This two volume slipcased monograph presents a comprehensive portrait of the works of Singaporean firm Bedmar & Shi. Established in 1986, Bedmar & Shi is known today as one of the most successful high end residential architecture firms in the South East Asia / Pacific region. Volume One – `Thirty Years’ – thoroughly compiles the work done by the firm across a variety of programmes and scales, including shops & restaurants, houses & complexes, and shophouses & conversions. Beautifully illustrated with stunning photographs, sketches, working drawings, and perspectives of more than 150 extraordinary works, the book also features an in-depth discussion with founder Ernesto Bedmar, and an introductory essay by the design critic Byron Hawes. Volume Two – `Singapore’ – introduces ten of the most recent houses completed by the firm in this invigorated country, offering a unique understanding of the tenets of tropical residential architecture through Bedmar & Shi’s cultural and aesthetic interpretation of the vast socio-cultural melting pot that is that the majestic Garden City.Collectively, these two volumes provide a cohesive look at the wide-ranging output of one of Southeast Asia’s most prolific, and highly respected, architecture and design firms.
