The Eighty-Eight Development presented a unique opportunity for the S. design team. Working closely with our savvy clients, the project scope evolved to incorporate a mixed-use programme that included a commercial tenancy on the ground floor and a private terrace apartment above. Balancing commercial viability against a set of heritage parameters, this project required a number of design iterations to reach the perfect balance. An elongated, narrow footprint, the layout of the apartment proved to be a challenge.
Through clever design thinking, the final design managed to pack two bedrooms, one bathroom and a functional indoor/outdoor space, enriched with exposed heritage details, a gesture to the historical value of the building.
