Coast & Co

Part bike shop, part cafe, Coast & Company is home to a collaboration between local bicycle brand Coast Cycles, and independent coffee boutique Papa Palheta. Located in Siglap, the client envisioned it evolving into a hub of communal activity within the neighbourhood.As both a bike shop for enthusiasts and a cafe hangout for the uninitiated, we needed to seamlessly incorporate the various functions of this multi-programme space. For a democratic atmosphere, we chose the concept of a cafe surrounded by biking activity. Approaching from the main entrance, one sees the cafe first and foremost, with the repair workshop in the background. Large windows line the left wall for a view of the side lane where customers can test ride the bikes. The space also has a first floor side door for easy access to the workshop, and a gallery-like showroom on the upper floor with its own garden to create the perception of a ground floor space. Keeping in line with the brand identity and to create a muted backdrop for the bikes, the general aesthetic is raw and minimalist, with a spattering of greenery.

KYO

The basement of Keck Seng Tower along Cecil Street is home to Kyo, a 6000 sq. ft dining and club space in the middle of the CBD. Befitting its location, FUUR designed Kyo as a cave-like space with modern Japanese aesthetics, dressed in a palette of warm colours and contrasting dark shades of steel and wood. Kyo is spatially anchored by its 24m long bar, which serves as a device for framing views and creating zones.

Jekyll & Hyde

Functioning as a nail salon by day and a cocktail bar by night, FUUR saw the tension between the two components of the space as an opportunity to create something interesting in Jekyll and Hyde.Taking inspiration from alley bars in Tokyo and Melbourne, we came up with the concept of an “internal street”, giving the nail salon its own enclosure that could be screened off after business hours, and allowing the cocktail bar to infuse the “street” with its own clientele and energy. We also flipped the positions of the bar and nail salon, originally envisioned by the client to be at the front and back respectively, so as to obscure the bar from the entrance and main street. To enhance the indoor/outdoor atmosphere of the space, a set of wooden ceiling rafters stretching across the entire length were installed, and concrete walls with patterns were cast, adding a certain surrealism to the space.

Jigger & Pony

FUUR designed Jigger & Pony with the vision of creating a classic speakeasy bar with a modern twist. Seeking to incorporate the park across the road into the design of the space, pebble wash flooring was employed to create an outdoor feel, while a continuous ledge joining up with main island bar was devised to draw people in. The space was made cozy yet playful with teak furniture contrasted with bright pops of colour.

TOTO showroom

When designing the TOTO Showroom along Bukit Timah Road, FUUR had two main objectives – to integrate the TOTO brand identity into the design of the space, and to keep the focus on the products. To achieve this, a lighter colour palette and an open plan were favoured so as to avoid drawing attention away from the products and to allow for the space to take on a graphic quality. The showroom was organized into multiple zones and mock up areas displaying sanitary products in interesting ways, and standalone ‘totem’ pods were used to house toilet bowls and related accessories.
