WOHA have collaborated with mafi in Singapore using mafi on multiple areas including flooring, custom stairs, walling and cabinetry.
WOHA Architects was founded by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell in 1994. Wong was born in 1962 and graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1989, whilst Hassell was born in 1966 and graduated from the University of Western Australia in 1989. WOHA’s earliest projects comprised a series of private houses and the Church of St Mary of the Angels in Singapore, which were well publicised and received many awards. When the practice won the competitions for two MRT stations in 2000, WOHA moved on to larger scale projects, initially in Singapore, and then throughout the region.
These project types range from from apartment towers to luxury resorts, mass-transit stations, condominiums, hotels, educational institutions, and public buildings.
As an indication of WOHA’s versatility and growing global recognition, the practice won two titles in two consecutive years (in four separate categories) at the World Architecture Festival in 2009 and 2010. The practice currently has projects under construction in Singapore, China, India, Indonesia and Thailand. A traveling exhibition devoted exclusively to their work opened at the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Germany, in December 2011, and three substantial monographs – WOHA: The Architecture of WOHA, WOHA: Selected Projects Vol. 1 and WOHA: Breathing Architecture – have already been published.
