Brewin Design Office

Brewin Design is a design company based in Singapore and Jakarta. Founded in 2012 by Robert Cheng, Brewin Design is dedicated to creating unique architecture, furniture and interior design.

Robert Cheng was born in Pittsburgh, USA in 1977. After spending his first decade in Singapore, where his family lived, he went to study in the UK, then Robert studied at the Rhode Islan School of Architecture in the United States and received a Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1999. In 2007, he obtained a master's degree in urban design from Harvard Graduate School of Design.

After graduation, Robert worked as an architect at Tsao & Mckown Architects in New York City, where he was architect Calvin Tsao. Later moved to Paris to join Jean Nouvel and work on projects in Southeast Asia. In the 30 years since he left Singapore, Robert has been baptized by different cultures and values in cities between Asia, the Americas and Europe, inevitably affecting his design principles and design philosophy as artists and designers. At the same time, he also brought a wealth of experience to Robert, laying the foundation for the company's culture.

In 18 years of experience, Robert has developed details that are passionate about making interior design and building customization. Robert believes that the structural and material characteristics of the design are directly reflected in the final result. Rober developed an architectural design principle that is closely related to “things of things”, ensuring the expression of the conceptual design language in his work. Robert has an in-depth understanding of the history of interior design and has conducted in-depth explorations of the changing times of Western and Eastern cultures, which often affect the essence of his project.

Brewin Design's design and craftsmanship are handmade and customized. Consisting of skilled manufacturing processes, the exploration of materials used and detailed details, interdisciplinary design is driven by collaboration with artisans and builders around the world.
