ming architects is a design-focused architectural firm in Singapore known for creating well-crafted contemporary homes suited for modern living. Over the past years, the firm’s projects have rapidly become known for bold and elegant spaces and have been widely featured in prominent publications such as Singapore Tatler Homes, Cubes magazine and D+A magazine, as well as international online architecture journals Archdaily and Houzz. The practice has a strong focus on both the building exterior as well as the interior design, arising from the view that holistic architecture has no boundaries between the two.
Cher Ming, a registered architect in Singapore and member of the Singapore Institute of Architects, takes great pride in each of his projects, and is passionate about the process of creating well-designed homes together with his clients. He seeks to create architecture that is well-suited to each individual homeowner, guiding them through the whole process from the start of conceptual design to the completion of the building project.
Design – Starting with the concept design, we develop the main architecture schematic through the use of hand-built models, sketches, CAD software and 3D rendering programs in three dimensional space. This helps our clients to understand clearly the spaces that we create, involving them in the design process.
Submission – As architects in Singapore, we have extensive experience in the process of government authority submissions and obtaining the necessary clearances. We also assist in the recommendation of other consultants such as the structural/mechanical engineer and quantity surveyor as required.
Detail – The development of each individual detail from the overall building façade down to the smallest joinery handle is crafted with utmost care and passion. We believe that good design comprises both aspects of aesthetics and performance, as well as practicality and ease of maintenance.
Tender – The open tender process ensures a detailed breakdown and fair comparison of costs for the client’s benefit. We invite, evaluate the tenders and award the contract on behalf of the client. Over the years, we have built good working relationships with many reputable and established builders. Selecting a trustworthy builder is critical to the success of the project.
Interior – Our experience in high-end luxury project interiors shows in all our houses. The interior design is as much an essential component of the home as the exterior. Our passion for design results in highly tailored and personalised outcomes for each of our projects, specific to the individual client.
Instruction – During the construction period, we administer the building contract as the project lead and conduct regular site meetings and inspections. Co-ordination between the builder, consultants and specialists/suppliers on behalf of the client is handled by us, up to completion & handing over of the project upon TOP/CSC.
Pricing – Upon discussion
