When it comes to re­fined in­te­ri­ors, one name fre­quently comes to mind. Dwell In­te­rior De­sign has been cre­at­ing el­e­gant in­te­ri­ors for the past 12 years. Its port­fo­lio spans not just pri­vate apart­ments and landed homes in pres­ti­gious dis­tricts but also com­mer­cial projects and over­seas ven­tures.

The de­sign stu­dio is housed in an award-win­ning her­itage con­ser­va­tion house in the up­scale River Val­ley area and new clients are im­me­di­ately im­pressed by the live kitchen stu­dio, a trib­ute to its founder Ed Ong’s per­sonal pas­sion for de­sign­ing high-end be­spoke kitchens.

Since its found­ing in 2005, Dwell has quickly grown into a full-ser­vice in­te­rior de­sign stu­dio. Among its no­table projects are be­spoke res­i­dences at Re­gency Park at Nathan Road and The Coast in Sentosa Cove. In 2010, Ong be­came the first Asian de­signer to be ap­pointed as the cre­ative lead for the de­sign of Euro­pean kitchen fit­tings com­pany Blum’s show­rooms across South­east Asia. The two-year col­lab­o­ra­tion cul­mi­nated in the launch of new show­rooms in Sin­ga­pore, Jakarta, Surabaya, Ho Chi Minh City and Manila, but more im­por­tantly, it pro­pelled the young stu­dio onto the in­ter­na­tional stage.

Aside from its ver­sa­til­ity in han­dling projects of dif­fer­ent types, Dwell is known for de­liv­er­ing ex­cep­tional qual­ity. It works with crafts­men, ser­vice providers and sup­pli­ers who are the best in their trade, so clients can be as­sured of dura­bil­ity, re­li­a­bil­ity and safety, as well as timely com­ple­tion for ev­ery project.

Dwell’s strengths and suc­cess are largely at­trib­uted to Ong’s phi­los­o­phy that tal­ent is meant to serve. “De­sign must re­spect and serve the needs and wants of the client,” he says. “Only then can a busi­ness achieve its tan­gi­ble goals.”

Each project be­gins with time taken to lis­ten to the client. Ong be­lieves that trust is the cor­ner­stone of a healthy client-de­signer re­la­tion­ship, which in turn en­sures the best pos­si­ble de­sign out­comes. Ev­ery de­signer at Dwell works hard to earn and keep that trust.

The re­sult is al­ways dis­tinc­tive de­signs that res­onate deeply with clients.

“De­sign must re­spect and serve the needs and wants of the client.” — Ed Ong, cre­ative di­rec­tor and founder, Dwell In­te­rior De­sign
