The SIA Architectural Design Awards is the most prestigious award conferred by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) to promote and encourage distinction in architectural design.

The Awards recognises the achievements of SIA Members in their pursuit of building excellence and innovation, and their contribution to broader conversations in architecture that are current in the world. The Awards also aims to heighten the appreciation and patronage of good architectural design from the architectural fraternity and the general public.

The Awards process will be entirely virtual, from entry submission, judging to presentation. This paradigm shift which started in 2021 gives us the opportunity to streamline participation processes, and importantly, to continue to engage with international jury and community. This will also encourage entrants to partake in the international shift towards digital and remote means of representing and presenting architectural design and narratives. We hope to shine the spotlight on projects that demonstrate design resilience, responsiveness to new design sensibilities, environmental sustainability and well-being for its users and inhabitants in these times.

The Institute invites all eligible members to participate in the SIA Architectural Design Awards 2022.

Citi Wealth Hub

This project is a manifestation of immersive landscaping and biophilia. The success of the interior spaces is many-fold. Firstly, the soaring day-lit banking conservatory is fully contextual and integrates seamlessly within the envelope of the glass house atrium. One would be hard pressed to believe this space was not custom designed for the garden. The symbolic nature of plants in terms of well-being and growth is unexpected but refreshing for banking interiors. The meandering paths, meeting pods and diverse interaction spaces created, question the norm for banking facilities. The designer worked closely with the landscape architect to ensure the sustainability of the plants, as well as careful plant selection to achieve a lush tropical backdrop.

The remaining interior spaces overlooking this central garden were efficiently planned and beautifully designed. The tasteful and impeccably detailed interiors are aspirational to both client and staff. The spaces work well for post-Covid working operations where open spaces and social distancing are required. This project is unanimously awarded “The Design of the Year.”
