SCDA is a multi-disciplinary architectural practice established in 1995. Founding Principal and Design Director Soo K. Chan was the recipient of the inaugural President’s Design Award, Singapore Designer of the Year and is part of the Panel of Designers for Poliform. SCDA was awarded the inaugural Royal Institute of British Architects Award for International  Excellence  (2016);  the  RIBA  International  Award  for  OneKL  (2012)  and  the  Lincoln  Modern  (2003); and  the  SIA-Getz  Architecture  Prize  for  Emergent  Architecture  in  Asia  (2006),  in  addition  to  nine  Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Awards.

Our work strives for tranquility and calmness, qualified by space,  light and structural order. Architectural expressions are distilled to capture the spiritual essence of ‘place’. Our architecture and interiors are inspired by the cultural and climatic nuances of its context,  integrating landscape and blurring the distinction between the interior and exterior. These spaces are often characterized by lush gardens, water courts and air wells, effecting a sensuous engagement with the elements. Projects display sensitivity to the inherent beauty of natural materials, expressed through clarity in construction details and elemental architectural expression.


We are seeking an all-rounded individual for our New York office, who is willing to work outside the traditional boundaries of any one field of design. Applicant should be interested in undertaking varied roles and tasks combining skills in architecture, interior design (interior arch. & FF&E), and landscape. Project roles are fluid.
