Mr Seah Chee Huang has always been captivated by how architecture, when driven by clear purpose, can be a powerful vehicle to effect positive changes and enrich the everyday life of its community. He holds that architecture can be harnessed to synthesise and make sense of these varied dynamics to create more coherent environments and cohesive communities. These design values are reflected throughout his works, especially in community and sports developments.
With more than 15 years of experience under his belt, Chee Huang was one of the lead architects for the Singapore Sports Hub project, a large-scale integrated sports, recreation and lifestyle development. He has also led two prominent community and sports projects: Our Tampines Hub and Sembawang Sports & Community Hub. Both are integrated community, sports, civic, cultural and commercial lifestyle complexes in Singapore, where he is heavily involved in grassroots and resident’s engagement. Chee Huang also heads the firm’s designGROUP, focusing on enhancing design competency office-wide while championing various CSR efforts such as Project Bus Stop and Goodlife! Makan, an Elder Care Centre in Marine Terrace, Singapore.
Chee Huang also serves as the President of Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) and as a board member of the Board of Architects. An enthusiast in the academic realm, he has been an adjunct design tutor for the third-year Bachelor of Architecture design studios in the Department of Architecture at the National University of Singapore (NUS) since 2006.
