SERdA is a design studio.
SERdA started off as a platform to exchange ideas and thoughts by a group of like-minded people, exploring the realm of possibilities in architecture and design, as well as its omni-potent prospects reaching beyond art, culture, philosophy, socio- politics, and economics. Its ever-expanding landscape begs us to question the fundamental of life and livelihood, from all differing perspectives. Human nature, perception and sensation were found to always steer our discussions, more often than not, become the touchstone of our conversations.
This website is not a celebration of achievements, but rather a register of thoughts made tangible, for us to reflect upon, learn from and improve on. This website records our works from 2017 to 2023, hopefully portrayed in their most sincere essence. SERdA’s thoughts and notions; understanding and principles can be explored in these 37 selected projects, stretches from preliminary design articulation through to construction and completion. Various exploration involving genius-loci, materiality, personalisation, programmatic juxtaposition and spatial alteration are highlighted, and rationalised to eliminate nonsensical upon completion.
This website showcases SERdA's selected projects, arranged in a way to portray our contemporary ideals, chronologically sorted, so reader can make sense of the projects’ coverage.
