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.
Currently, he leads the design for the Woodlands Health Campus (WHC) project, which will be one of Singapore’s biggest healthcare facilities when completed. Its design integrates technology and nature to deliver person-centred care and promote healing through nature, using innovative methods such as passive design that tackles urban and climate conditions to maximise building users’ comfort and health.
Since joining SAA in 2008, Michael has contributed to numerous award-winning projects for SAA, including Northpoint City, jem and St Joseph’s Home.
