impose on the low-rise nature of the surrounding context. Further to that, natural elements were consistently assimilated with the lush greenery of the surrounds. DP GREEN DP Green (DPG) is a multi-disciplinary practice that comprises architects, landscape architects and arborists, whose firm belief is that architecture and landscape are inextricably linked. Offering full landscape and arborist consultancy services, DPG creates landscape designs that respond to a site’s natural genius loci. FOR THE RESIDENTS OF SERANGOON GARDEN Architecture design is moving from aesthetically-motivated iconic forms to performance-focused ones. With improved technology, where the performance of a building design can be tested and measured, environmental efficiency now drives the design of buildings. Since DP Architects’ (DPA) founding in 1967, the firm has been guided by a deep concern for the built environment. This concern is now institutionalised in its practice. DP Architects’ objective is to make green design part of the firm’s DNA and take the green design process further than other industry leaders. The DPA green design process is not about adding fancy green trimmings for green’s sake or checking off an item list for green certification. Neither is it about harvesting renewable energy. It is about getting design fundamentals right. And doing so requires a pragmatic way of designing steered by an integrated, iterative process and supported by intelligent simulations, without which is just guesswork. The firm’s Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) department comprises architects, environmental engineers and building scientists who work closely with the design architects, enabling them to develop an environmentally and socially responsive built environment that will help mitigate its carbon footprint, as well as overall energy and water demands. The ESD team ensures that the development of the green building system goes hand in hand with the overall concept design of the building; it runs computer simulations and environmental analyses to assist architects in exploring eco- friendly building designs or assess existing buildings with the intention of lowering operation costs. While it is possible for the same role to be fulfilled by an external consultant team, there is the clear advantage of rapport and timeliness by integrating the ESD team with the design team in the same. This integration is key to DPA’s green design process. DPA’s green objective is supported by the formation of sister company DP Engineers (DPE). The ESD team takes on the role of design integrator in communicating the essence of the passive design features to benefit the active building engineering solutions. Working together in a holistic and synergetic approach, the ESD team and DPE enhance the sustainable design process and ensure that the most energy efficient mechanical and engineering solutions are integrated into its environmental designs. In the words of prominent Singapore architect and co-founder of DP Architects William S W Lim, “The future is challenging… What is important now is responding to the climatic crisis – in energy, in recycling or better, upcycling, and of course creating a definition for the current ubiquitous buzzword for all things green and good: sustainability. Not just environmentally, but also equitable economically and socially.” ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS IS A BASIC EXPECTATION IN THE ARCHITECTURE PROFESSION. DP ARCHITECTS TAKES IT FURTHER BY DERIVING A GREEN DESIGN PROCESS THAT IS UNIQUELY DPA Team Members: (from left) Li Qiaoyan Reza Motamedi Kia Lee Boon Woei Jaye Tan Shruti Pilare Michael Wahjudi Chan Hui Min The ESD team ensures that the development of the green building system goes hand in hand with the overall concept design of the building GREEN DNA | Design solutions DP GREEN WITH A KEEN RESPECT OF THE HUMAN SCALE, MYVILLAGE EMBODIES AN EVOLVED TYPOLOGY OF A NEIGHBOURHOOD RETAIL OFFERING THAT OFFERS NUMEROUS AMENITIES WITHOUT OVERWHELMING THE CONTEXT OF ITS SURROUNDINGS Above: The contextual scale of the building is echoed in the soft, low plantings at the entry point. Facing Page: The integration of landscape and architecture were initiated from the earliest concept sketches. DP 16 The seamless connection between interior and exterior influenced planting choices and material selection throughout the project. Geometrically arranged planter beds with abundant foliage of Terminalia Mollis trees surround the mall at ground level. The soft edge created by the planter beds along the periphery of the site composes an inviting frontage for the mall from each of the four roads along the boundary. It was part of the landscaping strategy to ensure that the greenery on the exterior is allowed to permeate the mall. The mall incorporates thoughtful details which materialise into a continuous garden walk, bringing external space in. These include the pattern on the outdoor walkways which seamlessly continue into the interior floor; All Rights Reserved. No material may be reproduced without prior permission.

Left: Natural light features prominently and is often filtered through a graphic of leaves to invoke the exterior environment. the glass canopy at the main entrance which bears imprints of foliage which simulate the Angsana trees found nearby; the same motifs used on skylights to cast leafy shadows into the atriums; and the vertical greenery comprising flowering vines, Clerodendron Thomsoniae and Philodendron Scandens, which clad the wall along which one descends into the basement via escalators. Natural light pours into the sunken courtyard in the basement which was designed to evoke feelings of warmth and comfort synonymous with being at home. Here, a stone-cladded water wall, timber-decked floors and décor of green plants add to the natural ambience for the enjoyment of alfresco diners. SECOND STOREY & ROOFTOP: ELEVATED GARDENS Shoppers on the second storey are given the opportunity to unwind on the sky terrace which wraps around the southwest corner of the mall, overlooking Farleigh Avenue and Sandown Place. On these two fronts, the elevated garden not only provides a green haven for shoppers on the inside; it also softens the façade by providing pockets of green on the exterior. The continuous garden walk culminates on a vast rooftop garden where mall patrons can enjoy unobstructed views of the neighbourhood. One can walk on the concrete pavers, pebbles and grass interspersed among the vast timber-decked terrace while appreciating the peaceful view of the suburban landscape. 

  17. 17. PRIVATE RESIDENCE Location Brunei Floor Area 10, 500 sqm Year of Design Proposal 2011 The client of this project was a large family of 12. The house that the family currenly resides in is located next to the site of the new proposal. The idea was to create a new home for the parents and 8 of the children, while the other 2 children remain in the current residence. The proposal for the new home consists of a central main residence - containing the Master Bedroom for the parents, guest bedrooms, the family room, dining room for the whole family, and the formal dining and living rooms to entertain guests - and 8 self-contained villas; one for each of the 8 children, connected to the main residence via air-conditioned walkways. The challenge of this project was to design to the preferences of each individual family member while unifying the whole residence. The proposal was to maintain the classical theme (favoured by the parents) for the main residence snd exteriors of the villas, but allowing the interiors to be individually expressed by each family member.

  24. 24. EMERGING IDENTITY National University of Singapore Year of Study 2008/2009 Urban Planning in today’s context is necessary and largely beneficial for large fast-paced cities as well as smaller growing cities. However, the highly complex process oftentimes does not yield the desired result because the planned profile of a place does not always align with the authentic identity of a place, and tensions arise. On the premise that it is not possible to plan for the identity of a place, I explore the idea that minimal planning will allow its authentic identity to emerge. My Master’s thesis ‘Emerging Identity’ is based on the idea of continual metamorphosis. The selected site is an abandoned theme park in Brunei, An a -priori masterplanning grid was juxtaposed on the existing conditions of the site, and a number of Clashes and Opportunities were identified as a result. The strategy of this hypothesis was to watch how it evolves over time by adding future expansions. The new buildings are forced to work around the existing conditions (i.e. Clashes and Opportunities) and react to them. What results could be a multi-layered responsive environment wherein each layer bears a quality that authentically emerged from the site conditions at the time it was built.

  29. 29. WORLD ARCHITECTURE FESTIVAL STUDENT CHARRETTE National University of Singapore Year of Participation 2008 Six universities were invited to compete in the student charrette at the inaugural World Architecture Festival in Barcelona. I represented the National University of Singapore in a team of five in a live student competition at the festival venue. Each team was brought to the site - an abandoned garment factory grounds formerly known as Fraba i Coats in Saint Andreu - and then given 2 days to generate conceptual ideas and present to a panel of international judges. The brief was to design a public recreational space that addressed the drought problem. Our proposal was to have three zones that each conserve water in a unique way. The Desert is the main rainwater collection area. The Tropics is the feature greenhouse with tropical raintrees. The Marsh Pit is playground with mouldable clay when it rains, which turns into hardened sculptures during the drought. The Desert World Architecture Festival Barcelona 22-24 October 2008

  33. 33. BRUNSWICK EXPLODED University of Melbourne Year of Study 2007 The design brief was to study the potential of the Brunswick district in Melbourne, Australia and propose urban design solutions to improve it. A large area of Brunswick was studied at a macro scale, and a smaller focus area was selected to demonstrate the urban design solutions. At macro level, it was found that most of the activities lie on the main streets which run North-South, while the East-West streets were lacking amenities and not well-connected by public transport. The proposal was to inject life into the East-West streets. This was demonstrated on Wilson Avenue by breaking up large urban blocks and extending it to create a promenade anchored by a green open space on one end and Jewel Railway Station on the other end. The following were proposed to enhance the street life: covered walkways• side walk cafes• street art• ‘active’ facades• increased commercial activity• street markets• Brunswick masterplan proposal

  35. 35. GRANT STREET PARK University of Melbourne Year of Study 2007 As an introduction to Urban Landscape Design, the class was asked to design a small park on Grant Street in front of a residential building. The class aims to explore basic concepts of Urban Landscape Design such as nodes, paths and proposed linkages. The proposal was to draw passer-bys into the park from the nodes at the corners by integrating an undulating path composed of varying ground textures. Seating is provided at the nodes in the corners and covered walkways link the nodes together. Features of the park include sculputural art pieces on which people can rest, and an educational water fountain which only functions when the rain gauge measures enough rain. Grant Street Park Plan
  36. 36. URBAN ART HOUSE National University of Singapore Year of Study 2008 The site of the project is Prinsep Street in Singapore. This street is characterised by a variety of activities ranging from the famed densely packed electronics mall, Sim Lim Square; to small-scale churches and student hostels. The masterplanning proposal was to enhance existing buildings and complement the area with additional retail activity, more student hostels, a library and a recreational park. An elevated street was proposed to boost connectivity between the buildings and cater for the increase in human traffic. Media walls were proposed for entertainment and advertorial purposes, as well as to provide horizontal and vertical connectivity. It also functions as a physical dermarcation to the district. The proposed Urban Art House, i.e. the parcel at the start of the district, is a hostel for art students. Facilities include a naturally ventilated bazaar on the ground floor; roof top cafes and an amphitheatre; an art gallery; and linkages to the adjacent electronics mall and art school.

  40. 40. STUDENT HOSTEL National University of Singapore Year of Study 2006 The brief was to design a student hostel in the One North development in Singapore - a 20-hectare development dedicated to world class research facilities in the fields of Biomedical Sciences, Infocomm Technology, Media, Physical Sciences and Engineering . The building is designed to be very permeable - having only two ‘faces’ and left open on either end; opening up to views and exposing the building to natural elements. The hostel rooms and other facilities are organized linearly along the faces of the building. The circulation spine is made up of unsheltered ramps in the centre of the building. The ramps sweep in and out of the building going beyond its walls and making the outdoor space part of the building experience. The corridors along the hostel rooms, on either side of the ramps, are made of structural glass allowing natural light to penetrate every level. View of Student Hostel from street level
