After his 40 years experience of maintaining a design and architectural service and developing business in the scene’s continuous competition, Chew has now put ease on his daily chores to
supervise the lively growth of Enviro Tec. He is also keen in being a mentor for young architects within the company; an exceptional attitude to passionately keep busy days running smooth in his advance years.
Devoting to nature earth’s simplicity for his life principles, Chew has his ideal view of working space as an open space with quiet atmosphere and surrounding natural resources along with the company of Marvin, Enviro Tec’s vegan pet, rather than rifling through jumbled businesses of a metropolitan city.
Edifying herself to an extensive mélange of formal and professional education in Singapore and Australia, Ming exudes her versatility in implementing cultural contexts and crafted elements into design. She worked through her beliefs on the importance of impassionate design to construct a sustainable process in her work surroundings.
Ming joined Enviro Tec in 2005 after her architecture study in Australia, which earned her the Woods Bagot’s Best Graduation Prize. She and Chew, her father, consort to produce innovative mixes for architectural solutions in the company, nurturing it in a fresh way through sharing, community teamwork, and zest for life that she applies thoroughly on her design methods.
As a respected senior architect at Enviro Tec, Ardi nurtured his interest in balancing the ideas and realization between academic reasoning and practical situations within architecture. The distinctive approach, combined with his belief of fostering young graduates to build a firm foundation in local design, sums up to his involvement as an architecture lecturer in the University of Indonesia and publication of his writing on prominent academic journals.
He has accomplished projects in multiple scales with ET, in which two of them were particularly noteworthy—the Padma Hotel in Bandung (2006-2009) and Sahid Kuta Lifestyle Resort, Beachwalk in Bali (2009-2012). In both projects, the whole design team was directed by him, handling the full development from design, project administration, up to site supervision and co-ordination.
