How does research play out in your design, especially in the context of COVID-19? Research is the means to create new knowledge and to evolve new solutions to design challenges. As designers, we need new ideas; and research will help us to relook an issue or problem through a different lens and open new possibilities. Research fills knowledge gaps within the practice; hence, a way to develop our craft and design a creative business edge.

An example is our investigation in the shifts in residential design due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We conducted several surveys during the circuit- breaker


period to understand the


behaviours, challenges and needs of working from home. From the findings, we reimagined apartment layouts and redesigned threshold spaces to serve as buffers or swing spaces to balance the needs between work and rest, private and public, and single-use and multiple-


uses. In doing so, we were able to achieve a series of connecting living spaces for flexible use, and different configurations or compartmentalisation within an apartment. Through this investigation, we also mapped out a Home Attributes Matrix to assess and measure residential design quality in Singapore, applicable for both public housing and private apartments, as a means of quantitative design benchmarking to raise the bar of residential design.
