DS Squared Architects are design driven on making clients’ needs and aspirations a realisation. Intertwining function, permanence and beauty, great design captures imaginations, transforms organisations and brings return on capital investments.


Architecture not only reflects our time and culture, but also shapes it. As Architects and designers, we create settings to inspire the way we live, learn, heal, work and play. It is our essential humanity that moves us to do good, create places that facilitate activity and bring joy to the human spirit.
