RIOS’ presence in Singapore positions the firm to deliver hyperlocal design in the city and Southeast Asia
International design collective RIOS has expanded its offices to Singapore, bolstering a global perspective and commitment to creating projects that promote wellness, spark joy, and prioritize ecological health and environmental resilience.
As one of the world’s leading smart cities, Singapore fosters a people-centered culture by investing in initiatives such as the Singapore Green Plan 2030 and Lively Places Challenge. This commitment to enabling possibilities for a better future resonates with our vision for creating places and experiences that reinforce wellbeing for all.
“Singapore asks itself, ‘Where are we today? Where are we headed tomorrow? How do we get there better and faster?' — That's exactly the kind of thinking that inspires us at RIOS.”
We are energized by Singapore’s celebration of landscape and biophilic design principles as predominant expressions. The connectedness between architecture and landscape is central to our interdisciplinary practice, making Singapore an inspirational locale and participant in our hyperlocal approach to designing future cities.
“In the Singaporean market, one of our biggest strengths that we can bring is the ability to celebrate public realm and bring identity to districts.”
RIOS’ commitment to designing for a holistic experience entails a community-driven process that considers diverse points of view and the history and culture of a place. Our expanded presence positions us to delve deeper into the culture and perspectives of Singapore and other major cities in Southeast Asia, tailoring our global expertise to create unique identities that feel authentic and new.
The new office is situated in the Working Capitol on Keong Saik Road, a place that is grounded in Singapore’s history. The neighborhood is a cultural and creative hub that inspires us as we think about the future.
