Singapore – Aamer Architects has become the winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of The Best Luxury Architect and Interior Design Studio in Singapore. Aamer Architects is headed by acknowledged architect Aamer Taher, born in 1962 in Singapore. His professional career started in 1987 when he graduated from the National University of Singapore. In 1990 Aamer completed a Master of Architecture degree at the Architectural Association in London and, after two years of practice, returned to Singapore. There he established Aamer Architects, a boutique architectural firm that aims to reconcile beauty and purpose in design. Following the founder’s views, the firm considers design as a combination of factors including site, climate and culture, structure and services with an economy of means to arrive at an aesthetic whole. Backed by high-quality service and management support, this combination then results in unconventional architectural projects and ensuring clients’ satisfaction. Aamer’s recognizable tropical architecture addresses light, shade, landscape with sculptural forms reflecting the master’s subtle artistry.
The cutting-edge boutique design firm Aamer Architects has received various awards and accolades in architecture and design throughout its existence and winning the trust of clients. The experts of Luxury Lifestyle Awards strongly support this recognition, as each project of Mr Taher and his team has its own unique and remarkable features.
For example, the first project by Aamer Architects, the Telok Kurau House, features a captivating variety of shapes bursting with vivid yellow elements (representing happy children living in the house), and tendency towards freeing up the semi-detached house by separating the building block from the party wall.
Another of Aamer Taher’s works is Queen Astrid Park featuring eye-catching dark-stained timber panels with a chevron pattern on the façade and on the walls within the house, an idyllic pool area, and much greenery in and around. The award-winning project of tropical house Branksome Road 60 is designed to fit into a relative narrow bungalow plot and becoming a perfect family home. The skylights and courtyards allow the natural light and ventilation to penetrate the whole area of the house. Among the main materials are raw ‘off-form’ concrete and bamboo that forms dramatic lines serving the functions of security and sunshade; parts of the walls and ceilings in the basement are made of tropical hardwood providing good acoustics.
Besides creating designs for luxury private homes, Aamer Architects has taken part in the development of architectural designs for example for (clustered) villas projects in Singapore, a school in the Maldives, a 40-storey development featuring offices and residential units in Malaysia, and – one of the recent works – St John’s Home for Elderly Persons in Singapore, a new comfortable Home with intimate spaces and conducive environments with lush greeneries.
Every design project by Aamer Architects is a ‘one-of-a-kind’ due to the uniqueness of every setting, the site, the environment and each client’s specific requirements. But still, there is something constant in all works of Aamer Taher and his team. It is the desire, every time, to try new ways and forms when creating beautiful buildings that resonate with Life!
