This book examines and celebrates more than thirty years of innovative work by Kerry Hill Architects, a studio with offices in Singapore and Fremantle, Australia. This multi-award winning practice established its reputation with a series of exotic resorts in locations throughout southeast Asia, and also designed a brace of exceptional houses in the same region. These have been widely regarded as part of an architectural lineage initiated by Geoffrey Bawa, recognizable in a shared response to location through climatic strategies, the use of materials, and their form of construction. Kerry Hill brings a deep understanding of the East to his increasingly refined contemporary architecture, and his work is made distinctive by the rich experience of his generous and tranquil spaces. This is an unparallelled view into the world and thinking of an architectural practice that richly deserves international exposure.
