We are often asked who we are and what we do.

FARM is many things at once. We are a cross disciplinary design practice.
We are an architecture atelier. We are a curatorial team. We are a community-centred
arts organization.
We even run a store.

We call ourselves FARM because we would like to cultivate a culture of imagination. Underpinning all we do is a belief that joyful creativity is essential in all our lives.
FARM endeavours to share with you that delight in each of our projects.

Since 2005, FARM has worked on community projects which promote the arts.
We organise national public art competitions and events. We arrange free quarterly talks by designers and artists. In 2007, FARM established its cross disciplinary design arm.
In collaboration with artists and designers, we work on a diverse range of projects. These include architecture & interior design, product design & merchandising, graphic design & branding, art installation & sculpture, exhibition design & curatorial work.


Our studio is made up of young, energetic, often eccentric but always insanely happy people. Our studio culture is where work and play mingle, intertwine and sometimes become indistinguishable. Despite the occasional hectic schedules and deadlines, we hold this dictum close to our hearts : "Work Hard & Be Nice to People".

Tiah Nan Chyuan
B.A. Arch., A.A. Dip. (U.K.)

As a little boy, Nan Chyuan would spend hours cycling around his neighbourhood, making sketches of houses he saw. And it was clear then that there was nothing he would rather do than architecture.

He finds beauty in geometry and patterns. From furniture pieces to urban planning, he believes that good design should be responsive, intelligent and sincere.

Architecture aside, Nan Chyuan likes to think that he is a semi-retired footballer.
Torrance Goh
B.A. Arch., M. Arch.

Torrance graduated with an architectural degree from the National University of Singapore. His adventurous spirit led him to work with Alsop Architects in their London and Singapore offices.

The love of the local and the arts prompted him to start up the FARM as a non-profit design and art society in 2006.

Torrance believes that his designs should be delightful and have an element of surprise.
Selwyn Low
B.A. Arch., M. Arch.

Selwyn has a childhood dream of becoming a stationery shop owner and thus his fascination with neatly-arranged books and pens in an array of colours.

He believes that good design should be accessible to the masses through clever and sustainable market structures.

Selwyn says that his happiest places to be are East Coast Park and Pulau Ubin but we think it's actually the old hawker centres dishing out yummy local foods.
Peter Sim
A.R.B. (U.K.), B.A. (Arch.), B. Arch.(Hons.)

After working in the UK for a few years, Peter returned to Singapore in 2006 to do something special. He got together with the guys at FARM and together they formed WORK.

Peter believes that architecture and design should be clever, responsible and never too straightforward.

Apart from good design, Peter loves fishing, his dogs, his baby girl and his wife, though not necessarily in that order. He would also like to be a vet.
Willie Koh
Adv. Dip. Film, B.A. Arch.

Besides being a self-professed hopeless shopaholic, Willie is a very good listener. He thinks that he would make a counsellor.

He finds pleasure watching the most obscure films at 3am in his attic.

When he retires one day, you would find Willie in a little French village with a vineyard in the backyard, wondering about the constellations at night.
Hong Weiming
Dip. Interior Arch.

More than just an interior designer, Weiming is FARM's resident plumber, electrician and the occasional IT specialist.

Having been in the industry for so many years, he has long forgotten the reason for taking up interior design but the satisfaction and joy he derives from it remains unwavering. When his eyes are not fixed on AutoCAD, he enjoys playing sports, uninterrupted quiet time, and his wife's lovingly-prepared bento lunches.

A nature-lover at heart, Weiming thinks that he would probably be a real farmer in a parallel universe.
Oh Wenxin
B.F.A. Visual Comm.

With a background in Fine Arts, Wenxin moved on to do graphic design. It is the farming of graphic ideas and the harvesting of the eventual products that delights her so much at FARM.

One of her greatest wishes is to live in a huge house with quirky designs (hopefully designed in collaboration with FARM).

When not at FARM, she would be travelling the world getting design inspirations from the tiniest corners. If not, then you would probably find her sleeping.
Hui Lian
B.A. Arch. (Hons.), M. Arch.

It is the aesthetics of spaces, objects and materials that brought Hui Lian into this line of work. She loves the funny people and large windows in the FARM house.

Multi-tasking is not her forte but she can drink teh and do her drawings at the same time.

Hui Lian is hopelessly afraid of living things with too many legs or no legs at all but surprisingly is cool with cockroaches and spiders.
Susanne Teng
B.F.A. Visual Comm.

Susanne, our lovable closet Ah Lian is a graphic designer at FARM. She has no idea why or how she begun graphic designing but nonetheless she enjoys every minute of it.

The flexibility and how opinions and thoughts can be voiced out and discussed openly are what she likes best about working at FARM.

Other than designing, she would love to sell ice-cream at a mama shop so she would have an endless supply to last her a lifetime.
Lucille Lee
Dip. Arch.

Judging from her love of fashion and cosmetics, one would think that Lucille is a fashion designer (or a pampered housewife) but no, she is our newest bubbliest interior designer!

Our mysterious girl is quite mum about what she does in her free time but we suspect it involves a whole lot of fun and aliases since she likes to imagine herself as someone else.

Like everyone in the architecture/interior design scene, Lucille is hatching a secret plan of building her own house in the mountains in a far far away land, maybe with a farm attached to it.
Rose Chen
Dip. Marketing

Rose is our multi-tasking, multi-pronged office manager who handles all things, big and small, with aplomb and ease.

Since joining FARM, Rose has learned to appreciate the creative work of her fellow colleagues and the vibrancy of the working culture at FARM. She is thankful that FARM has given her the opportunity to contribute as part of the great team.

She also believes that one's life is not measured by how much you have but the love and happiness you bring to the people around you everyday.

Rose champions a healthy lifestyle – she enjoys working out at the gym and morning walks around the park, to admire the beauty of Creation.
Valerie Seow
B.A. Marketing

Marketing is what Valerie is good at and that's what she's doing at FARM.

Managing FARM's product line and meeting all sorts of people is something she finds challenging and satisfying at the same time. And what really keeps her going is the ‘awesome and funny’ people at FARM.

Valerie's a true foodie, always hunting and exploring new food joints, checking off her list of ‘Live to Eat’ places. One day, she will be a lao ban niang (aka lady boss), with her own cafe offering gourmet coffee from all over the world.
Gareth Low
Dip. Furniture/Interior Design

Gareth wants to be a part of everything FARM does, from graphic to product to spatial design. Never afraid to get his hands dirty, he loves building things with his own hands!

He sincerely believes that even if he's not good at things at first, he will learn in the process and become better eventually and it will all come together as a whole.

Well if he ain't a designer, he would probably become a professional actor, soccer player, dancer, or a gamer...
Trina Ang
Dip. Interior Design

To witness design ideas turning into reality gives Trina a huge sense of satisfaction, especially when she's a part of the creation. She also claims to work in probably the happiest office in the entire building and that totally makes her day! Believe it or not, she was hooked onto design whilst watching home decor tv programmes where she discovered in wide-eye wonder how spaces got crafted.

One day you will find Trina with her best friend, baking in a house in New Zealand with a backyard of sheep.
Sarah Lew
Dip. Creative Media Design

Sarah the Surfer is what she hopes to be one day, complete with a killer tan and her beachfront house.

But until then, she's delighted to be a graphic designer - something she knew back in school when Art & Design classes were all she looked forward to.

She's also delighted to be in the company of other FARMers, whom she thinks are really great at what they are doing, and are generous to share their knowledge and skills. Her most fulfilling experience in work is that feeling of accomplishment of having learnt and completed something.
Clifford See
B. Arch. Design, B. Arch.

After completing his architectural studies in Melbourne, our ex-intern is back to FARM with a newfound sense of design sensibilities.

Infused with an Aussie laidback chill, Clifford found his design calling when he discovered how intricate forms of structures and sculptures are fabricated with just a simple thought. And the fact that designers are generally cooler people, helps alot too.

Clifford's really a chip off the old block - his dad is his greatest inspiration and guidance in life.
Kenneth Koh
B.A. Arch. (Hons.), M. Arch.

Kenneth is definitely intrigued with the unknown.

At a young age, he was fascinated by architectural blueprints and Louis Hellman's comics (courtesy of his engineer uncle) and was continually intrigued by the strange symbols and the new world of design & ideas. He knew then he will be an architect one day.

Filled with wanderlust, he enjoys travelling to different countries, experiencing their new cultures. His three idols are Alexander Mcqueen, Antoni Gaudi and Tim Burton - who are masters in creating alternate worlds and fantasies.

In his dreams, he will be a Willy-Wonkaesque eccentric owner of a theme park-cum-factory.
Cheung Yuting
BAppSc. Arch, M. Arch.

Stumbling into Interior and Architecture Design in polytechnic, Yuting didn't know what the course was really about then but he was happy to be accepted anyway.

Despite developing a genuine interest for Architecture, it took a few years of wandering and dwelling before firmly planting his feet. Now an Architectural Designer at FARM, things have come full circle for him.

Yuting has a secret talent of writing backwards and quietly loves drawing lines and shapes.
Panna Chee
B.F.A. Visual Comm.

Panna likes to build plastic robot models, enjoys watching and playing his soccer, and can’t live without his Korean dramas, although this last point is almost unexpected of him. Almost a hedonist, Panna believes that one's life is measured by how much one is able to enjoy life.

If he wasn't a graphic designer, he would want to fulfil his childhood dream to be a pilot and take to the skies.

In the future, Panna would like to travel the world in 100 days.
Chia Xianmin
B.F.A. Visual Comm.

Xianmin believes that the designer’s role is to evoke powerful emotions in the end users for them to form a meaningful relationship with the product.

Her two dogs are the love of her life - she snuggles up with them, or watch them run around at home, messing up the place. And instead of berating them, she joins in the fun.

Xian Min has a secret obsession. She likes admiring people with nice long fingers. Oh and also nice white teeth with a radiant smile.

In the future, Xian Min would like to teach in a small provincial town. She is charmed by the pace and way of life that’s acutely missing in a big city.
Tjiang Supertini Yuwono
B.A. (Hons.) 3D Design

Super believes that the main concern of good design is creating spaces or objects that touch people's lives through storytelling, material, forms, or small little ideas. Something that can bring smiles and joy to the users. She enjoys making things in the workshop, and often lose track of time immersing in her craft.

Super loves to travel and food hunt! What thrills her are not big cities, but to be able to spend a lazy afternoon gardening and having tea in a small farm on a hill.

If she wasn't a designer, she would be a doctor with Médecins Sans Frontières, travelling around to help people at villages. She has deep admiration for the devotion and compassion of such doctors.

In the future, Super would like to have a glass house on a lake.
Steve Lim
B.F.A. Visual Comm.

Steve is constantly fascinated by narratives and scenes around him and is always curious about life and society. These things have in a way, shaped his thinking about his work and design. He believes that good design is constantly trying to push boundaries and explore new perspectives without losing the element of play, fun and intuition.

Steve plays the badminton, tennis, volleyball, and also darts and snooker due to their tremendous level of challenge and their need of mental concentration.

Always a carefree but not careless kinda guy, Steve wants to enjoy and savour every moment in life. And perhaps one day, he may retire to become a professional dart player, who also happens to sell coffee with “zui kueh” on the side.
Mabel Low
B.A. (Hons.) Industrial Design

Deep down inside and unknown to most, Mabel is really a closeted teacher. Pedagogy is in her bones, and in the future, she sees herself as a lecturer. For now, she is part of the power duo that runs THE FARM STORE.

She believes that good design needs to be centred in and around the end user's experience. 

She also believes that one's life is not measured by the achievements but the way difficulties are surmounted to achieve the end goals. 

The sweetest thing about Mabel is that she enjoys making cards and gifts for anyone that she is grateful to. And if Mabel wasn't a designer, she would be the owner of a Mala Hotpot Restaurant to satisfy her insatiable cravings for Mala.
Limay Foo
B.A.(Hons.) Spatial Design

Known only to a secret few and possibly herself, Limay won first prize in a storytelling competition when she was just 9! She is intrigued by how stories can unfold through forms and spaces. This later inspired her to be a spatial storyteller, aka interior designer.

The adventurous Limay likes to wander and get lost in new places, and discover new food and eatery joints. She does not really enjoy being in the crowd though, but is very willing to witness a rock concert amongst a bunch of hardcore fans. 

Limay is forever held sway by Pixar's 'Finding Nemo'; the film gets to her no matter how many times she watched it. 
Tan Qian Rou
B.A. Arch. (Hons.), M. Arch.

Qian Rou spent many blissful years casually interested in architecture, but once the fascination sparked, it soon became an obsession. Now there's no saving her. Equally hopeless is her caffeine addiction, a direct result of architecture school.

She is a firm believer in architectural theory and critique, cross-disciplinary design, the importance of pedagogy and, ultimately, the autosave button. To her, design is less an occupation and more a way of seeing. 

Beyond architecture, Qian Rou enjoys reading, podcasts and bad horror films. She is a great admirer of the Shelleys and Virginia Woolf. In a parallel universe, Qian Rou is a military historian.   
Ho Shuwei
B.A.(Hons.) Interior Design

Since young, Shuwei has cultivated an obsession with blank spaces and large windows. The limitless possibilities that spring forth from such emptiness of space and openings into the unknown led him eventually towards the design field. 

Ever the perpetual dreamer, he is also a huge fan of Archigram, the avant-garde 1960s architecture group. It comes as no surprise then that his dream is to dwell in the hypothetical retro-futuristic reality, and perhaps never come back. 

If he wasn't a designer, Shuwei would probably be in Hogwarts, learning levitating spells and unforgivable curses. Wingardium leviosa! 
Edwin Tan
Dip. Visual Comm.

Edwin believes that one's life is not measured by comparing with others but having the courage to set and follow your own path and goals.

He also enjoys listening to metal - the music; not your iron, titanium, or copper, although these are cool stuff to him too. 

If he wasn’t a designer, he would be an undercover cop busting drug deals, or in another alternate universe, he would grow out his hair, join a metal band and headbang his days away. 

In the future, Edwin wants to own a food truck, and travels from city to city selling his favourite burgers.
Nina Arily
B.A.(Hons.) Interior Design

Since young, Nina has always busied herself with rearranging furniture and things in her room, re-laying them out whenever she got bored of the space. It is then of little surprise that she eventually went into design and graduated with a degree in Interior Design from The Glasgow School of Art. 

Nina is also a big fan of Japanese architecture and interiors. The experience of being in a tastefully designed space excites and humbles her at the same time. 

A dreamer and a linguist wannabe, she is constantly searching for words in space, that is when she is not painting a picture of unicorns and rainbows in her head.
