Mr Voon Wong


Creative Director,
Viewport Studio

(United Kingdom/ Singapore)

Voon Wong studied at National University of Singapore and the Architectural Association in London. After graduation, he worked in the offices of Rick Mather Architects, Zaha Hadid and the Danish architectural practice C. F. Møller. In 1997, he set up his own architecture studio in London, Voon Wong Architects, to pursue private projects. In 2001 he started to work on product design with Benson Saw, a graduate from London’s Royal College of Art. They went on to be in the selection for the Italian Compasso D’Oro prize.

In 2006 the businesses combined to form VW+BS, a multidisciplinary practice focussing on product design and architecture, including the award-winning Upper Class cabins and on-board bars for Virgin Atlantic. Voon Wong was also conferred the Designer of the Year Award at the President’s Design Award Singapore 2012, based on a body of award-winning product design work.

The latest iteration of the business is Viewport Studio, with Voon Wong as the creative director of a multidisciplinary agency working on a variety of projects. Viewport Studio works with a wide range of clients, including Fontana Arte, Royal Selangor, and those in the aviation industry, such as Delta Air Lines and EasyJet, as well as hotel projects and private architectural work. Voon’s practice has since completed over 150 architectural projects, mostly in London and Singapore
