Singapore, 2 August 2021 – CBRE today announced it has acquired commercial design firm Wolf Studio
Wolf Studio serves clients throughout the Singapore area/Southeast Asia region and offers a full range of real estate design and related services, including design consultancy, design-build, feasibility studies and visual content planning.
The Directors of Wolf Studio, Chrisandra Heng, Brandon Liu, Micah Valenzuela and Mervin Geronimo, will take on senior leadership roles within the CBRE Singapore Design team, led by Sebastian Mann, who leads the CBRE design business for the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
“The acquisition of this talented team marks an exciting milestone for the development of our regional design business, and the creation of our APAC hub of design,” said Mr. Mann. “The experience and creative horsepower of the Wolf team, combined with our broad and deep real estate services platform, will enable us to further assist our clients in their strategic decision making.”
Brandon Liu, Director, Wolf Studio, said: “We are excited to join CBRE and offer our design strength to deliver comprehensive, fully integrated commercial real estate solutions. Wolf Studio has quickly grown to become a leading design firm in Singapore and CBRE’s platform will accelerate our reach and growth across the region in supporting our clients with our design solutions. We look forward to working across the CBRE platform to do great things together.”
Wolf Studio’s work can be seen throughout Singapore and the Southeast Asia region, and the team is responsible for some of the most iconic commercial design projects in Singapore. Its broad design portfolio and range of global clientele showcase the strength of their team's commitment to great design and being at the forefront of shaping the workplace design industry.
Chrisandra Heng, Director, Wolf Studio, said: “Our philosophy has always been simple and clear. Every project is the opportunity to do our part, transforming one office at a time into places that bring joy to people and strategically help organisations grow through great design. Looking beautiful alone is not enough, our approach is centered around deep engagements with our clients to truly understand their business, culture and people. Now we have an opportunity to do this on a much bigger stage with CBRE.”
CBRE Design is part of the APAC Advisory Project Management business line, and the Wolf team will collaborate closely with our Workplace Strategy and Office Services teams.
Moray Armstrong, Managing Director, Singapore Advisory Services, CBRE, said, “In the real estate Advisory and Transaction world, clients are increasingly seeking alignment across services. CBRE Singapore and Southeast Asia leasing and occupier teams are constantly striving to deliver innovative solutions and optimal execution of assignments, backed by the differentiated insight afforded by the diversified CBRE platform."
“The CBRE APAC design hub will propel our business further forward on this journey. With greatly enhanced in-house design and technical resources, our brokers and advisors can now bring even richer insight into issues such as space utilisation, optimal floorplates, test-fit layouts and 3D virtualisation of premises options. This will be hugely impactful to our investor and occupier clients alike.”
Founded in 2017, Wolf Studio has 25 employees in its Singapore office, and the firm’s expertise spans all areas of commercial design, including design consultancy, design-build, feasibility studies and visual content planning.
