26 Everton Road, Singapore
THE 2000 KENNETH F.BROWN ASIA PACIFIC CULTURE AND ARCHITECTURE DESIGN AWARD PROGRAM - Honorable Mention
This "Row House" maintains the integrity of its traditional urban context in a forthright and contemporary way by rehabilitating the interior and re-introducing its light-well courtyard. The architectural detailing is elegant yet unimposing. The architect successfully balanced the concerns of the building's users and maintaining the historical fabric, thus avoiding the destructive nature of architectural interventions into existing urban sites. It is an excellent example of an old house accommodating society's changing needs.
