About CHANG ARCHITECTS

We believe that great design is a work from the mind, and the heart. We are passionate about creating innovative and exciting designs, evolving unique characteristics of each project. Our design aims to add values and enhance living for the users, while  co-existing harmoniously with nature and the environment. Designing from the spatial point of view is key. Space, which is intangible, is the essence of architecture. When designs are conceived this way, the most appropriate form ensues. The other important aspect is to understand the various elements of a project, including users’ needs and aspirations. It is through assimilation of the grounds and active collaborations that set the path for a meaningful design. Principal Born and raised in Singapore, Yong Ter's passion for architecture was discovered during his university years at the School of Architecture, National University of Singapore. Upon graduation, he sought apprenticeship with Mr. Tang Guan Bee for several years, before starting his practice, CHANG Architects, at the turn of this millennium. In his early years of practice, he was one of the 20 architects to be selected by the  Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore to showcase the works of young and emerging architects in Singapore. It was published in 20 Under 45: A Selection of Works  by Under-45 Singapore-registered architects. In recent years, the practice has been recognised with the following awards:  The President's Design Awards, Gold Medals for the Architects Regional Council of Asia (ARCASIA) Architecture Awards, Architecture Asia Awards for Emerging Architects,  the Design for Asia GRAND AWARD, the Chicago Athenaeum/Europe International Architecture Awards, the GREEN GOOD DESIGN Awards, the German Design Council's ICONIC AWARDS,  the World Architecture Festival Category Winner, and the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation. Yong Ter believes that architectural design is a work from the mind and the heart. While rationality and logic could fulfill functional briefs and achieve pragmatic efficiencies, an intuitive, poetic approach could resonate with the soul, and transcend limitations of rationalities. Therefore, part of the design process also includes unlearning and forgetting, and self-discoveries of the basics/origin.
