Never design for one condition; good design lies in its adaptability to changing times and needs.

Ms Lesley Lim has extensive knowledge and experiences with the full process of architectural and project management. Her early days as Project Architect has equipped her with the skills and know-how necessary to formulate design briefs, to lead an architectural team through the various stages of project work, to oversee construction and handover to end-users. In 2002, Lesley was relocated to China to set up DPA’s head branch office in Shanghai and has helped expand its reach and presence into three locations – Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou. 

Today, Lesley is based in DP’s headquarters in Singapore. While she continues to be actively involved in the management of design and project administration for the Chinese market, Lesley has also joined the current Malaysian directors in managing the offices in Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur with the goal of establishing it as a full scope architectural practice. Bringing her strength and experience in design development and implementation to the table, Lesley’s driving mentorship and in-house training programmes, as well as the recruitment of appropriate talents so as to ensure the sustainability and advancement of the two offices. In fact, to date, the office strength in Malaysia has grown from 40 to 100 across all levels.
