About The Winner

Aamer Taher’s designs are well known for their ‘flair and curves’. He views every carefully sculptured project as a work of Art, conceived through thorough appreciation of site, context and brief.

Aamer Architects’ design for our new Home was selected as one of the finalists in the Health Future Projects category, at the World Architecture Festival held in Amsterdam from 28th to 30th November 2018.

Take a look at our new Home!

Background

We have occupied 69 Wan Tho Avenue since the Home’s inception in 1958.  The lease on the land expired on 31 December 2015. We were granted a fresh 30-year lease beginning on 1 January 2016 for 3,300sqm, a part of the 12,000sqm of land we have long occupied. 

We are now building a new 5-storey building to maximise the stipulated plot ratio of 1.4 and increase our licensed capacity to 150 elderly persons.

The new Home will be located at 1 Willow Avenue, just next to the current Home.

Architectural Design Competition

Aamer Architects, reputed for their contemporary equatorial architectural designs, has emerged as winner of the Architectural Design Competition jointly organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) and the St. John’s Home for Elderly Persons between April and July 2016. The winning design is set apart by its distinctive facade character and efficient-compact building mass.

The Design Competition seeks to generate new and fresh ideas and secure the best design for its new five-storey building, providing facilities and services not only to its present Residents but to the elderly living in the surrounding precincts i.e. Sennett Estate, Potong Pasir, Joo Seng and Bidadari Town. The Home is envisaged to be an integrated service facility centre serving the needs of the elderly in the community as a Sheltered Home.

This two-staged competition saw 52 entries, where seven were shortlisted.  Aamer Architects' serrated profile plan and well-thought-out design was selected as the winning entry.

We Need Your Generous Support

The building costs $15 million. As at June 2020, we are still short of $3.4 million. We depend on the community to raise this sum.
