The Clairoux team has just returned from an exploratory mission in Paris, Bangkok and Singapore to bring you the best 2020 trends for urban living. The goal: to be inspired by trends, from use of space to customer service. This article presents a foretaste of the different themes we’ll be presenting in the coming weeks.
Before boarding: an overview of trends in Asia
Looking at condo projects in Singapore, we’ve identified three trends.
First, an emphasis is placed on space optimization: Due to population density, a square meter of living space is extremely expensive. Human and urban sprawl are both issues for consideration and hot topics. Access and proximity to services have also become trends.
Singapore is home to the intelligent habitat or « Future Cities Laboratory ». This centre for applied research, which is also supported by Swiss companies, aims to respond to overpopulation problems in urban areas and the climatic requirements of tropical zones, by developing economic solutions. Here are the key areas in which they work: sustainable concepts and constructions, innovative materials, mobility solutions, and energy and water management solutions. This reflects the intelligent design concept advocated by Clairoux. The values are based on simplicity, durability, optimization, agility and evolution in design.
The importance of vegetation in Singapore
The third trend is to put plants at the heart of projects. Emphasis is placed on a return to nature, the integration of plants into projects and a view onto the myriad parks. Quality of life and air quality are a priority. It will be interesting to see how we can integrate this trend into Clairoux projects in the coming year.
Real estate development in Singapore, opportunities for the wealthy of this world
“With an average of $2,400 to $3,200 per square foot, the State of Singapore continues to develop the city with impressive projects. The relocation of container ports to nearby islands will allow the city centre to expand and residents to take ownership of the Strait’s shores. This visit allowed us to draw a lot of inspiration and will guide the creation of your future projects. Here is an example!
Salon Maison et Objet de Paris: A comforting and inspiring visit
Our presence at the Salon Maison et Objet de Paris enabled us to consolidate the design proposals achieved in the last year. As a matter of fact, our latest residential, commercial and real estate design projects perfectly reflect current trends. We also drew some ideas for our upcoming projects this year. The Salon Maison et Objet is an international player in the world of home, decoration, architecture, design and trends.
Singapore’s Changi Airport, a design destination in itself
Some places in life are truly impressive. An airport may seem like a rather conventional site, but not Singapore’s Changi Airport. This place offers a wide range of services to those who have time and money to spend: a huge doughnut-shaped shopping mall on seven floors awaits you, with a biodome and two impressive waterfalls at its centre. This is exactly where the shuttle bus, serving the different terminals, passes by.
