IN-EXPAT X UPSTAIRS_

Location: The backyard of IN-EXPAT’s carpentry workshop. “I love the raw potential of a work-in-progress location. It represents exactly what we do and what keeps us going,” Dennis Cheok says of the backyard, which is still under construction.

Design philosophy:
At the very core, we want to create spaces that are thoughtful, meaningful and relevant.

Inspiration:
Every project has a story waiting to be told. Inspiration comes in many forms: from the clients, their lifestyles and beliefs; the raw space, its surroundings and history; the materials, their origins and potential… there’s so much more!

Passion for design:
In interior design, we love the ability to dream; the challenges of translating that dream into something pragmatic and functional, and the pure joy of seeing the end result that’s real, tangible and alive.

“Design is problem-solving. A good designer should – pragmatically – have a critical mind, an eye for detail, and at a more visceral level, a distinctive problem-solving viewpoint and aesthetic.”
– Dennis Cheok, Creative Director
