Getting creative with Funan

It has been a busy couple on months as we go deep into the conceptual design phase of Funan Mall – the new social, creative and inspiring hub of Singapore.

Developed by CapitaLand Mall Trust, and working in collaboration with Woods Bagot, Funan Mall is a new destination for living, working and playing in Singapore’s city centre. 

Funan will offer a multifaceted experience, incorporating community, connectivity and convenience. An aspirational, experiential and always evolving space that fosters collaboration, sparking inspiration and discovery. 

The resulting new development scheme includes a unique program comprising three office and residential towers, with a six-storey retail, dining and lifestyle podium connecting the towers at the base. Aimed at appealing to tech-and socially-savvy consumers, the design of the mall presents a creative environment with distinctive fashion and lifestyle offerings for a one-of-a-kind experience that utilises technology every step of the way.

Funan will promote not only the technological but also physical connectivity through a porous and pedestrian-friendly design, drawing traffic from the outside via a series of strategic design moves, such as allowing cycling via integrated bike paths and multiple access points; a first for Singapore.

THERE have been enlisted to handle all wayfinding, signage, environmental graphics and placemaking for this ground-breaking development. We are excited at the direction the work is taking and look forward to sharing further updates with you as the project progresses.

THERE wins New York design award

THERE wins Interior Design ‘Best of Year’ award for Workplace Branding and Graphic Design.

 

Fresh off the bat of 2016’s AGDA’s and Sydney Design Awards, we’re also pleased to announce another big win in New York at the Interior Design Best of Year Awards for ‘Branding and Graphic Design: Workplace’. 

This one went to the sculptural installation at property giants Knight Frank’s Sydney HQ. Special thanks to Knight Frank for believing in the creative concept, Geyer for creating a beautiful space and to the incredible team of designers at THERE who brought the vision to life. 

In this project, THERE was tasked with interpreting the Knight Frank brand positioning to animate their new head office in Sydney’s CBD. At the heart of the new space was an Innovation Zone, an open, collaborative space where clients and staff alike challenge conventional thinking. THERE developed a super-sized sculptural wall, that whilst static, conveyed the idea of ‘constant change’. Geometric fins begin as an abstracted version of the company’s logo, but soon turn into a dynamic wall cladding as they undulate across its surface. You can see more about the project here and how we built the sculptural wall here.

THERE published in international Graphis Archigraphia Redux Annual

THERE is thrilled to find it has been recognised for outstanding design with a number of projects published in the new international book Archigraphia Redux

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the original Archigraphia publication, publisher Graphis asked Richard Poulin to revisit the concept with a new survey that celebrates the breadth of graphic design for the built environment in the 21st century. The projects featured in this 304-page, hardcover book demonstrate how the built environment that we experience in our everyday lives continually relies upon graphic design to communicate information and identity, shape our overall perception and memory of a sense of place, and ultimately enliven, enrich, and humanise our lives. 

Featured projects include the Australian headquarters of Suntory and 3M, along with the visual placemaking and facade enhancements for private gallery Garangula.

We congratulate the writer and publisher on this wonderful book and would like to thank our clients, collaborators and team for their efforts on the projects recognised in this important publication. 

Archigraphia Redux is published by Graphis, 2017
