FROM THE IMAGINATION OF A VISIONARY ARCHITECT
Designed by renowned architecture practice SCDA, Rivière is a showpiece in mastering the elements of architecture – light, space, transparency, materiality and order. The residential towers are raised elegantly on structural stilts, framed by intimate gardens and sensuous water pavilions. The overall design aspires to the humanist qualities of serenity and calmness, giving poetic beauty to everyday moments.
Led by principal architect Soo K. Chan, the highly esteemed practice has received numerous accolades including the President’s Design Award, the RIBA Award, the SIA Architectural Design Awards and prizes from the World Architecture Festival for its extensive portfolio covering luxury residences, hospitality and cultural institutions around the world.
