DESIGN BRIEF Revenue House, the first "intelligent" government building in Singapore houses the various departments of Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) under one roof. It consists of
a 24-storey office block, a 5-storey podium block and a 4-storey basement that house office space, cafeteria, childcare centre, recreational facilities
and civil defence shelter.
An underpass connects the building to a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station. The architectural consultancy is a comprehensive scope of works that included design of office interiors,

furniture and furnishings as well.

The Revenue House is designed as a landmark with different faces when viewed from different directions by the diagonal orientation of the solid frame of the block.
