Top 3 Winning Solutions

Champion - The “URL” To Sustainability

By Tee Xiao Wei, Estelle Ho, Teo Jia Rong, Tong Pei Jie Kelly, and Koh Kai Hong from NUS Business School, Department of Real Estate.

It is a proposed implementation of a sustainability framework checklist; Utility, Reliability and Liveability. These proposed ideas are set to benefit the future of residential development in a sustainable manner.

Some of the proposed ideas consist of the Biophilic Developments that are set to improve air quality, mitigating urban heat island effect and reducing noise. Next, transparent solar panels that can filter UV and infrared sunlight, cutting down on the energy needed to cool interior spaces while generating electricity at the same time. Plus, these will not affect the development’s architecture and aesthetic. Lastly, Open Floor Plans to give homeowners flexibility in interior design so as to optimise material usage, reduce waste, and improve renovation efficiencies.

1st Runner-Up - Project New-Metaverse

By Tyu Ke Wei and Tyu Ker Yu from Singapore Institute of Technology.

It is the building of a digital replica of the property and its neighbourhood that can be monetised by allowing interior design companies to rent and advertise. The prospective buyers can interact with the digital replica of the neighbourhood and property, giving them a more immersive experience to increase the likelihood of a purchase. Furthermore, the digital replica can exist for a longer period of time compared to traditional show flats and it reduces cost for developers as there are no logistical costs for furniture.

2nd Runner-Up - VRIEW

By Lin Si Qi from NUS School of Business, Department of Business Administration.

It is the building of a mobile-based platform that enables users to freely explore and move around in the property. In addition, the app will prompt similar recommendations for users based on the view history and it also allows real estate salespersons to introduce the property to multiple users at one time. The proposed idea is set to simplify the buying process for buyers and make it more convenient for them as this can be done through mobile phones.
