100PP is the latest commercial building by the Ministry of Design, located in the rougher part of Singapore.
Designed to be a creative epicentre for the emerging black collar creative class moving out of the central business district to more affordable light industrial districts, this building features higher ceilings and larger floor surfaces.
It faces the sea on one side and a motorway on the other. The balconies are arranged like steps across the different floors, so the building appears to be shifting away from the busy motorway. This also creates natural spaces for balconies and air-conditioned ledges.
Shifting the building laterally in horizontal stripes creates a series of stacked dynamic blocks, instead of a static singular block.
The Ministry of Design designed the architecture, interiors and branding. When experienced in totality, the project blurs the boundaries between predictable commercial space and rough industrial space, creating an exciting alternative as a creative workplace in the 21st century.
