LASALLE College of the Arts
As an academic, Xinwei graduated from LASALLE in 2006 with a BA(Hons) Interior Design (1st Class Honours). In 2007, he completed a MA Design while teaching part-time in the Interior Design Programme. Since then, Xinwei has been a full-time staff member at LASALLE, and he was integral in developing and shaping the programme as the Programme Coordinator from 2008 to 2009. Under his direction, the programme was taken through successful validation by the Open University in 2009.
As a professional, he established ATELIER 01 in 2006, and the company has since completed a good range of architectural and interior projects, from private properties and high-rise residential units to commercial offices and F&B spaces. Together with numerous residential projects around the island, some completed commercial projects include Hard Rock Café Kuala Lumpur; Prudential Assurance Company in Orchard Delfi, Singapore; St. Regis Residences, Singapore; CIMB Bank, Singapore; CARTIMES Luxury Division, Alexandra Rd, Singapore; and the Latte e Miele chain of gelato outlets.
The projects are holistic interior and architectural proposals, where the company sees the project from the initial design proposal stages, professional visualisation and technical documentation through to the careful realisation of each project.
