ming architects is a design-focused architectural firm in Singapore known for creating well-crafted contemporary homes suited for modern living. The practice was established by Tan Cher Ming, who graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2007. Having worked at several renowned architecture firms in Singapore before starting his practice, Cher Ming has extensive experience in both the architecture and interior design of residential landed houses and specializes exclusively in contemporary luxury homes.
Over the years, the firm has rapidly become known for its bold and elegant architecture and has been widely featured in prominent publications such as Singapore Tatler Homes, Cubes and D+A, as well as international architecture journals Archdaily, Houzz and Habitus. The practice has a strong focus on both the building architecture as well as the interior design, arising from the view that holistic architecture has no boundaries between the two. In 2022, Cher Ming was awarded the winner in the Singapore Tatler Homes Design Awards for Best Architectural Concept for his project Carve House.
Cher Ming, a registered architect in Singapore and member of the Singapore Institute of Architects, takes great pride in each of his projects, and is passionate about the process of creating well-designed homes together with his clients. He is heavily involved in and personally oversees each of his projects from the first concept design sketch to delivery and handover of the home. He seeks to create architecture that is well-suited to each individual homeowner, guiding them through the whole process from the start of conceptual design to the completion of the building project.
