Into The Woods
Into The Woods is a pop-up store located amongst the trees and waters in Singapore’s famous East Coast Park where many locals and tourists visit during the weekends to spend some time off from the city area.
This series of 3 module pop-up store’s main purpose is to promote and bring attention to Coleman’s new product - ‘Move it!’.

‘Move it!’ is a portable caravan designed for 2, targeted at a younger age group. Measuring 1800 x 2000 x 1900 mm, it is a very convenient camper to be moved around by attaching it to the back of a vehicle. For people who likes camping or road tripping, this is the perfect gift for you and your significant other!
‘Move it!’ is located in the middle module, being wrapped inside a cold hard concrete module block to heighten the contrast of environment. Two angled slits were made at the top part of two opposite walls to allow natural light to come through. The sudden contrast from its other well-lit glass modules is to arouse the crowd in East Coast Park and also create a vast different of ambience when visitors enter the concrete block. Created to be in the woods and connected to the nature,

Where Habitat is found
Habitat : the natural home or environment ‘ Habitat ’ is a half-submerged housing designed specially for 1 person’s lounging, suitably for an active middle aged. This concept came about from an umbrella installation. In my design, different shapes, forms and structure of umbrella will be revealed and taken creatively into making a housing in a natural environment. ‘ Habitat ’ is located in the middle of our local catchment water, Lower Seletar Reservoir whereby the waters collected in the reservoir will act as the occupant’s daily water supply after appropriate treatment is given. This location does not only benefit occupant the advantage of dirty water into reclaimed water, it also enables occupant to take time away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy the true enrichment of nature.
ROOF is a project based on travelling in a parallel world where I personally experience the life of Joe, in my own country. A city of skyscrapers is then redefined as a psychogeographic map of intangible relations. The Roof is located 25 storeys above a residential block in Little India, towering over the ethnic district.
towering over many shophouses and even buildings in this district. It is to help with their suppressed emotions and overcome their idea of intimidating skyscrapers that tower over them.
