We are a Singapore-based practice specializing in buildings and environments. Ong Ker-Shing and Joshua Comaroff began working together as Lekker Design in 2002, after studying architecture and landscape at Harvard University.

Our approach combines the specific requirements of the client with a range of ongoing explorations in geometry, in material and detail, and in architectural meanings and typologies. These do not result in a signature style so much as a way of thinking about how the elements of a building might go together.

We work for a range of private individuals and firms, including Hermès, JTC, Eu Yan Sang and The Hour Glass. Institutional clients include Yale University-National University of Singapore, Singapore Biennale, The National Parks Board (NParks), in addition to many Singapore government agencies and councils.
