Our work weaves together, engages with, and influences the urban environment, generating meaningful relationships between people, buildings, and the urban landscape.


In our work, we use an empathetic approach. It shapes how we interact with one another and is reflected in the environments we create.


We look at construction obstacles as opportunities to learn new things and push the boundaries of our ideas.

Transit-Oriented Development

The trend in cities is toward large-scale, mixed-use, transit-oriented projects. We thrive in delivering transit-oriented projects that serve as the nexus of their respective communities in Singapore.

Our people-centric values are seen in the developments’ connectivity, accessibility, and sustainability, which weave together the complex interplay of social and urban fabrics into a vibrant experience for the local community – the result of balanced stakeholder alignment, carefully considered placemaking, and purposefully designed public spaces.

Commercial and mixed-use properties

We have created landmark buildings that not only interweave with their context but also imbue them with a sense of place that celebrates their culture and heritage, from grade ‘A’ offices like One Raffles Place to complex transit-oriented developments like Jem. Our emphasis on the user experience and community relationships generates dynamic and sustainable venues.


A focus on people and future preparation is critical for effective results in healthcare design in our new social construct characterized by demographical and epidemiological trends.

Our user-centered design and holistic well-being approach results in complete and adaptable architectural and medical planning solutions that foster meaningful relationships between patients, medical personnel, buildings, and the environment.
