Tell us about yourself.

After graduating from the TVB School of Habitat Studies in 1995, I began my career with the renowned architect Gautam Bhatia, who helped me explore various mediums of spatial expression—including interior architecture and exhibition design—which became a key aspect of study for us in the following years. Looking back at my education, I believe learning from some of the industry’s brightest minds, the school’s promotion of free-thinking, and a hands-on approach to finding design solutions contributed to my design approach and thinking. At Studio Lotus, I lead the architecture and master planning initiatives.

About the firm you have founded.
