Our work form part of an exhibition at ARCHI-DEPOT Museum in Tokyo running from 6th of February through to 6th of May 2019. In conjunction with the exhibition, our principal is invited to speak at the ‘Commemorative Talk’ at the museum on the 23rd of February 2019. Also speaking are Indonesian architect Andra Matin and Japanese architect Fuminori Nousaku.
We have just completed an interior fit out exercise for a research institute in Kuala Lumpur where workspace partitions are crafted from industrial polycarbonate sheets and acoustic fabric panels framed with laminated rubberwood. Rubberwood are obtained from rubber trees and is considered an eco-friendlier source of timber than other hardwood types as they are faster to grow and are often leftovers from plantations after their ‘trees have ceased producing rubber sap’. The semi-translucent polycarbonate panels of the partitions provide privacy to workers without cutting off visual connection completely.
Pleased with the efficient ‘mock’ assembly of timber modules at the workshop, the Meranti Pavilion is now ready to be disassembled and shipped to Orlando for the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017. The pavilion will be placed at the expo hall booth 1147: Malaysian Timber Council.

An update of one of our current projects working in collaboration with SGFA Gallery and SABD Taylor’s University. A workshop was held at the Timber Lab at Taylor’s recently with participating students to test the pavilion’s connection details based on traditional wood working methods.
