The houses include recent designs by doyens of the profession such as Sonny Chan Sau Yan, Kerry Hill and Ernesto Bedmar in addition to the firmly established "next" generation including Mok Wei Wei, Chan Soo Khian, Siew Man Kok and Richard Hassell. For those looking for new architecture or interior design ideas, Singapore Houses will surely add a unique, fresh element to their homes and projects.
