Principals ---

I.A. Yip established our firm in 1976, a year after winning the Torgeson Architectural Prize for his design of the AOHeng Museum of Modern Graphics in Oslo, Norway.

Hannah Lau is our Director of Operations, and that rare combination of architect AND engineer.

Philosophy ---

Ultimately, our goal is to create high-quality buildings that are appropriate to their settings AND extremely functional. Over the years, we have completed over 400 projects, many of which have been featured in best-selling architectural books and international magazines.

Personal attention to each job ---
Each client receives one-on-one attention through the entire process from at least one of our architects.

Client participation ---
We invite our clients to participate and provide input during the design process and throughout construction: we never forget that our job is to make your dream a reality.

Creativity ---
Creativity is achieved through input from our architectural collective, as well as through brainstorming sessions with the client. Because each of our designs is driven by a unique customer dream, when each is completed it expands our conception of what is possible. Expect style and class that will not fade with the ages. 

Professionalism ---
We maintain a consistently high level of professional care and responsibility in each project. We guarantee all of our work to be of the highest quality, as we know our clients would expect nothing less. Your project is indeed our project.
