Job opening at MOD


Ministry of Design is looking for designers comfortable with the whole spectrum of design, ranging from architecture to interior design.


Join an internationally reputed Design Firm known for its "no-holds barred" approach to design – every project begins on a fresh slate, and we apply the same rigorous approach to "disturb, question and redefine".
Engage in a democratic studio-like atmosphere and work closely with Design Director Colin Seah to progress seamlessly between form, site, object and space.
Gain exposure to a variety of international projects in interior architecture and architecture as our work expands beyond China, Dubai and Singapore.
Widen your horizons and design thought as Ministry of Design continues its positioning as a multi-disciplinary design firm, crossing to realms like Graphic and Product Design.
Enjoy competitive remuneration packages reviewed at least twice a year, and a generous and secure Medical & Hospital Benefits Package.
Work in an environment that prizes creativity, efficiency and work-life balance.
Ministry of Design was awarded a string of prizes late 2006, one of which is the coveted President's Design Award, the Nation's highest award for design, for the New Majestic Hotel in Singapore. The hotel was also included on Conde Nast Travellers 2006 Hot List as a Top 60 Best New Hotels in the World. Ministry of Design was also awarded 5 times over by Interior Confederation of Singapore, including the top 'Colour My World' Award for Actually Boutique in Singapore.

Through our architectural & interior architectural explorations, MOD is positioned as an integrated spatial-design practice that consciously blurs prevalent intellectual & literal boundaries between interior space & exterior form. Acknowledging the limitations of these distinctions on our design process, MOD's explorations are created amidst a democratic studio-like atmosphere and progress seamlessly between form, site, object and space.

Design Director Colin Seah was also recently nominated for the Marcus Corporation Foundation Prize 2007 as an emerging architect with potential for greatness, 2006 winner was the internationally acclaimed Dutch firm MVRDV. For more details on our work, see
