H.O.D is HOD Design Consultancy and Hoe Design Architect. HOD Design Consultancy was founded by Ar. Eric Wong Weng Hoe in 2017 to provide interior and furniture design services, and market H.O.D brand furniture and products. H.O.D is a sister company of Hoe Design Architect, an architect’s firm specializing in residential, hotel and resort project established by Ar. Eric Wong in 2013.
The mantra of H.O.D is providing quality architecture, furniture products and interior design that are connected to people. We aspire to evoke awareness of cultural roots, whereby the values are extracted, distilled and imbued into our designs, and reinterpreted with contemporary design vocabulary. Our works are crafted through contextually sensitive designs that people are emotionally attached to. We emphasize space as the main generator of a building’s design – Form follows Space.
