A D Lab Pte Ltd
The architectural firm A D Lab Pte Ltd in Singapore was set up by Warren Liu Yaw Lin and Darlene Smyth. In year 2000, the pair incorporated Dlab 3, a small experimental design outfit that focused on cutting edge residential projects. Now renamed as A D Lab Pte Ltd, the research-based practice has grown in size and recognition and is centred on creating new or emergent experiences by addressing the specific site, economics and programme of each individual project. In all of the work by A D Lab, there is an intensive search for a convergence to a simple and elegant solution that evokes a sense of complexity and at the same time solves all the issues and concerns of the design in an economical and poetic manner. The design solution synthesizes parallel design objectives of the context, the cost, the programme and environmental concerns while giving the buildings their identities and expressions. Their approach sees architecture as an extension of a place and a context that addresses specific technological, geographical, programmatic, social, and economic conditions as an inter-connected system. The polymorphic nature of individual architectural projects is fully embraced to allow their complexity, uniqueness and the “now-ness” to emerge from that process. This process results in rich and unexpected experiences that resonate with the site and context.
