Wenhui is a partner of SPARK having worked with the studio for over 12 years. She has worked on most of the major national and international portfolio projects undertaken by the studio.
She has extensive experience in the design and management of complex urban developments, master planning and architecture.
Wenhui is responsible for the design of many of SPARK’s award winning and internationally celebrated projects such as Fai-Fah in Bangkok, nominated for an Aga Kahn Award and Starhill Gallery in Kuala Lumpur which secured SPARK the German Design Council’s “Architect of the Year” award in 2014.
Wenhui has led several of SPARK’s key mixed-use projects including the recently completed Shekou Gateway One in Shenzhen, China. These projects are often characterised by complex multi-stakeholder clients, where consultation is an essential part of the creative process.
Wenhui is a champion of SPARK’s ethos that “architecture and design should make peoples’ lives better”. Her contribution to SPARK’s World Architecture Festival winning Homefarm and Beach Hut are a testament to this.
Wenhui’s particular interest in social sustainability is demonstrated in her leadership of the studio’s research and charity programmes which, in collaboration with organisations such as Blue Cross and Fai-Fah, has developed a number of designs that seek to address issues of social and sustainable development.
Wenhui has exhibited and sold her art work at a leading Singaporean art gallery, the proceeds of which were donated to a local children’s charity.
Wenhui was a winner of the Singapore Women’s Weekly Great Women of our Time Award Design & Style category 2016 focussed on “high achieving working women who are inspiring game changers making an impact in the city.”
Wenhui has been an invited guest speaker at several international events most recently at the University of Queensland and at the Asia Pacific Architecture forum in Brisbane.
Wenhui is currently chairperson of the Singapore judging panel of the Asia Property Awards.
