“Bar room for reflection, contemplation and relaxation”


Bar room was a space within the premises of the State Courts catered for lawyers as they await their trial in the State Courts. Hence, it was a crucial space where the lawyers gathered their thoughts before they were summoned to the courts. We were engaged to propose the interior design for this crucial space that has been the provision of the former State Courts at Havelock Square.


The new State Courts was an important building designed by the world renown architect Moshe Safdie, famous for his work at the Marina Bay Sands and the Jewel Changi Airport.

Bar room was a private room in the basement that the State Courts had provided for the lawyers, a familiar offering in the previous State Courts. In envisioning the space for contemplation and reflection for the legal practitioners, we designed the space with a calm and warm palette of colors and fabrics. Essentially an open plan, the room was spacious. We catered for an ambience of modern comfort with sofa seats as well as study tables for work and discussion.

A working station with computers and printers was provisioned as well. This was integrated with a well-stocked pantry that allowed the catering of refreshments and coffee. The final result was a purposefully designed space with a cozy ambience suited for the preparation of one’s thoughts and emotions.
