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 architecture is an extension of his character.

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

The Firm

Aamer Taher established his Studio in 1994, two years upon his return to Singapore from London, where he trained in the Architectural Association School of Architecture and practiced with several firms including the prestigious Michael Hopkins and Associates.

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

AAMER remain a cutting-edge boutique design firm providing a one stop full range 1 of architectural design and professional services including master planning, interior and landscape design with a dedicated team of professionals.

The Works

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 doctors’ clinics in Singapore, high rise developments & bungalows in Malaysia and others farther away in Asia.

Indeed, more of AAMER’s unique designs, from residential to hotel projects to an a-typical 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 was involved in the design for an extraordinary Golf Clubhouse.

One of Aamer’s Clients described his works as “haute architecture” in the sense that they are like ‘haute couture’ or ‘haute cuisine’, custom- and tailor-made to each discerning individual….. thus 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 a first book recording Aamer’s most significant residential projects over a ten year period. The book comprehensively captures the intrinsic design philosophy of Aamer Architects.

Aamer Art Gallery
