Thexton Smith Interiors Wins the A’ Interior Space, Retail and Exhibition Award at the A’ Design Award and Competition

Thexton Smith Interiors is very excited to announce that our project, Silversea Penthouse, has won the A’ Interior Space, Retail and Exhibition Bronze Design Award at the A’ Design Award and Competition 2023.


Co-founder and director Hafi Hakim, travelled to Lake Como, Italy recently to collect the award at a ceremony honouring the world’s best architects and designers.


Situated on the idyllic East Coast of Singapore, this penthouse overlooks the Singapore Strait and the cityscape of the iconic Marina Bay – the epitome of luxury living.


The scope of this project was to create an elegant, yet luxurious home, where the panoramic view of the picturesque coastline is the star. Whilst keeping the colour scheme muted, the furniture pieces highlighted in this apartment were unique and a statement all on their own. The designs reflected sophistication and restraint, whilst maintaining a sense of opulence. This modern luxury apartment evokes the emotion of awe, comfort and romanticism, which is exactly what the client desired and envisaged from the beginning of this project.



Silversea has been featured in the February/March edition of Tatler Homes Singapore. Thexton Smith Interiors have also been shortlisted for four categories in The International Design & Architecture Awards, 2023, including:

  1. Living Space – Global
  2. Living Space – Asia Pacific
  3. Interior Design Scheme – Global
  4. Interior Design Scheme – Asia Pacific


“I am so impressed with “Silversea Penthouse”, a Residential Interior Space and Exhibition Design work”, says Giulia Esposito. “From the choice of materials to the use of space and lighting, everything is brilliantly put together. The design is tasteful, modern and sophisticated, with a great attention to detail. It is obvious that a lot of thought and effort was put into making this work a success, and it is a joy to look at. Truly an amazing work of art! Congratulations to Hafi Hakim for their well-deserved A’ Design Award!”


Chloe Turner adds, “I am in awe of this stunning apartment design! The light sculpture is truly remarkable and the way it was crafted with sustainable materials is inspiring. The soft whites and organic shapes create a calming atmosphere that allows the view to take center stage. The attention to detail and creativity in this design is evident and it is no surprise that it won the A’ Design Award.”




Elisabeth Clark explains that “I am so impressed by Hafi Hakim’s work on the Silversea Penthouse. The design is truly stunning, and I’m amazed at how the design team was able to take the client’s vision of a luxurious, calming home and bring it to life.”


On behalf of the entire company, Thexton Smith Interiors would like to thank our clients, contractors, vendors and suppliers for their amazing work in helping make our vision come to life. We are very honoured to win such a prestigious award.
