Been to ROM once and coincidentally only recently in July. No idea why but it reminded me of Mandai Crematorium's holding area! This makeover is much needed, just like myCarForum.😌 Inside the solemnisation room, the color is dull and boring. There is no natural lighting. In its place yellow/orangey lights. Pictures taken on mobile phones will turn out yellowish if you don't adjust the white balance. Tell me the colors ain't depressing? No love in the air. Curtains drawn to reveal a garden for couples to take photos after the solemnisation. Everything is so systematic. ROM To Be Redesigned By Students Because It Looks Like A ‘Polyclinic’ Pragmatism makes many a Singaporean couple. After all, we live in a place where the idea of a romantic – or unromantic – proposal starts with “BTO ai mai?” Perhaps this may explain why the officiating of marriages tends to drift towards practicality than lovey-dovey vibes. We’re talking about the Registry of Marriages (ROM) building here, in case you haven’t gotten it yet. Its interiors are often described as tacky and unromantic – “is that a polyclinic counter at the front?” – but things are set to change come 2022. The building that houses the ROM and Registry of Muslim Marriages (ROMM) will be undergoing a design uplift. Hopefully, it’ll inject more ‘lomantic’ feels for every couple’s big day. Modernising ROM with open & garden concepts Earlier this year, Singaporeans were told that the iconic Registration of Marriages (ROM) building, in Fort Canning Park, will be refurbished starting mid-2020. About 150 students from Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD), Temasek Polytechnic, and Ngee Ann Polytechnic, have put forward design proposals to reimagine its interiors. On Friday (Aug 23), TODAY Online reported that 7 concepts have been shortlisted based on creativity and practicality. Other than artist impressions, there are also small-scale models of their designs to give you a better feel of their ideas. Among some of the concepts proposed entail: - replacing current waiting area with a central garden for a zen and relaxed atmosphere - smaller and more intimate waiting spaces - using natural lighting to brighten up solemnisation rooms including elements of greenery using columns that look like intertwining trees You are welcome to drop by the ROM and ROMM building from now to 20 Sep to have a closer look at the shortlisted designs.
