Our Philosophy

‘If a space is not well-planned and thoughtful, everything that follows will be like slapping on more make-up to a face that really needs corrective work.’ ~ Constance Tew

It is our vision to create noteworthy works and be an inspiration for the next generation in the interior design industry.

Our design is rooted in sound research and on-the- ground experience. We believe good interior design requires sensitivity to real human needs – it is not merely making cosmetic or decorative improvement to a space. From helping to formulate and popularise the concept of ‘SOHO’ living in Singapore, to changing up the masses’ perception of ‘Asian luxury’, we have kept raising the bar for the local interior design industry and we intend to do it globally.
