inQbox, which stands for incubation in a box, is an uncluttered store in a Singapore mall that is stacked with well-lit, attractive shelving units. It rents out 'boxes' to small businesses and artists, providing them with retail and gallery space, and taking care of the daily hassle of retail. Prices for a box start at SGD 80 (EUR 40/USD 50) per month, depending on size and location within the store. Vendors are selected carefully, and the store is popular with shoppers for its unique array of wares. And lots of shoppers means valuable mini-real estate, so there's often a long waiting list for boxes. " to find out more...

We use state-of-the-art digital tools to explore and refine our designs, but sketches and models play an equally important role, and we believe that a hands-on approach is the best way to explore massing, space and light. We are passionately committed to producing the most sustainable buildings possible, always striving to exceed current standards for energy efficiency and environmental performance. To achieve this, we draw on the widest knowledge base possible. We collaborate with other architectural practices and benefit from the expertise of the industry's foremost consultants and contractors, constantly looking to related disciplines and new technologies to develop our designs to the optimum standard. At the same time, we do not prioritise novelty over performance, and will use more traditional technologies or materials if they offer the most appropriate solution." to find out more...

"Any serious architecture and design firm is going to first expect that someone is going to deliver on time and get the designer's point across. Goes without saying, really. They pull together a stable of folks that they know can deliver. After that, it's absolutely positively 100% ALL about the style of the individuals involved, and what might be the best fit for that particular project.Having worked as a designer at 3 out of the 4 firms above, I can tell you that each one gets a ton of viz people that call them searching for work. Without question, they select and work with those individuals or firms who set themselves apart by their visual style. They don't look at the endless resumes, DVDs, and websites and first ask themselves 'Gee, I wonder if this firm is going to convey my intentions properly?' or 'Will they deliver on-time?' They select firms that blow them away. American. Chinese. Indian. British. Whomever and wherever doesn't matter." to find out more...

Fundamental to this is the belief that good design comes from the following:
Understanding our client's needs;
Involving our client in major decisions;
Responding appropriately to a project's tangible and intangible context;
Considering the project's long-term viability and contribution to society;
Respecting our limited natural resources.
Providing inspiring, innovative and sustainable solutions to complex challenges is what drives us each and every day." to find out more...
