SCDA is a multi-disciplinary architectural practice established in 1995. Founding Principal and Design Director Soo K. Chan was the recipient of the inaugural President’s Design Award, Singapore Designer of the Year and is part of the Panel of Designers for Poliform. SCDA was awarded the inaugural Royal Institute of British Architects Award for International Excellence (2016); the RIBA International Award for OneKL (2012) and the Lincoln Modern (2003); and the SIA-Getz Architecture Prize for Emergent Architecture in Asia (2006), in addition to nine Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Awards.
SCDA’s designs strive for tranquility and calmness qualified by space, light and structural order. Architectural expressions are distilled to capture the spiritual essence of ‘place’. Its architecture and interiors are inspired by the cultural and climatic nuances of its context, integrating landscape, water features and blurring the distinction between interior and exterior. Spaces are often characterized by lush gardens, water courts and air wells, engendering a sensuous engagement with the elements. Projects display sensitivity to the inherent beauty of natural materials expressed through clarity in construction details and elemental architectural expression.
SCDA projects have set benchmark sales prices for high-end luxury level condominiums in Singapore. These include The Ladyhill, The Boulevard Residence, The Marq and Nassim Park Residences.
