About Us

SAA is a leading full-service architecture practice headquartered in Singapore.

With over 50 years of design and built expertise, we are committed to the pursuit of excellence in the design and delivery of people-oriented architecture that connects communities with their urban environments.

Our Story

Early Years

Formerly known as Singapore Associate Architects, our firm was founded in 1970 on the belief that good architecture could improve the lives of Singaporeans. Influenced by the ethos that fuelled Singapore's rapid urbanisation, we gravitated towards architecture that exuded a strong civic character.

Clarifying Our Purpose

In 2010, our leadership charted a new direction for the firm. The articulation of our identity and design processes culminated in our values of being Urbanistic, Humanistic, and Optimistic. This ethos continues to guide us today, as we embark on award-winning endeavours.

A New Chapter

In 2019, we joined the Surbana Jurong Group as a member company. Today, we are part of a global network of 16,000 professionals across 40 countries — forming a collaborative collective of problem solvers for the built environment. We continue to focus on surpassing expectations in design and service delivery, strengthening our vision to positively shape the world around us.

Our Values
