We must have courage and patience; we need not fear as we have the strengths and beating hearts of many passionate individuals to make change happen.

There are two things that Ms Angelene Chan, CEO of DP Architects, holds close to her heart – Design and People. Tapping into her innate ability to balance practical requirements of a brief and invigorate the local context in her designs, Angelene has built an impressive portfolio of works showcasing authentic and purposeful architecture that fulfils the needs of the users and community.

She received recognition for her creation in 2010 when she was listed as one of Singapore’s 20 leading architects under the age of 45 by the Urban Redevelopment Authority. In 2015, she received the President’s Design Award (P*DA) for her design of Sunray Woodcraft Construction Headquarters. In 2018, she was named P*DA Designer of the Year by President Halimah Yacob, Singapore’s highest design accolade. Among her portfolio of works are award-winning projects that she spearheaded. These include The Dubai Mall, Resorts World Sentosa and the transformation of Wisma Atria shopping mall along Orchard Road.

As CEO, Angelene envisions a much stronger and bolder DP. She is steering the firm in strategic growth towards further international extension; increased specialisation in architecture-related disciplines and to harness the power of technology to enhance design.

An active contributor to the profession and building industry, Angelene sits on Singapore’s Board of Architects, Urban Redevelopment Authority and Professional Engineers Board. She is also the Chairperson of URA Design Advisory Committee and the Vice-Chairman of Dover Park Hospice.
