Having acquired a 5 room flat in Bishan, my wife and I were in need of a Designer/contractor to do an extensive renovation. We had a number of possible candidates, all from recommendations of friends and relatives. In due course, we got quotations from three, including one from Hoft. The quotations were competitive and in the end we decided to award the job to Hoft, even though they were the highest bidder. The recommendation for Hoft came from my son Mark, who had used them for renovating his condo unit, for a sum in excess of 100k. Mark told me that Ethan was just about the most accommodating third party he had ever worked with, and he also particularly liked his design recommendations. In addition, Hoff offered a computer generated design rendition of the proposed solution, at a cost of $2000. With this feature, my wife and I were able to see, almost in photographic realism, the design choices as well as choice of materials, color schemes and various options under considerations. This particular service is just about the most useful tool, as it saved time in choice of materials and design options, ruling out unexpected surprises at the time of execution. It is a feature which I recommend with absolutely no reservation. Hoft was to have completed the project in 8 weeks, but shortly after work started, the Covid19 pandemic intervened and work was abruptly halted .Confusion reigned for a considerable time, but Ethan was eventually able to resume work by sourcing labour from elsewhere In the end, Hoft completed the project at no extra costs. A tribute to Ethan and Hoft. Furthermore, because of the computer graphic service, the project was accomplished without any variation orders, since both ourselves and Ethan knew what we wanted to achieve. The one exception to this was the addition of window grills which my wife insisted on near the end of the project. For information. the total renovation cost amounted to $110k. In contrast to the easy working relationship with Ethan, a niece who 2 years ago completed her renovation project described her experience as “pulling teeth without anaesthesia”. All in all, therefore, I have complete confidence in recommending Ethan and Hoft for your renovation project. You will most certainly be happy that you did. Chung Sing Yee

Got to know HOFT from my housing agent who also had his house done by them. Decided to meet up with them at the last minute after consulting 3 other IDs. Best decision ever! Not only did Gabriel & Sheldon accommodated to the last min request to meet, they were also efficient in providing their proposal and artwork a couple days later. They managed to incorporate my requests with their ideas, were not pushy and provided the necessary professional inputs. Gabriel & Sheldon took care of everything and helped to coordinate most of the delivery. As I was very busy at work, they would always update me on the progress and send pics via WhatsApp. I could work with a peace of mind, leaving my house in their good hands. During the whole reno period, I stepped into the house only once! Whenever I was undecided or confused, they would always provide their guidance and offer advice. As I was also concerned about budget, they were also honest to advise what other alternatives there were without compromising on other aspects. To attain the aesthetic they were striving for and to help me save costs, they even helped to source some stuff from Taobao too! In the end, the total cost was within the quotation even though I requested for additional carpentry at the last minute when carpentry works have also started. Lastly, they also handed over as per the dead line given. After hearing many reno horror stories, Gabriel & Sheldon definitely exceeded my expectations! Would highly recommend HOFT to anyone who needs an ID!

My husband and I engaged Gabriel for our home renovation. He was referred by one of our close friends who is very pleased with his design and service. We are overall happy and satisfied with the renovation works. In the design discussions, Gabriel was very accommodating and gave much valuable inputs. He was very approachable and was also proactive in his follow-ups with/for us. The whole renovation process was fuss-free - We did not have to worry about the quality as he did the necessary checks and requested for the required replacement/change for us. He was also very prompt in his replies. As both of us were very busy with our work then, we are very grateful to have Gabriel to update and follow-up on the progress. After we moved in, he also made a point to visit and double check for issues with the house. He is definitely a responsible ID and has made our renovation experience a positive one. We will recommend HOFT/Gabriel if you are looking for an ID for your house!
