When architect Lim Koon Park named his firm Park + Associates in 1999, people wondered who his associates were. But in reality, he was very much a one man show. “Park Architects just didn’t have a nice ring to it,” Lim laughs.
He has since lived up to the name, with a team of over 40. “The objective was always to grow.”
But he doesn’t just consider his colleagues associates – his clients and builders are too.
“Not only must the client and architect have the same objective, but there has to be a good brief and the right builder to have a memorable project,” says Lim.
