studio tour: WOHA architects




while in singapore for the singapore design festival, designboom was treated to a tour of WOHA’s studio in the city’s downtown core. the studio is divided into three section, the office, the showroom and terraces. as you enter the studio you are confronted with a collection of traditional carved wood decorations. moving into the office space you can see a glimpse of the green atrium which is covered in an eco-wall full of greenery. the use of plants is especially evident when you walk onto the terraces which overlook the city. the terrace has a massive wood plank table designed by the studio along with most of the other furnishings in the building. the terrace covers two levels connected by a minimal staircase. the main floor is used to showcase models and other works by the studio. they were featuring three of their new projects when we visited. woha was also one of the winner’s at the president’s design awards for their ‘1 moulmein rise’ project.
