Lawrence Puah

Founder & Director of akiHAUS Design Studio

Lawrence Puah is the founder and director of akiHAUS Design Studio, an award-winning firm founded in 2010.

His journey in design began long before he entered architecture school at the National University of Singapore, first honing his skills in graphic and web design, before finally embarking on his architectural journey, including an eight-year apprenticeship with President’s Design Award recipient Richard Ho of RichardHo Architects.

“I have always been drawn to all creative art forms, yet at the same time, I am very logical by nature. Architecture school was an inevitability, which eventually led me down the path of a designer,” Puah shares.

He is now an associate member of the Singapore Institute of Architects, a professional member of the Society of Interior Designers Singapore, and accredited as an Interior Design Practitioner: Class 1 (ID1) with the Singapore Interior Design Accreditation Council.
