About

A partnership between Stanley Tham (BSc Building, National University of Singapore) and Kusnin Tan (BIA Interior Architecture, University Of New South Wales), KNQ Associates began in 2004 as a boutique interior design studio specialising in the art of making over living spaces – a one-of-a-kind service called Home Rejuvenation. We simplified the process of transforming tired looking rooms into stylish yet functional environments, and offered our clients a viable creative option to revamp their homes without the fuss and timeframe of a typical renovation job. Our work and concept were covered extensively across the local and international media at that time, eventually culminating in an invitation to lend a helping hand to improve the living conditions of a family in need on the local TV programme Renovaid.

 

Over the years, our work philosophy and ethics have also earned us many excellent testimonials and friends amongst our clients. By 2017, we have grown into a 6-person setup, with team members skilled in areas of conceptual development, space planning, project/ site management, 3D/ CAD drawing production as well as home accessorising and styling.

Design Philosophy and Process

 

Today, we are focused on designing residences for like-minded individuals who share our passion for good design. By adopting a human-centric approach for every project, we want to ensure the result is always tailored to suit the occupant’s lifestyle, needs and requirements. We yearn to not only create spaces which are practical and aesthetically pleasing, but more importantly high quality, emotive homes which engage the owners on a much deeper level. Whether it is a personal home gallery for a precious art collection or a bathroom which throws up memories of a spa visit, we truly understand the joys of living and how to convert those dreams into real experiences that can be enjoyed at home.

OUR TEAM

Stanley Tham

Co-founder

A self-proclaimed perfectionist who lives by the quote ‘Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication’. He dislikes ostentation and clutter all his life. Art, books and music drive his mind constantly. Methodological but never hesitating to break the rules where necessary. He is always looking into the future (though he feels nostalgic all the time).

Kusnin Tan

Co-founder

Born in Indonesia and now a Singaporean, he dreams of designing houses at young age. A strong believer in the effects of good design on one’s lifestyle and human behaviors. He never forgets that form should always follow function and that God is in the details. One can easily spot him at the museums or art galleries when he is not participating in any marathons.
