Matthew Lim Associates

We disagree with the statement that FUNCTIONS are more important than FORMS. To us, both are equally important. A nice and fitting design can encourage the users to understand and experience the space comfortably, thus improving the function aspect.

A functional design and good environment can make the world a better place for everyone. The experience of the surrounding is vital in shaping and improving the lifestyle of the community, or mayhaps even giving them a transboundary perspective. That is what we truly believe in. After all, we are not just designing interior, we are designing intelligence.

A compelling design is imperative in making your patrons and you to fully immerse in the experience of the environment, be it at home or retail shop. Interior design can change the experience and leaving you a lasting impression. Interior architecture relates closely with branding in changing lifestyle. We use interior design & branding to help you develop your future business plan with our LIFESTYLE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. The LD program is set to change the behaviour of your patrons, leaving them with satisfaction, a renew perspective and permanent memory imprint of your establishment.


Together with my extraordinary team, we will definitely change the landscape of our country, and even the world.


We see ourselves turning each different projects into unique landmarks, crafting something that will endure the test of time, both functionality and aesthetic wise
