It was a great experience throughout my home renovation with Design Practice. Raymond was meticulous in the construction details and was able to communicate his solutions well to the contractors, and delivered to me a higher than expected quality of my now nicely renovated home. The workmanship of his team of contractors was outstanding as well. They are accommodating and approachable and are willing to share their experience on projects to help me make better decisions. Excellent job to team DP!

We picked Enzo as our ID as he was most resourceful with our storage challenge and space utilisation, yet did not quote us an exorbitant amount. His pricing is competitive but we felt he was more knowledgeable than the other IDs we met through Qanvast with regards to piping and electrical wiring. We didn’t regret our decision. We are happy with the detailed design and material selection process, as well as the renovation work itself. We are satisfied with the colour and material combination that he suggested. The workmanship is good and we were pleasantly surprised with the outcome of the lighting works that he proposed. We like the fact that when we requested certain functionalities in the different areas of the house, he was able to provide design suggestions that we won’t be able to come up with on our own. This is definitely the value that we were looking for in getting an ID instead of a contractor. We found the whole renovation experience a stress-free one, as I was very busy with work, and either my husband or myself could only visit the site 1-2x a week mostly on Fridays or weekends. Enzo would not bother us much with nitty gritty stuffs but he would contact us when we needed to make certain decisions. He is also responsible with the follow up of minor things post renovation and move in. You won’t regret engaging Enzo for your renovation works!

Reviewed by Gillian Tan・Submitted 2 Dec 2019・ Project completed May 2019・Designer Enzo

One of the reasons we picked The design practice because Enzo was very prompt in his response. We met up many times to discuss the design. Enzo had been very patient when we wanted to change something and he gave good suggestions and advice. Workmanship is also good, however there were some small areas that were not well done but he followed up and fixed them. We love the design of the house and i dont think there is any part of the design that we do not love.

About The Design Practice
Created in 2008 by Raymond Kua, THE DESIGN PRACTICE is a boutique design studio supported by a team of creatively driven designers who are determined to provide highly-skilled interior design consultancy and professional built project management works. While residential works represents the core of their portfolio, they have diversified to commercial and retail projects at their clients’ requests. The Team advocate timeless designs in their clients’ projects by discouraging short-lived trends; opting for an emphasis on quality and functionalities given the space constraint of the environment. They have no permanent formal designer language or style; each project uniquely revolves around a set of objectives and strategies that emerge from within the client’s project brief and space. Spaces are constantly challenged while they strive for originality in their designs while adhering with project intent, giving a unique persona to every project they undertake. They constantly explore possibilities to push design limits in spaces, with the objective to forge a longstanding relationship with their people and clients. Their clients’ dreams and lifestyles are one core source of inspirations, where The Design Practice tailor client's needs and lifestyle to quirky design ideas for each project.
