Vin Diesel wrecks my buildings



You know when you have reached a high point .. This happened to me when The  Etihad Towers, my team based in Kuala Lumpur developed the design and documented for DBI design Australia- were smashed up in a hollywood movie. In this case smashed in CGI in Fast & Furious 7 & it felt great … believe it or not. Seeing the architecture on the big screen (yes getting wrecked)  made all those late nights reaching those deadlines all worth it.  Thanks Vin for wrecking stuff on FF7 and the team effort of DBI design & the KL project team, of which I am very happy to be part of.

Update the Shiki Niseko resort has been completed and successfully operating for several seasons. I wish to thank the LOW YAT GROUP and Fairlane hospitality for allowing myself to assist in this process and congratulate the team.

Part of several peer reviews & inputs for a Luxury Ski Resort development, located in Niseko Japan. Concept was provided for leasehold tenants, as an exemplar, for a market place style bistro in the ground floor retail space.
