About Aamer Architects


The Philosophy – Sculpting Spaces in the Tropics

Aamer Taher’s designs are well known for their ‘flair and curves’, its playfulness and departure of conformist shapes. Or one could say, his architectural designs are an extension of his character.

He views every project as a work of art, conceived through thorough appreciation of site, context and brief. Each design is carefully sculptured to good-humouredly fit into the site while keeping the client’s brief intact and with due care to cost efficiencies and value creation.

The Founder and The Firm

In 1994, Aamer Taher established his architecture firm, Aamer Architects, two years upon his return to Singapore from London. He had trained in the Architectural Association School of Architecture and practiced with several architecture firms including the prestigious Michael Hopkins and Associates.

Aamer Taher is a former council member of the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) and a part-time design tutor in the School of Architecture at the National University of Singapore (NUS).

Aamer Architects is a cutting-edge boutique firm in Singapore. With a dedicated team of architects, AAMER provides a one stop service from innovative architecture and house design, to other professional services including master planning, interior and landscape design.

The Works

Boasting an extensive experience in house design, AAMER have sculptured various residential projects from good class bungalows to inter-terrace properties, conservation shop houses, restaurants, a private cluster housing development with the “Malay–village” charm and even doctors’ clinics in Singapore. Other projects include high rise developments & bungalows in Malaysia and more farther away in Asia.

More of AAMER’s unique designs, from hotel projects to an atypical health care project “St John’s Home for Elderly Persons”, will come to life over the coming years in vibrant Singapore and beyond. In Guilin (China), AAMER’s involved in the design for an extraordinary golf clubhouse.

A client described Aamer’s works and architecture style as “haute architecture”, in the sense that they are like ‘haute couture’ or ‘haute cuisine’, custom- and tailor-made to each discerning individual. Thus, making his designs all uniquely different from each other.

As Aamer says; “We are not angular and straight. Nature is not angular and straight.”

“Sculpting Spaces in the Tropics, 13 Houses in Aamer Taher’s Design Journey” [2011] is the first book detailing some of Aamer’s most significant architecture and design projects over a ten year period. The book comprehensively captures the intrinsic design philosophy of award-winning Aamer Architects.

Aamer’s Art Gallery

Besides designing and building projects, Aamer Taher also devoted time to creating numerous art pieces that include oil paintings, canvas drawings, clay pots, wall paintings at the clients’ premises, amongst others.
