While working on our book, the publisher suggested to give some particular attention to my project sketches. We eventually decided to introduce every project featured in the book with one of the sketches I came out with in the initial phases of the design. Looking back at them it is quite amazing how the essence of many buildings we built was actually forged like this, with a few simple lines on tracing paper. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Indonesia One Location: Jakarta, Indonesia Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Interiors - Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect - PT ANGGARA Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architonic #architecturedaily #architecture_magazine #architecturegram #architecture_best #architecture_photography #architecture_digest #architecture_view #architecture_masters #architecture_design #architecture_se7en #architecturelove #instarchitecture #architecturelife #architecturedose #architecturehunter #architectureproject #architecturepicture #architorture #architour #contemporaryarchitecture #parametric #architectanddesign #massimomercurio #architectural_award #ipreview via @preview.app
Everytime I come to Sentosa and look at it I still stand in awe looking at what we designed.

The Yantai Wine musem was one of our first projects under MDL brand. It was the centre piece of a larger development in the city of Yantai in the Chinese wine making region of Shandong. The building represents a giant wine barrel immersed on its side in a huge wine pool. The project could not complete the relocation plan and was therefore shelved, the building model however is still showcased at the developer headquarter for its unique concept. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Wine Museum Location: Yantai, China Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architecture_view #architecture_minimal #architecture_best #architecture_lovers #architecture_magazine #architecture_masters #architecture_photography #architecture_lover #architecture_design #architecture_digest #architecture_se7en #architecture_porn #architecturelove #architecturegram #architecturedaily #instarchitecture #architecturelife #architectureilike #architecturedose #architecturehunter #architectureproject #architecturepicture #architecturefactor #architorture #architonic #architour #designandbuild #ipreview via @preview.app
We recently designed a very interesting resort along Da Nang beach in Vietnam. The project was supposed to offer three hundred rooms, between two hotel towers, and a hundred villas. We strived to bestow to the thirty storeys towers a natural feel so that patrons would have feel immersed in a resort the moment they approached the buildings from the main road. Do you think we succeeded in the intent? ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Vanesea Field Location: Da Nang, Vietnam Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Interiors - Mercurio Design Lab Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architecture_view #architecture_minimal #architecture_best #architecture_lovers #architecture_magazine #architecture_masters #architecture_photography #architecture_lover #architecture_design #architecture_digest #architecture_se7en #architecture_porn #architecturelove #architecturegram #architecturedaily #instarchitecture #architecturelife #architectureilike #architecturedose #architecturehunter #architectureproject #architecturepicture #architecturefactor #architorture #architonic #architour #designandbuild #ipreview via @preview.app
A HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR to all! For this new year we feature one of our most auspicious projects. Villa Otto. The villa was intentionally designed in the shape of an eight because of the auspicious meaning of the number eight in Chinese. We show here a 3D rendering, part of the original concept presentation. The real building, amazingly, looks exactly the same, you can see that in a earlier post here showing a photo from the same angle. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Villa Otto Location: Jervois, Singapore Architecture: Mercurio Design Lab Interiors: Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect: AM Architects Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architonic #architecturedaily #architecture_magazine #architecturegram #contemporaryarchitecture #architecturedetails #architecturedetail #parametric #parametricdesign #parametricarchitecture #architectureview #Pritzker #minimalarchitecture #archviz #architexture #architorture #architecture_greatshots #architecturelove #architecture_view #buildingporn #building_shotz #amazingarchitecture #architecture_hunter #architecture_minimal #architecture_best #architecture_digest #ipreview via @preview.app
One of best great design secrets is keeping the inspiration flowing at every scale from the masterplan to the detailing of the fittings. Anton Gaudi was famous to spend hours detailing a door nob with the same passion he devoted to the Pedrera. Attempting to follow the lead of the great masters here is the staircase that brings patrons from the gym level to the pool level at Amber Skye. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Amber Skye Location: Singapore, Amber Rd Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect - AM Architects Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #massimomercurio #mercuriodesignlab #amazingarchitecture #architecture_hunter #architizer #contemporaryarchitecture #architecturedaily #architecture_best #architecture_minimal #architonic #architecture_photography #architecture_digest #architecturelover #archilovers #architectcenter #designanddecor #architecture_digest #architecture_magazine #architectanddesign #architecturedose #architecture_lover #architecture_design #architectural_award #architekt #architecture_hunters #architectur #ipreview via @preview.app
Among all our built projects the Langham Place hotel is the one that we had some major challenges with. As we only provided the schematic design, the project architect went on to modifying heavily our original intent, and though we provided some guidelines to the end the result was far from what we envisaged as you can see in the rendering. However the building has maintained its essential composition which still bestows it an elegance. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Langham Place Hotel Location: Haining China Architecture: Mercurio Design Lab Interiors: Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect: AEDAS Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architonic #architecturedaily #architecture_magazine #architecturegram #contemporaryarchitecture #architecturedetails #architecturedetail #parametric #parametricdesign #parametricarchitecture #architectureview #Pritzker #minimalarchitecture #archviz #architexture #architorture #architecture_greatshots #architecturelove #architecture_view #buildingporn #building_shotz #amazingarchitecture #architecture_hunter #architecture_minimal #architecture_best #architecture_digest #ipreview via @preview.app
IMPORTANT QUESTION! Our publisher just sent us the first draft of our first book. It is a monograph about MDL work from 2008 to 2018. We are very pleased with what we have seen so far and we are really excited at the idea of having our work on the bookshelves soon. We have however a big question to answer and we want you guys to help us in the decision. The publisher thinks an unusual cover, like the one we show here with one of my original sketches of iLiv, embossed in silver over a metallic grey background, would be a great idea to introduce Mercurio Design Lab to the world. On the other hand we think that maybe Villa Mistral, shown in the other photo here, our most famous project, might be the best ambassador for our work. What is your opinion as a potential reader? What would the best cover for our book, a photo of Mistral or a silver sketch of iLiv? ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #architecture_digest #architecture_magazine #architecture_lover #architecture_design #architecture_hunters #amazingarchitecture #architecture_hunter #architizer #contemporaryarchitecture #architecturedaily #mercuriodesignlab
This is one of the original renders of Villa Lambda. One of the projects that most holds a symbolic meaning about our design style development. This angle in particular shows the house in its exceptional dynamism. Lambda won one of our very first architectural awards but still today I feel it is an underrated project among our most well known design pieces. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Villa Lamda Location: East Coast, Singapore Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Interiors - Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect - AM Architects Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #designboom #architectureanddesign #architonic #architorture #architecturemagazine #architecture_digest #homedesign #bhghome #houses #architour #architecture_hunter #housestyle #arquitectos #architecturelife #architecture_lovers #archiporn #arkiminimal #amazingarchitecture #instarchitecture #homes #archdigest #architectural_award #designhome #designstudio #parametric #archicad #ipreview
One of the most obvious peculiarity of Nassim Quattro is the rather linear and angular language that aligns more with earlier projects especially those we designed under the group brand AMA, than with our more recent and clearly more organic works. Yet the strife for the search of a recursive perfection in the design elements and their rhythm is quite obvious in the weaved sequence of Nassim Quattro facade that as we highlighted in earlier posts has a certain musical texture in its composition. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Nassim Quattro Location: 49 Nassim Rd, Singapore Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Interiors - Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect - AM Architects Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #creativearchitecture #modernliving #architecture_hunter #architektura #architecturaldesign #architectureschool #architecture_greatshots #architecturaldigest #architectura #architecturelove #architecturedetails #architecturegram #architecturedaily #architecturephoto #designbuild #designhouse #artsytecture #architektura #arquiteturaedesign #arquitecto #arquitetando #architonic #architorture #architour #archilovers #archdigest #ipreview @preview.app
The design of interior spaces is often mistakenly regarded as an effort by itself. Instead, we at MDL look at it as an intrinsic aspect of architecture. Interior spaces are just the introspection of architecture. Staircases and Atriums are the epitome of this concept, they are the most architectural elements of interiors. Here is a combination of both we designed for the Langham Place Hotel in Haining. What is your take about Architecture and Interiors, are they two aspect of the same discipline as I believe, or are they two separate disciplines? ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Langham Place Hotel Location: Haining China Architecture: Mercurio Design Lab Interiors: Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect: AEDAS Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #archilovers #designanddecor #designporn #architectureporn #archdigest #mercuriodesignlab #architonic #architecturedetails #architecturedaily #architecture_magazine #architecture_view #architecture_lover #architecture_design #architecture_se7en #architour #architorture #architecture_digest #interiorlovers #interiorinspo #interiordesign #interiorwarrior #interiorforinspo #interior4all #interiorstyling #ipreview @preview.app
I had a discussion once with a young hot headed punk who was arguing with me that a sculpture is only art if you actually sculpt it with your own hands. I obviously disagreed, but the debate has its merits. Most contemporary art philosophers would define art at a more conceptual level than just craftsmanship. But philosophy is not a measurable science... ⠀⠀ The 3D rendering here shows my Superstring when it was first conceptualised. I started first with a few sketches, then this model in Rhino, I then printed it in 3D and eventually I had it forged in stainless steel by a fabricator. The 4 meters Sculpture sits today outside the Hamilton Scots in Singapore and it won the A award gold medal. ⠀⠀ So... is it Art, and if not because it was modelled virtually than what is it? I would love to hear your opinion about it. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Sculpture: Superstring Location: Hamilton Scotts, Singapore Art Work: Massimo Mercurio Design: Mercurio Design Lab Foundry: Xing Shu Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #creatives #artfinder #artjournal #instaart #makersmovement #art_we_inspire #artstudio #massimomercurio #art #artistsoninstagram #artlover #artlovers #artwork #masterpiece #designanddecor #designporn #architectureporn #artwork #sculpture #contemporaryart #archdigest #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artist_4_shoutout #artist #contemporarysculpture #metalsculpture #ipreview @preview.app
I have a particular relationship with Otto. As I wanted it to be perfect, I practically decided to build it ourselves, any contractor would have not put in the necessary passion to build this Sculpture House the way it deserved. Building, though, was not an easy feat and it often tested our limits. It so bears the emotional burden of a trouble child, yet every time I look at it I can’t avoid marvelling myself for what we have accomplished. This is a photo I took myself during a site inspection when the project was almost completed. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Villa Otto Location: Jervois, Singapore Architecture: Mercurio Design Lab Interiors: Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect: AM Architects Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architonic #architecturedetails #architecturedaily #architecture_magazine #architecture_best #architecture_view #architecturelove #architorture #architecture_hunter #minimalarchitecture #parametric #archviz #architectureview #Pritzker #architecture_greatshots #architecture_photography #architecture_masters #architecture_lover #architecturelife #architectureproject #architecturefactor #archdigest #architecture_design #architecture_se7en #architecturedose #architour #ipreview @preview.app
Dramatic angles definitely can yield dramatic captures, and this Amber Skye’s one definitely inspires a sense of awe. The condominium architecture stands out in its surrounding for its dynamic massing, and this view, from the corner upward, really emphasises the underlying concept of waves and movement. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Amber Skye Location: Singapore, Amber Rd Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect - AM Architects Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architonic #architecturedaily #architecture_magazine #architecturegram #contemporaryarchitecture #architecturedetails #architecturedetail #parametric #parametricdesign #parametricarchitecture #architectureview #Pritzker #minimalarchitecture #archviz #architexture #architorture #architecture_greatshots #architecturelove #architecture_view #buildingporn #building_shotz #amazingarchitecture #architecture_hunter #architecture_minimal #architecture_best #architecture_digest #ipreview @preview.app
This was the last 3D rendering of Villa Vento, in its final approved design configuration. It is probably the best angle to grasp the essence of this special villa architecture. It’s dynamism and sleek lines makes it one of the most unique houses ever built and only comparable to its adjacent famous Sister Villa Mistral. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Villa Vento - Singapore Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Interiors - Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect - AM Architects Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architonic #architecturedaily #architecture_magazine #architecturegram #architecture_best #architecture_photography #architecture_digest #architecture_view #architecture_minimal #architecture_lovers #architecture_masters #architecture_lover #architecturelove #instarchitecture #architecturelife #architecturehunter #architectureproject #architecturepicture #architecturefactor #architorture #archdigest #architecturedetails #contemporaryarchitecture #amazingarchitecture #architexture #architecture_hunter #building_shotz
This is a particularly beautiful unpublished photograph of Mistral, which was recently taken by Gareth Seah @garethseah. The frame features a great capture of the famous villa’s side facade. From this angle you can clearly grasp the design intent and the juxtaposition of the various elements of the house, that made of the project a unique work of architecture. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Villa Mistral Location: Sentosa Cove, Singapore Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Interiors - Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect - AM Architects Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architecture_view #architecture_minimal #architecture_best #architecture_lovers #architecture_magazine #architecture_masters #architecture_photography #architecture_lover #architecture_design #architecture_digest #architecture_se7en #architecture_porn #architecturelove #architecturegram #architecturedaily #instarchitecture #architecturelife #architectureilike #architecturedose #architecturehunter #architectureproject #architecturepicture #architecturefactor #architorture #architonic #architour #designandbuild
“Feng” is a sculpture I made for our Project Villa Vento. It’s twisting spires are alluring at the dynamism of winds and their movements around the globe. The sculpture greets you at the entrance of the well known house and together with the water feature at its base, it calls for prosperity and good fortune as per good Feng Shui principles. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Sculpture: Feng (Wind) Location: Villa Vento, Singapore Art Work: Massimo Mercurio Design: Mercurio Design Lab Foundry: Xing Shu Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #massimomercurio #art #artistsoninstagram #mercuriodesignlab #artlover #artlovers #artwork #masterpiece #architecturelover #archilovers #architectcenter #designanddecor #designporn #architectureporn #artwork #sculpture #contemporaryart #archdigest #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artist_4_shoutout #artist #contemporarysculpture #sculptureart #metalsculpture #modernsculpture #sculptureoftheday #artinprogress #ipreview @preview.app
This beautiful capture of the twin villas Alba is a great homage to the design intent. The curvature of the roof, and its allusive sunrise feel, is well understood when seen from this angle. Symbology is a powerful subject when someone uses it for finding inspiration. Are you also sensitive to the charm of symbols in your daily life? ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Project: Villa Alba Location: Sentosa Cove, Singapore Architecture - Mercurio Design Lab Interiors - Mercurio Design Lab Project Architect - AM Architects Credits to @massimo.mdl ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mercuriodesignlab #architonic #architecturedaily #architecture_magazine #architecturegram #contemporaryarchitecture #architecturedetails #architecturedetail #parametric #parametricdesign #parametricarchitecture #architectureview #Pritzker #minimalarchitecture #archviz #architexture #architorture #architecture_greatshots #architecturelove #architecture_view #buildingporn #building_shotz #amazingarchitecture #architecture_hunter #architecture_minimal #architecture_best #architecture_digest #ipreview @preview.app
