SIA Architectural Design Awards 2021 – Interior Architecture

Merit Award

o The Hafary Gallery, Park + Associates Pte Ltd

The Hafary Gallery transports one’s inner child through a series of enchanted spaces judiciously crafted from tiles. Inside, tile finishes transcend mere surface coverings and adopts an experimental motif of employing tiles to define space. Retail experience thus surpasses monetary transactions, becoming one that is also tectonically educational and experiential.

Jury Citation:

This project challenges the typology of a tile showroom. The various spaces organized around “The Plaza” are whimsically themed to appeal to mass customers. Tiles are used in unexpected way on the floors, walls as well as furniture. Interesting detailing and fixing strategies resulted from these unconventional applications. The showroom transports the customers into a fantasyland where they are free to dream of many possibilities using this familiar material.
