Goy Architects is led by Goy Zhenru, who was educated as an architect in Singapore at the National University of Singapore and in Switzerland at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich. After working in both Switzerland and Singapore, she opened her own office in Singapore in 2015.
As an architect, Goy has created learning facilities (public and private), a farm-stay resort, residential, and, more recently, industrial buildings. As a designer, she has a keen interest in producing custom collections of furniture and decorative objects which serve to complement her interior and architectural works.
A supporter of vernacular architecture and craftsmanship, Goy adapts traditional forms to reflect a spirit of modernity. Her passion for relating architecture to its roots and history is a common theme inherent throughout her work.
