It is not the death of bricks and mortar retail. Far from it. It may be on the decline these days, but it’s not going anywhere.
Fosters + Partners Apple store at Orchard Road
Foster + Partners recently opened one of their “greenest Apple spaces yet” here in Singapore. With he highest density of trees, we are officially the greenest city in Asia. We can’t help but feel proud of that. It’s great to see efforts of sustainability from different corporations.
Love the trees, like the ones in the Regent Street store.
Both are crucial in our trade of business, especially in ours, where hazards and accidents have a higher rate of happening. It is good to be aware of the certification/acknowledgements of the companies you’re interested in engaging, and know that you can be at ease.

“To design an experience is not an easy task. It requires the control and mastery of multiple fields and the ability to weave them together into a single experience, like different engineers working together to create “the posh experience” of a Porsche.” – Ong Tze Boon source
Although experience design has been around for some time, it still feels a bit foreign (to me, at least). But it certainly can transform businesses, as ‘it advocates using the concept behind the brand as a way to identify and define value for customers in ways that can be differentiated in the way that products and services deliver value.’ source
wiki definition of Experience Design (XD):
An approach to the design of products, services and environments based on a holistic consideration of the users’ experience. Experience design is therefore driven by consideration of the ‘moments’ of engagement between people and brands, and the memories these moments create. Also known as experimental marketing, customer experience design, experiential design, brand experience.
Having a keen observation is one of the best things you can do in any situation. In this case, is to develop a rich understanding of the customers’ perspectives by researching and asking questions that can help us design the experience that speaks to customers. So we can form an ideal experience through interior design which fuses human and environment interactions seamlessly. We are always striving to influence outcomes with our designs and in turn, aid our clients’ businesses.
Experience Design is definitely an area we would love to delve into, to better service our clients and prospects.
“If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.”
It’s always good to come across repurposed locations that enable us to see them in a new light. The Jane Restaurant in Antwerp, Belgium is one good example. I stand for their intention to preserve most of the environment, which was the result of a seamless fuse between history and the contemporary fittings. It produces a cozy yet formal architecture that would be appealing to most. The original ceiling, especially, is a solid piece of history that cocoons the interior and provides a subtle reminder of history for the people.
Would love to visit someday.
