It has been a pleasant experience engaging Calvin to do up our house. He is meticulous, experienced and responsible, which is exactly what we need for an ID and project management for our Reno. The schedule was tight but within schedule.
The sub-contractors are reliable. The house is delivered clean to us after the renovation in move in condition. Minimal cleaning was required.

We found FSI after weeding through several firms that gave us similar, standard, packaged-type of designs. FSI stood out with their ideas after taking into consideration what we wanted.
From design to project management to delivery, all of them have been completed perfectly and timely too!
We want to especially thank Raymond, Cheyenne and Perlinda for even going out of their way to deliver every time when called upon.
Even the after sales service is splendid!

Was a very pleasant experience working with Calvin. He took time and effort to understand what we liked, what we were aiming for and our budget constraints.
He was very responsive to queries, paid great attention to details, gave suggestions when we got stuck choosing materials and managed his sub-contractors well. It was good that we did all the planning and agreement in advance so that when it come to execution, it was smooth sailing all the way.
Am very happy with the results achieved and the service we received during the renovation.

When we first met Connie at a reno fair, she impressed us with her quick ideas and innovation for our slightly odd layout home. She was really confident and was able to suggest better ideas on top of the brief we’d given her.
Throughout the process of working with her, she has been very patient with us and provided us all the answers to our questions. She is Super responsive and is always a step quicker than us - always ready and prepared with answers that we sometimes have yet to think about!
It has been great working with her, and she has really helped to conceptualise the theme of our home accurately. We believe communication is key throughout the execution and process and so far, she has demonstrated above and beyond that.
We highly recommend her if you’re looking for someone who listens, gets it, responds and innovates for you.

Samuel was able to communicate his design ideas effectively, with the focus on our personal preference and practicality - which is of the utmost importance to my family.
He is often a text/call away from any queries we may have during the renovation process. His projected timeline was accurate. Together with his prompt follow ups, he finished the entire project on time. Everyone who had visited our home are impressed with the workmanship and design.

Whenever one mentions ‘renovation’, Kent from Swiss design comes to our mind. This in fact, is our second gig with Kent. We did our HDB renovation with Kent 7 years ago, and Kent has been taking care of us since then. Kent handled another recent renovation of our condominium flawlessly too. His professionalism, and meticulousness are top notch. It’s often that he could remember every single detail that we emphasized on, though we as house owners even forgot at times. On top of that, he always takes the costumer’s side, advising us constructively over practicality, durability and cost of the different choices we have to make along the process. He follows the budget proposal strictly and sees the whole project from the beginning to beyond the end. Even after the house was handed over to us, he still responsibly carries out maintenance/touch ups all the way into the warranty period. I have complete trust in Kent, referred him to many of my friends, and all my friends who used Kent’s service were happy to refer him around too!

My hubby and I will like to thank Lucas and his team for our cosy dream home. Lucas is friendly, responsible and detailed. He is responsive even beyond usual working hours (think he sleeps quite late). The price quotation is reasonable and the design offered is very attractive.
As they have in house carpenters, the materials used were quality and the workmanship were great. The project management team had strong follow-up. they were very helpful and sweet, thanks Rachel babe !!
We managed to move in to our dream home within 5-6 months from first meeting to planning to handing over. We think that they definitely lived up to the cost, workmanship and design.
Will definitely recommend Archive Design for anyone who wants a comfortable home with good layout, reasonable cost and great workmanship!

My interior designer Ken gave good recommendations to fit my reno requirement within budget, and also addresses my concerns fast. The whole reno went on smoothly and the workers are skillful.
Did a new kitchen cabinet with quartz top, finishing is good. He recommended plastering my old kitchen wall tiles which I didn't know about, that helped saved money from hacking. Overlays on my kitchen and living room plus painting all done nicely.

I am writing to express my Satisfaction over the successful make over of my unit. I am very pleased with the end result, most specially my kitchen now is not only functional but also spacious and beautiful. Credit must acknowledge with all the hard-works and efforts of the I.D.

Most important is that when we informed her from the beginning that the renovation works have to be completed by a specific deadline. Thanks to Kate, able to handle well and coordinate with their respective contractors and suppliers. Finally our house is completed just on time, this special effort means a lot to me personally as what the current situation now.

Reviewed by Nurul Asyikin Redzuan・Submitted 24 May 2020・Project completed Oct 2019・Designer Ryan
After going through a few IDs listed from Qanvast, we decided on Design Story. Ryan was our ID.
He was approachable and understand what we wanted for our home. He carefully planned and knows how to utilize spaces and work within our budget range.
Having a built-in (full length) wardrobe for the master and the common room, each compartment designed to cater to our clothes size. On top of that we had a hidden shoe rack (hides our bomb shelter at the same time), a cabinet space, and a prayer hall. These align seamlessly in our living room.
We wanted to have more light entering the house, hence we decided on haking half of the kitchen wall without compromising storage options. We had cabinets on both sides of the kitchen with perfect cutouts for the fridge and a tall cabinet for our oven.
Even after the renovation, Ryan is easily contactable to rectify issues that we faced.

We were sourcing for a reliable and responsible ID and I was introduced to Edward by my brother. Throughout the whole renovation journey, from conceptualising to planning and rectification, Edward and Joshuae were both very accommodating and open to listening to our views. They provided us with constant updates, through videos and photos in our group chat. They also provided great opinions and suggestions to meet our needs. Even when we spotted some defects along the way, no questions were asked and they were very willing to help us rectify. They also kept to our budget and timelines. Workmanship is also great and we were very happy that our dream house is finally done. Most importantly, it was done in a breeze! To be honest, the service rendered by Edward and Joshuae were really top notch. I would definitely recommend them to our friends in future. Thank you Edward and Joshuae!
