We have been designing luxury private residences – both apartments and houses – since 1997 and have completed over 150 projects mostly in London and Singapore. We have extensive experience in the intricacies of planning, listed buildings, interior design and more recently commercial hotels and apartment refurbishments for developers.
Aviation, automotive, marine or trains: for us it’s all about the journey, the experience, the interaction with the design but also the people along for the ride. It’s not just a method of transport but how we explore the world. Our designs have customer and brand at their heart.
Our total experience approach to service design begins with an immersion into the customer mind-set. Gaining real understanding of who they are and their expectations, allows us to build an image of their hopes and dreams. We map out the end to end journey and use this to tailor touch points, creating a brand blueprint for delivery.
We have spoken widely at conferences and have even been employed as mediators and design judges. Beyond working for our clients, we want to engage with what is happening around us and share some of our experiences (we are inveterate travellers) and occasionally create a dialogue. So we produce a magazine, sometimes in print (on very nice paper) and always online. We write about design, architecture, travel and experience at Viewport Magazine
Exhibition design, retail concepts and shop interiors as well as some large scale showrooms are all part of our portfolio. We are happy to work with big budgets and small. Although we are not trend driven, we are interested in new materials and experimentation. Simplicity and clarity are our buzzwords.
From award-winning lights for Fontana Arte to pewter tableware for Royal Selangor, we have worked with a variety of leading brands and for ourselves in creating a series of singular objects, which are both functional and expressive. We have worked in many different materials including bone china, electroluminescent wire and wood.
The evolution of our studio
Viewport Studio is an evolution of an existing business. We started as Voon Wong Architects in 1997. In 2006 we became VW+BS, an international studio working on product design and architecture. In 2014 we have joined up with more designers from the aviation business to create Viewport Studio, with a wide portfolio of experience and projects.We would be delighted to hear from you about any design challenge.
