ABOUT ARCHITECTS 61
Founded in 1974, Architects 61 remains one of the most established corporate architectural practices in Singapore. Over the past decade, the firm has been awarded approximately a hundred local and international awards – including the first Singapore President’s Design Award for the Fullerton in 2006-2007, and on the back of being responsible for in excess of S$30 billion worth of completed projects entailing over 100 million square feet of Gross Floor Area. Singularly, the practice has contributed to the unique Singapore CBD skyline more than any other practices.
Today Architects 61 has amassed a considerable portfolio of works under the umbrella of High-Grade, High-Rise and High-Density large-scale developments (The 3H) describing Architects 61’s core competence focusing almost exclusively on High-Rise, High-Grade Commercial Office, Commercial Retail, Hotel and Residential Apartment developments. Marina One represents a new major milestone in the practice’s history for being the largest project undertaken culminating and celebrating its 40th year anniversary as the premier architectural practice in Singapore with a regional presence.
ICN Design International Pte Ltd is an award winning Landscape Architecture Consultancy covering the full range of services from landscape master planning to project completion. We strive toward an ‘integrated environmental design’ where all contextual, environmental and aesthetic design issues are a process towards well considered and compelling designs.
The passion of Henry Steed and Terrence Fernando for landscape design and the natural environment was the motivation behind the company, which they developed into ICN Design International. The company has been responsible for bringing to fruition every type and scale of landscape imaginable, from parks, waterfronts, city centre civic design, nature trails and conservation of natural environments, to exotic hotels and residential gardens in Singapore, Asia and the Middle East.
For ICN, the making of landscapes is a multi discipline creative design process that goes from bedrock to the foundations of construction, technology and horticulture. Only then can new landscapes come together to make sensational places that look terrific and work well.
