Description, Philosophy, History

K2LD Singapore is an international practice established in Singapore in 1998. A secondary office was opened in Melbourne in 2007. The practice is led by three directors (Ko Shiou Hee, David Lee, and Ben Teng), each with more than 15 years of experience working with major architectural design practices in Australia and Asia.
K2LD Singapore's Architectural Design philosophy embraces the Sense and Sensibility of Architect.
The senses mold the intricate relationship between time, light and material to allow spatial freedom that is beautiful in its myriad of expressions. Taming these exciting relationships materializes in an architectural experience. The sensibilities of Architecture advocate an understanding of the ways the natural beauty of materials can be brought out in construction, enhancing the imaginative appreciation of the way in which materials partake in the design.
We believe that design emerges from an intensive dialogue with our Clients, a sensitive study of the site and the Client’s brief. We strive to achieve design solutions in line with current developments in architectural technologies and expression, while capturing space and light in tangible form, giving meaning to Architecture.
K2LD Singapore is  not driven by design “ style “. Beauty and freedom is born out of the intensive process of creation and continuous refinement of ideas and structure intimately connected to space, function and context.
K2LD Singapore is firmly committed to providing the highest quality of architectural design that responds to the environment and aspirations of our Clients.
K2LD Singapore's studios are driven by a collaborative culture, and the collective experience of our team enables us to provide clients with the highest level of service across a range of project types.
Shiou Hee and Ben Teng are based in the Singapore Office while David Lee leads the Australia Office.
