Yvonne Tan

Director, DP Green

We combine the knowledge of all our team members to ensure that our projects are successful even 20 years down the road. It’s not just about aesthetics, but also the amount of design research done.

Yvonne co-heads DP Green, a Landscape Architecture and Arboriculture consultancy design studio based in Singapore. A practitioner with over 27 years in landscape planning, placemaking and urban design for both local and international projects, she has acquired deep experience across across various typologies ranging from mixed-use, residential, civic & institution, recreational and waterfront developments to park infrastructure.

She approaches projects with a keen interest in place-making and creating therapeutic and species-rich habitats within dense urbanised cities. When it comes to landscape design, she believes in working in tandem with developers and clients to exponentially value-add to any project. Her portfolio of work includes the award-winning Sengkang General Hospital as well as Singapore’s first integrated community and lifestyle hub, Our Tampines Hub and the Halic Tersane project in Istanbul, Turkey.

Actively involved in the landscape industry, Yvonne has been the Chairperson of the Landscape Technical Committee of the Singapore Green Building Council since 2016 and is the 1st Vice President on the Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects Council. A champion for the power of green spaces and sustainability, she had also been invited as a keynote speaker and panellist for various conferences and councils around the world including the Indian Green Building Council Green Building Congress in India in 2019.
