Michael Leong

  • Senior Executive Director

With a strong background in urban planning and extensive experience in complex buildings, Michael brings deeply considered insights on sustainable design to a wide spectrum of project typologies. His systematic and thorough approach of designing from a macro to micro perspective not only ensures buildings dialogue with their environment, they also create inclusive spaces that promote human health and wellness.

Presently, Michael leads the design for the Woodlands Health Campus (WHC) project, which will be one of Singapore’s largest healthcare facilities when fully completed. Its design integrates technology and nature to deliver patient-centred care and to promote healing through nature, using innovative sustainability solutions such as passive design, adeptly addressing urban and climatic challenges to optimise the well-being and comfort of the building's occupants.​

Since joining SAA in 2008, Michael has contributed to numerous award-winning projects for SAA, including Northpoint City, jem, and St Joseph’s Home.
