The Philosophy – Sculpting Spaces in the Tropics
Mr. Aamer Taher’s designs are well known for their ‘flair and curves’, its playfulness, and the 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 the client’s brief intact and with due care to cost efficiency.
Mr. 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 was a council member of the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) and a part-time design tutor in the School of Architecture, National University of Singapore (NUS).
AAMER remains a cutting-edge boutique design firm providing a full range of architectural design and professional services including master planning, interior, and landscape design with a dedicated team of professionals.
AAMER have sculptured various luxury residential projects [from good class bungalows to inter-terrace properties], conservation shophouses, 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.
“Sculpting Spaces in the Tropics, 13 Houses in Aamer Taher’s Design Journey” 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.
