Located in Singapore, The Niven Road Studio by Wow Architects | The Hardt
Located in Singapore, The Niven Road Studio by Wow Architects. The Niven Road Studio is a historic secondary settlement conservation site where the existing 2 story building is conserved with a tall rear extension comprising a Basement, Three Stories, and an Attic. The tall rear extension provides a new back entrance at the hilltop while the main entrance remains on the fully preserved front façade facing the heritage street at ground level. The conservation strategy of juxtaposing old and new develops the project into a 21st-century heritage building. Designed for minimum visual impact from the heritage street, the rear extension comprises three levels of double height space screened from the East and West sun by deep vertical fins. Today, Niven Road’s memorable days are a nearly forgotten reality as its public institutions have moved away, been demolished or closed down over the past decades. Yet hope is not lost as with change come opportunities for a community to evolve.
