Martin No. 38 hailed as Building of the Year

SC Global’s warehouse-themed apartment development – Martin No. 38 (pictured) has clinched the prestigious Building of the Year Award and the top Design Award in the residential category at the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) Architectural Design Awards 2012.

The ‘Building of the Year’ award is the top accolade given by the institute, which recognises developments from all categories including residential, commercial, institutional, industrial, infrastructure and transport.

Martin No. 38 is designed by Kerry Hill Architects, drawing inspiration from the warehouse lofts of Lower Manhattan in New York. Its design integrates an urban architecture of raw concrete and base metal finishes highlighting textures of the materials in their natural form.

“Martin No.38 is the most elegantly designed and well-crafted building,” said the judges who cited the development’s unconventional interpretation of luxury and its strong attention to detail.

“The form is clean and well-proportioned, providing sensible volumes to create good spaces and apartment layouts, beautiful lobbies, gardens and amenities. Without a doubt, the architecture of Martin No.38 is arresting in its clarity, rich in meaning, and is ultimately a timeless contribution to Singapore’s architectural heritage,” they added.

Two other SC Global developments were conferred Honourable Mention, meaning that the developer bagged two of the three honours within the residential category.

The ultra-luxurious condominium The Marq on Paterson Hill and the nine-storey Newton 200 building received Honourable Mention in the residential and commercial categories respectively. Both projects were designed by SCDA Architects.
