Established in 1995 by founding principal and design director Soo Chan, SCDA’s 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 work is inspired by the cultural and climatic nuances of context; integrating landscape, water features and blurring the boundary between inside and out. Spaces are characterized by lush gardens, water courts and air wells, effecting a sensuous engagement with the elements. A sensitivity to the inherent beauty of natural materials is expressed through clarity in construction details, and elemental architectural expression.
