Ng San Son


As an architect and educator, San Son is guided by the desire to emotionally and functionally connect people with a space. He believes that design should welcome exploration and interaction, and encourages innovative adaptation of the space by users.

Being highly inquisitive, his body of work is richly diverse in typology. From a wildlife reserve designed for an immersive experience, to community buildings that express the character of its place, to a subterranean worship hall that establishes a new link while preserving the historic integrity of a national monument, he explores and enhances the way people interact with architecture.

San Son was named one of twenty promising Singaporean architects under the age of 45 by the Urban Redevelopment Authority in 2017. Apart from being an Architect and Director, he is also a design studio master at the Department of Architecture, National University of Singapore and examiner at the Board of Architects.
