Studio SKLIM is an award-winning design agency crafting bespoke spatial solutions. Based in Singapore, with a presence in India and operating globally.
Design opportunities are inherent. We firmly believe that these opportunities are waiting to be unleashed or given a new perspective. The organisation of “raw materials” in the form of environmental data, typographical conditions, cultural peculiarities, and technological limits form a new platform from which we initiate these extractions. Our fast-changing contemporary life demands a rethink and reorganisation of existing spatial parameters, making conceptual clarity and contemporary investigative research instrumental to our design process.
Banality breeds creativity. Each of our projects stems from its own unique set of pragmatics and constraints. We believe that the most basic design solutions are intrinsic and able to conjure the most complex relationships with this simplicity.
Understanding materialities involves both craft and experimentation. We like to play with materials, understanding their sensitivities and sometimes pushing them beyond their boundaries. We identify local crafts and resources to possibly bring a context to our work, believing in this mutual learning process to produce for the future.
No man is a design Island. We embark on design journeys with our clients and consultants, as a collective experience to explore market demands, environment sustainability, design technology, and socio-cultural landscapes with the hope of creating built environments that resonate with our design values.
