Our Space | 2019

 Block 81

Tiong Bahru Conservation Walk-up

Block 81 | 18th July 1955 to March 2019 | original construction 1937

5th November 2018 the en-block of Pearlbank came to resolution with owners receiving payouts for their properties. We had begun our search for a new location several months ago, enabling the purchase of a new apartment only 36 hours after the funds arrived. We will be acquiring the keys to Block 81 #02.65a on 14th January 2019. Reconstruction of the unit will commence immediately. Expected move-in will be 2nd week of April 2019.

Over the next few months we will not be accepting any new commissions during this transition period. Work will continue on existing contracts.

Over the past 1.5 years we began the process of working in a new format. Staff are now located overseas, communicating and controlling their PC's in the Singapore Studio via Team Viewer + Skype. Thus our Singapore studio is reduced from 6 pax to only 2.

Watch this page, as we bring our new space at Block 81 to life with a sensitive restoration, befitting this historical neighborhood.
