Change is the only constant in an ever-progressing world. Recognizing this, DP Design explores how designing an interior space goes beyond a direct, strategic response to a building’s intrinsic architectural form across all its projects, to examine and embody the evolving relationship between man and built environment.

Designing Change, is a visual discourse into the creative psyche of its interior-architects and how the firm has articulated man’s relationship with the built environment into design. Unique and engaging, the book offers an in-depth look at the fundamentals and perceptions of interior spaces across various typologies; inviting you to rethink design and the practice of design so as to inspire a new paradigm in design approach and perspective of space.

DP Design in an integral part of the Singapore-based international architecture practice, DP Architects and its group of companies. With over 30 years of experience in the interior design, space planning and project management industry, DP Design is adept at handling and designing for multi-disciplinary large-scale projects. The specialist arm also works hand-in-hand with DP Architects to achieve holistic design practices.

Designing Change is the second volume by DP Design, following Designing Spaces.

With a deep concern for the built environment, DP Design seeks to create spaces – spaces that are memorable, relevant and sustainable, and has delivered a sterling international body of works. The design firm takes a holistic approach to interior spaces; a direct response to a building’s intrinsic architectural and formal relationships, endeavouring to preserve and enhance the natural behaviour of a building. In doing so, DP Design creates environments that seamlessly integrate people, architecture, technology and the ultimate purpose of the space.


Architecturally trained, Mike Lim (editor) is the principal designer of DP Design and a director at DP Architects. Responsible for the concept design and design development across a wide range of building type, he believes that the commitment to perfection permeates every facet of a designer’s life. Notably, Mike was the interior designer of The Dubai Mall (Dubai, UAE), Doha Festival City mall (Doha, Qatar), Cinemaxx Junior (Jakarta, Indonesia) as well as of prominent projects in Singapore such as Resorts World Sentosa, Paragon Shopping Centre and the recently completed YOTEL Singapore, unique “hotels within a hotel” One Farrer Hotel and Spa, and Our Tampines Hub, Singapore’s pioneer model of an integrated sports and lifestyle community hub.
