Singapore Wine Vault is a fine wine storage facility located in a food factory estate on the island’s far west.

The building’s metal wrapping acknowledges its industrial neighbours while veiling external services. The myriad perforations in this aluminium skin, inspired by the image of stacked bottles in storage and permuted from four pattern modules, abstracts and makes visible the building’s hyper-insulated interior function on the outside.

The drive up the ramped building, in being nondescript of space and place, preludes the surprise of arriving on the sixth floor to an unexpected calm oasis that is a water court. Over the quiet expanse of water the eye travels to a low skyline of architecture whose forms, proportions, junctions and surfaces are softened by both material elements and atmosphere.

Elements of nature are applied to built form and vice versa— such as when a forest of columns, rising from the paved floor carries on to grassed terrain to blend with trees.

The experience of spaces—really of water, bark, stone, light and open air that verge on various dining, lounge, work and social spaces is intensified by the counterpoint of this being an industrial site.
