New studio in Singapore following alliance between Woods Bagot and Forum Architects

A partnership has been struck up between Woods Bagot and Forum Architects with the two firms opening a new studio in Singapore. With the opening of this new office, Woods Bagot now has studios in 16 locations worldwide; the firm has been registered in Singapore since February 2013. Leading the Singapore studio will be Principal of Woods Bagot Neil Salton with Founder and Director of Forum Architects Tan Kok Hiang.

“Singapore is a crucial market for us for two reasons,” said Neil Salton, Principal at Woods Bagot. “Many corporates are attracted to the potential cost savings of using Singapore as a location for their regional headquarters, as well as the opportunity to transform their working environments. Second, we see Singapore as a key hub for our work throughout South East Asia. We are currently involved in seven high-rise projects in Jakarta - including the Telkom Landmark Tower, the new headquarters for Indonesia’s largest telecommunications company.”

Forum Director, Tan Kok Hiang said: “The collaboration provides Forum with access to international expertise and project intelligence in particular in the areas of health, transport and Activity Based Working consultancy. Combining Forum’s local and regional experience with Woods Bagot’s global knowledge and insight will enrich our approach to responsive contextual design. Woods Bagot + Forum will come together to complement specific client and project requirements. Forum Architects will remain an independent practice.”
