Mercurio Design Lab Exhibits The Iliv@grange Medium Rise Residential

Mercurio Design Lab, the thinktank behind the highlighted project Award Winning iLiv@Grange Medium Rise Residential points out, Although the marketing of the building later suggested that its form had been inspired by the Calla lily, the shape actually owed more to the female human form - think Matisse's 'Blue Nude'. This results in the two intersecting elliptical fuses, true to MDL's philosophy, also hints at an underlying symbolism - perhaps symbol of infinity or number 8 which is propitious in Chinese culture. The highly sensual and curvilinear external form of the building complements the interiors, but also neutralise the building's scale disadvantage vis-a-vis its neighbours..
