We found Hwee Li by chance and are very glad that we did. She managed the renovations for our home which is a 30+ year old, 5-bedroom maisonette. The renovations included re-tiling, re-wiring, changing bedroom/toilet configurations, wardrobes, kitchen overhaul and re-painting. Hwee Li worked through the brief with us which was a smooth process. She was able to translate our imagination into reality, but more importantly provide alternatives when our first choice was impractical or too costly. We also appreciated her ability to re-imagine spaces which is something we look for in a designer. Hwee Li listened to our requirements and respected our aesthetic rather than trying to push hers through. We also commend Hwee Li for her project management skills and for completing the renovations largely on schedule. She was a very hands-on manager and was able to offer quick alternatives whenever we hit a roadblock. We had a pleasant experience working with Hwee Li which made the overall renovation process enjoyable. We gladly recommend Hwee Li as a designer with great attention to detail, solid design skills and strong project management abilities.

We bought our Bishan maisonette with the intention to completely overhaul the unit, as well as adding one bedroom to the existing 3 bedroom layout. We knew we needed an ID with similar experience. While at Qanvast, coincidentally we found Liid Studio who had completed a maisonette project at Bishan. It was not long before we set up a meeting with Hwee Li, the founder of Liid Studio, in early May 2018. My requests were clear - I needed 4 bedrooms, my daughter's room will come with attached toilet and I wanted an open concept kitchen. This began our journey of numerous meetings typically from 7pm, lasting 4-5 hours each session! We have probably clocked at least 50 hours of intensive and detailed discussions before we finally agreed on the design plan and the agreed pricing for the place we will soon call home. Renovation started in the middle of July, lasting a good 12 weeks! The only time we stepped into our unit during the renovation period was to decide the exact locations for all the sanitary wares! Prior to this time, all communications and last minute decisions were made via phone call or WhatsApp only! The next time we stepped into the unit was when Hwee Li was ready to handover the unit to us. The point I wanted to emphasize was that we literally entrusted the entire renovation into Hwee Li's hands, fully confident that she will manage and oversee all that we have discussed and agreed upon. Throughout the renovation period, we did not visit our unit except to decide on sanitary ware locations! Liid Studio, well, for us, simply Hwee Li, as they are synonymous, was truly a designer who considered all our needs, taking time to listen to each and every member of the family, including my three children's lifestyle, habits, likes and dislikes. What really helped was she did not ask us to choose our colors and textures from a myriad of hundreds of choices! Knowing our taste, plus her own professional vantage point of every detail, she made things a lot easier for us by short listing 3 preferred designs for us to select from. We were open to flow with her choices in many selections, trusting in her experience and design sense. I must say the actual outcome exceeded our expectations and we were glad we took her advice! Hwee Li has an amazing memory of the projects she had done before, always picking up her phone with thousands of pictures sorted out by projects, to find the picture which could help us visualize what she had in mind for all the little nooks and corners for our home. Slowly but surely, we could begin to visualize how our future home will look like. The design process was tiring but satisfying and even enriching for us. We liked the way every detail was documented meticulously and explained to us tirelessly. This was absolutely necessary to prevent gaps in our expectations. Whenever we forgot what was discussed, we could refer to her drawings, which were though not 3D but were exactly drawn out so all her contractors have a crystal clear plan to follow. It was a good 29-page document! This document helped us in our 'shopping' phase and was also an important tool for Hwee Li to communicate with all the different suppliers like lighting and flooring. She left no room for assumption. It was all clear and crisp. Throughout the last 5 times of renovation through 5 different IDs we had engaged prior to this Bishan home, I must say Hwee Li excelled them all! Like us, our children loved having their friends over their new home. We were all proud to show off the home we loved. We want to take this opportunity to thank Hwee Li and her team for their dedication and professionalism in handling our project. See photos taken here: https://liid.sg/residential/detail

We got to know Hwee Li of Liid Studio via Qanvast. Hwee Li spearheaded our house redesign and provided guidance on all our interior decor matters. We are ecstatic about the results that Hwee Li achieved for us. It is true testament to her talent that relatives and friends who visited our renovated home are in awe of the transformation from what it was before. Her work is of impeccable quality and taste. It was a pleasure working with Hwee Li. She is very detailed and spent a lot of time discussing with us to really understand our needs. Her focus on detail pushed us to think thoroughly what we wanted in our new home. The outcome was a very detailed renovation plan. Whilst the whole planning process was time consuming, it made the execution so seamless and organised and the renovation schedule went pretty much according to plan. Kudos to her project management skills! We must also commend on Hwee Li’s expertise in space utilisation. The resale condo we bought unfortunately has very 'unique' layout and irregular shape – not the easiest to work with! Our biggest issue was re-model of the kitchen. We have spoken to few other designers prior meeting Hwee Li, who could not achieve what we wanted for our kitchen. Hwee Li worked tireless, listened and understood what we wanted, impressed upon us with proposal that could incorporate all that we wanted! Needless to say, Hwee Li gained our trust and confidence. Having worked with her and completed the project, we find her honest and trust-worthy. We would strongly recommend Hwee Li of Liid Studio to handle your interior designing project.
