Ministry Of Design’s Office

  • Client Ministry of Design,
  • Location Singapore,
  • Ministry of Design, whose work for Leo Burnett we featured recently, completed the design and construction of their own office space in 2010. Here are the project notes:

    “Inhabiting 6 converted shop house units at the confluence of Singapore’s historic Chinatown area and the CBD, MOD’s own design studio employs the same key principles which govern its approach to design – typological relevance, a disciplined material and tonal palette and an ‘essential’ concept. In searching for a locale to base its creative endeavors, we were determined to find a building large enough to accommodate our entire office on a single floor. We feel strongly that open communication is key to innovation and creativity; as such, our space would be without hierarchy or barriers, a truly open office.

    Our work areas are intentionally pure black and white, which allows us to tackle the wide array of creative explorations against neutral foil. The library is finished in an unfinished timber and tectonically, it provides a more relaxed environment as a counter point to the rest of the space.”
