The 1st Jurlique concept store is now at Plaza Singapura, bringing you ranges of their products so you can experience radiance at every age and indulge yourselves in a relaxing ambience to experience Jurlique facial treatments that suit every individuals' skin care concerns.
Jurlique was founded in 1985 in Australia by Dr Jurgen Klein and his wife Ulrike. The company's name is based on a phonetic combination of their first names. The native German couple relocated to a farm in the Adelaide Hills a year prior to the launch of their brand, due to its warm climate. Jurgen was a biochemist and naturopath, who had previously worked for German holistic skincare brand Dr. Hauschka and Ulrike was a horticulturalist and botanist. Today the farm is still part of the company and Jurlique products are sold in more than 19 countries around the world. And their most iconic natural ingredients are still grown in the Adelaide Hills where Jurlique first began.

And in the process revolutionized the beauty business with their return to Nature and commitment to the environment. They created the first cosmetic container recycling program in the industry. And have worked with organizations like Global ReLeaf to plant trees around the world.

The 670 sq m of retail and exhibition space features windows of different heights and sizes, angled and furnished with Venetian blinds to block out direct sunlight.
The store has been expanded by 4m towards Angullia Park where its new main entrance is, creating a porch-like shelter as customers alight from the road.

Timber battens cover the ceiling of skincare brand Aesop's newest store in Singapore, which architecture firm Snøhetta based on a nutmeg plantation that once occupied the site.
The new store is located on the basement level of the ION shopping centre just off Orchard Road, close to an area that was once used as a nutmeg plantation.
Inspired by the site's history, Snøhetta, the firm behind the recent SFMOMA extension, used a collection of materials, colours and forms to create what they call an "upside-down forest".
A dark sisal carpet references the orchard floor, while thin timber battens hanging from the ceiling suggest a series of tree trunks.
Walls are painted in a shade of pink intended to be reminiscent of the colour of mace, a spice harvested from the nutmeg fruit.
Materials used are often indigenous to the region, such as Kerstin Thompson Architects' perforated gum-wood details for a store in Melbourne, or make local cultural references, as in the case of a branch in Stockholm inspired by the work of Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier.

Motorists at Changi Village have been enjoying the Housing Board's (HDB's) first new mechanised carpark since last December, as an alternative to patiently waiting for a lot at the open-air carpark in the area.
Built at a cost of $10 million, the new Mechanised Parking System (MPS) has helped to nearly double the number of available parking lots at the popular foodie haunt from 183 to 304.
The carpark is fully automated and allows vehicles to be transferred to available parking spots across a five-storey building.
In order to park, motorists need to drive their cars into one of four car lifts, before switching off their engines and locking their vehicles behind them.
They then punch an eight-digit PIN code in a computer terminal outside and the MPS automatically parks the car once the lift door closes.
Cars are retrieved by entering the same PIN code.
Peak period wait times to retrieve each car ranged between 10 and 15 minutes. It is open to residents for season parking, as well as for visitors at the same parking fees charged at regular HDB carparks.

As Déliciae’s founder and CEO Olivier Bendel believes that every bar has a shelf life, a revamp seemed only natural for 83 Club Street – the oldest bar on Club Street. 83 was free, fun and a bit decadent – this will remain the same with Bumbo Rum Club.
Olivier had always imagined a place filled with fun and laughter over tantalizing food and specialty cocktails. Bumbo, a word that evokes playfulness and gaiety, is a perfect representation of that belief. As a connoisseur of the notorious pirates’ drink, he wanted Rum to be the focus. Bumbo, also a drink made from rum, water, sugar and nutmeg, was a hot favorite in the Caribbean when piracy was rampant. With such delicate nuances in the word, Bumbo Rum Club was thus conceived.
Further inspiration by muses such as the iconic Caribbean palm tree and the Caribbean Sea helped conceptualize BRC’s overall design. An aged-barrels feature wall additionally instills a sense of rusticity reminiscent of olden day pirate ships and Caribbean holidays. One novel and unique highlight of BRC is the Bumbo Bell, which resembles an antique Ship’s Bell. Whoever rings the bell, must buy shots for everyone inside the club! Once the bell is rung, BRC will close its doors within 3 minutes. Everyone inside then gets a special BRC shot from the bell-ringer. Join the BRC Hall Of Fame by buying the most shots.
Boasting a whopping collection of 76 rums from more than 20 countries, 7 homemade infused rums as well as 25 exquisite rum cocktails, BRC was created for rum lovers. Cocktail aficionados, try the signature Bumbo Rum Club Cocktail for a sweet touch. Or get adventurous with Discover The Bumbo Rum Club – made with four different rums and BRC secret ingredients! Choose from four enticing punch bowl flavors for sharing if you are more than two; or simply work your way through all.
The mouth-watering menu of Caribbean goodness will also be more than enough to keep your palate satisfied throughout the night. Influenced by South American, Caribbean and South USA cuisine and using only the finest and freshest ingredients, the food at BRC will explode a myriad of flavors in your mouth.
Want a tasty refreshing appetizer? Choose from their Salmon, Sea Bass or Prawn Ceviches; or get a trio for sampling. For some zest and slight spice, order the Cuban Tomato Tartine – a delicious concoction of toasted garlic bread, juicy tomatoes, cheese and bits of jalapenos. Carnivores, go for the delectable Costillas de Cerdo
(Blackcurrant Pork Ribs). Melt-in-your-mouth tenderness mixed with a subtle sweetness of fresh blackcurrants will create a magical combination that leaves you wanting more.
With special themed programs lined up every night, you will always be entertained. Step into Bumbo Rum Club and be transported to the world of Caribbean sensuality and tastes.
