WOHA Architects was founded by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell in 1994. WOHA’s earliest projects comprised a series of private houses and the Church of St Mary of the Angels in Singapore, which were well-publicized and received many awards.

WOHA demonstrate a commitment to the implementation of sustainable yet innovative architecture, and within each project, they conceptualize all aspects of the architectural process: master planning, formal architecture, interior design, landscaping, lighting and furniture design.

As an indication of WOHA’s versatility and growing global recognition, the practice won two titles in two consecutive years (in four separate categories) at the 2009 and 2010 World Architecture Festival. The practice currently has projects under construction in Singapore, China, India, Indonesia and Thailand.
