I was introduced to Ren Hao after talking to other few IDs and I was happy to know how he understood the design I envisioned my place to be.It started off with the conceptualization of the space, along with sharing the mood board and color/tones/textures that would go well with design I had in mind. Ren Hao value-added by sharing what designs would accentuate each space and things that I should/should not go with. The material selection process was an enjoyable process as Ren Hao had choices already in mind that were reasonably priced and of good quality.
Once the renovation commenced, Ren Hao kept me updated with the progress as I was working and was not able to supervise the project. He shared options with me and gave suggestions so that it was within my budget. Though there were some hiccups and delays along the way, Ren Hao was quick to resolve the issues. The carpentry and laminates were of good quality and the island table turn out exactly what I had in mind.
Thank you to Ren Hao and his team for the awesome design!
We had met a few IDs from different firms and Alfred was our final choice. His proposed design appealed to our needs and we felt he was someone whom we can click with. We had a tight budget and he was willing to work within it instead of asking us to try to increase it.
Ren Hao was our project manager and he played an important role in ensuring our renovation was completed in time. He would always update us of the progress, assisted with the coordination work and resolve the issues that arise along the way.
We are thankful to have Alfred and Ren Hao with us for this renovation journey. They have been responsive and patient with our endless queries.
For workmanship wise, carpentry and tiling are satisfactory. One area of improvement I guess would be the painting. I feel it can be better.
We had chanced upon Ascend Design on Instagram and were really impressed by their design aesthetic in previous projects. Having spoken to a few IDs prior to deciding on Ascend, one thing that struck us as different from the other IDs we saw was how they were able to listen to our design requirements and provide suggestions to elevate the design of the house by also taking into account our daily lives and habits.
Throughout the renovation process, Jasper made the process fuss-free, coordinating the project and keeping us updated along the way.
He has a keen eye for design and colour matching & was able to provide design opinions as well as furniture suggestions that was in line with the look that we were going for. We felt rest assured leaving decisions about lighting and paint colours etc. in his hands! Jasper was also pleasant to work with and approachable during the whole process. He was also prompt in addressing our concerns and made necessary retifications as needed.
Overall, we would highly recommend Ascend Design to our friends and family & are really thankful to Jasper for making our dream home come true! We would definitely engage the services of Ascend again for our next house 🙂
Thanks Jasper and Yuxuan for turning our dream home into reality. After explaining to them what we had in mind in our first meeting, they are able to show us the mood board which was exactly what we wanted. They pay attention to details and are creative at the same time. We did not have to worry about the colours and materials.
For most home owners, I believe tiles selection is one of the most time consuming process due to the sheer number of tiles displayed at the showroom but for us the process is fuss free thanks to Jasper and Yuxuan’s spot on recommendation. We appreciate their hard work and we will definitely recommend them. Thanks Jasper and Yuxuan.
My husband and I chanced upon Ascend Design on Instagram and were immediately drawn to their aesthetics. We met one of their IDs Audrey who we felt truly understood what we wanted. Audrey introduced design concepts and came up with a mood board that was really everything we envisioned our dream house to be. So much so that we signed on with Ascend the very same day she gave us the quotation!
Throughout the renovation, Audrey was friendly, responsible and accountable. She was swift in rectifying issues that cropped up. We had a very tight timeline and Audrey managed to finish our renovation within the given time frame. Thank you Audrey for bringing our dream home to life!!
We already had a contractor for our store but he was messing up the plans for 2 months without going anywhere and we happened to be introduced to Ascend so we decided to make a switch after seeing their portfolio.
The entire journey has been nothing but great. Ascend helped us with our branding, design, marketing and even giving business ideas and advice! We would say that they are definitely more than what a normal ID is and we’ve received so much praise for the store interior and brand so far.
We’ve even expanded to our second store in less than 3 months and no points for guessing who is designing that as well! It’s going to open tmr and so far everything is tip top. Highly recommended for businesses that don’t want to be carrots.
A friend of ours recommended Ascend Design and we had such a great experience working with Ascend Design. We just moved in to a 1600 sqft studio office and wanted to make the place look aesthetic yet functional, thankfully we managed to achieve what we wanted. The project manager is very responsive and prompt with his replies every time we have any questions. The designer knows exactly what he’s doing and through his suggestions, the studio turned out even better than what we originally had in mind. Strongly recommend Ascend Design to those of you who need help doing any renovation works!
We engaged Ascend Designs to design and renovate our apartment at Lush Acres. We wanted to go for something simple, cosy and modern. Their designer Jasper was very friendly and open to ideas. Our living room was square, so Jasper helped us to plan our living space and layout so that it will look bigger and more airy. He also included a lot of wood elements, along with pops of vibrant colours, which was what we wanted. We will definitely engage Ascend Designs for our next home as not only their service is great, their quality is great as well. Jasper helped us to select furniture that are of good quality and within our Budget. The quality of their electrical works and other carpentry works were great too. Our house is still in excellent condition after more than 2 years. Will definitely recommend Ascend Design Studio!
The designer is very nice and has many ideas for improvement because my Wife and I have a lot of things to store but we still want the house to be nice and minimal. Very receptive to feedback, timely schedule and also quite affordable when I compared to my Sister in law renovation. The workmanship also very good, fhe woodwork quality is nice and we are very happy with the house. The designer and the company also spend a lot of time to discuss the needs of my children so they can have a room they want yet it is practical too. My family and I highly recommend Ascend Designs!
I first met Jasper and Agnes a year ago but some changes in plan did not allow for me to proceed with the home renovation. When I got my new resale condo with my husband I immediately contacted them again because I remembered their great service and their eye for detailing. It is like they took note of the things I said with much thoughts and it is well reflected in the design.
It was quite different from what the other IDs proposed and they focus quite abit on details which makes a lot of difference in my opinion.
The whole renovation process was a nightmare because it seems like there were issues popping up everywhere as it was an old place but jasper and Agnes were quite quick to solve them. I think mainly it is important to trust that your ID can give you a good job since I’m not an expert and the end result is just as what I wanted. Thank you Ascend!
Honest, friendly & Precise
First of all,i would like to thank this 2 guys for making all the dreams me & my wife imagine for a home…a reality.
As a first timer to own a property, definitely we have lots of imagination and dreams on how we would want our house to be.We were spoiled for choices as to which reno company we would want to have.
With that being said, we came across ‘Ascend Design’ in instagram page (do check their ig out) .We see the design from there..and we straight away give them a call.
Our Project Manager, Mr Myron Pang, came to assist us together with his assistant,Mr Ren Hao, to discuss and tonnes of planning together.
Both of them is contactable even till late night for a change of planning of the house.The best!!!
We went back and forth for finalising details for the projects & expenses..breaking down all the cost so that we really understand and not stones left unturn.They are that detail!
Cut the story short, schedule for reno is out together with the permit from hdb for reno works..and projects starts to kick in.
Both of them do regularly keep us update on the work that will be going on and even give us an image via whatsapp on what has been done. YES, im emphasise again,they are that detail and following the schedule closely.
What they have given us is not just a comfort in working together for our house, but a trust and
Confident that they can execute to our likings!
DEFINITELY WORTH EVERY SINGLE MONEY THAT IS COMING OUT FROM YOUR POCKET!!
A friend recommended Ascend Design to my family and I and we met about 6 IDs before – we find that Renhao is very meticulous and different from the way he asks not only about our requirements but also about our lifestyle. During the second meet up he was able to give us solid and interesting ideas based on our preferences. Our only concern was that he seem abit young but his enthusiasm won us over at the end and we signed with him. The entire process was quite enjoyable as he would suggest colours and textures pairing. Overall he was quite on the ball as well so only a little hiccup here and there due to their Contractors. Renhao managed to rectify does issues too. Would strongly recommend this firm.
When I first sat down with Jasper, I had already met with three other designers. I could tell right away that he was different. He took some time to get to know me, what I like to do, etc. before getting down to what I wanted. By the end of the session, I had signed him on because I liked him, and felt that I could work well with him. The understanding that he had acquired helped in every way. When it came to materials selection, he was very often spot-on with his suggestions. There was a mind meld moment at the tile showroom when we both excitedly pointed to the same tile design at the same time.
Jasper was assisted by Renhao, his very able ops manager, who kept me posted on the progress, and was very accommodating. They were able to keep close to the timeline, and I did not at any time feel stressed. I would say that the whole project went smoothly, and I am pleased with the result.
I was recommended by my friend to meet Agnes to discuss my home renovation. I think that my husband and I were quite impressed with the design that Agnes and Jasper gave and pricing is not bad so we went ahead with Ascend after meeting 5 IDs. Overall the entire process took 10 weeks and they actually are very good with details and colour pairing. Their recommendations turn out really well. Only comment we have is their tiling work is not fantastic at first but they manage to fix the problem in a short time. Our house turn out really beautiful and my relatives gave us thumbs up. Well done job would recommend to our friends and relatives too.
We fell in love with the raw, industrial designs featured in Ascend Design’s portfolio and decided to give them a shot. Ren Hao, our interior designer sat down with us got our aesthetic considerations and household needs. His floor plan of our house was bold and a re-imagination of the living space. We immediately fell in love with it!
I believe that Ren Hao went above and beyond his duties as an interior designer, so much so that perhaps “Renovation Coordinator” would be more accurate title to confer on him because he takes on so much more than just the design of the home.
Ren Hao and Jasper were able to accommodate to our many difficult requests which included storage space everywhere. As we had to hack the utility room to have a bigger kitchen, they made sure we were able to move all our junks from our old house and have them in places that were hidden. They also helped to troubleshoot a lot of issues we faced with the development. Ren Hao was also very hands-on with our renovation, checking on the contractors and providing updates regularly. They also were flexible in making last minute changes due to circumstances.
We feel that although they are younger than the other IDs that we met (4 other companies), they are experienced, authentic, creative and flexible. Strongly recommend to anyone who requires a more experienced and practical ID to solve their renovation woes!
We were in a rush to complete the renovation for our restaurant and the mall we were at was very strict in terms of design and paperwork so we had quite a time finding the right ID.
After meeting Jasper and Agnes we felt the assurance needed. They were able to grasp the concept we wanted and also to keep within the budget we had. Most importantly they were able to meet the timeline which was 4 weeks from a bare unit to a finished product. There were some hiccups here and there since it was a commercial project but the pair were more than helpful to assist us with the whole renovation.
All in all this is an ID firm that I would recommend to my peers and also engage when I open my third place.
My husband and I engaged Ascend Design after looking through 8 IDs because we really liked the design that Jasper gave us. We could tell that he was more of a designer than a sales person compared to others we met. The pricing isn’t the cheapest we got but it was value for money because we don’t want to save on our renovation and get something horrible… the whole process took about 9 weeks and jasper was meticulous in picking out the colours and materials for our house. Overall we really enjoyed the journey and we want to thank Ascend for our beautiful home
Selected Ascend Designs after meeting few IDs recommended by Qanvast,reason being the proposed design was close to what I have in mind plus some interesting elements added into it.
Myron Pang was the ID in charge of my project. He was professional,flexible with requests and able to throw up new ideas for discussion.
Myron is thorough with his planning and jobs allocation for the whole project management. He understands my tight timeline and the scale of work that he faced but he assured all could be completed.
Throughout the process,Myron gave timely updates and communication. He was also able to facilitate whatever requests and changes I have at any stage of the project.
Workmanship and service quality was of a high standard,he went beyond his job scope to make sure even the smallest details were taken care of. He was at site at times and even hands on with some of tasks.
In the end,the project was even completed ahead of schedule. All major works were nicely done with move in condition. Minor touchups were scheduled to finesse the project.
I would highly recommend Myron to anyone who needs a makeover to their place. Do not be fooled by his boyish looks,this guy is legit,he’s dope! Most important,he delivers.
(Although the final price exceeds my initial budget,It was money well spent and justified. No regrets.)
Myron was one of the most experienced ID ive met and he was very thoughtful as to what my family and i wanted. He was also very prompt to get back to me regarding my queries and solutions were never a problem. Myron was also helpful with the selection of colours for the designs as well as the details for the works that we would be doing. I think that personal experience is very important when it comes to something major like a renovation so im glad i have worked with ascend.
Minimalistic clean design proposal from Ren Hao first won me and my parents hearts over when we were unsure of whether to hire an ID.
Regular updates from him allowed us to stay on track with renovation progress. Minor carpentry issues encountered but eventually managed to get them resolved. Ren Hao was quick to respond to any queries and issues we had on hand and strived to attend to them to the best of his abilities.
Overall we could feel his passion in ensuring the place was done up both comfortable and to our liking. Would really like to thank him and greatly appreciate all his efforts put into doing up our new place.
Ascend Design was one of the IDs I found on Qanvast and I really like their designs so I contacted them for my house. The service I got from them was different from the other IDs as they were v personalised. They also didn’t delay my meetings like the other IDs cause maybe my project seem small (I only renovated my room). Overall they have been very on track with timeline and v good with the design I am definitely recommending them to my friends and family.
It was my third renovation and I went through 8 IDs before deciding on Ascend. I feel that the designer is young and Creative and have many ideas for me. Agnes seem new but he has a full team to support and solves all the problems we have. The price wise it is not the lowest quote we have but we feel that it is worth to pay abit more for good design and service and we are thankful that this renovation was smooth and well done.
This company is rather different from the ones I’ve met because they are very design based and also they take very good notes of our life style and planned everything according to our needs. Our relatives and friends have been wowing about our home ever since and we are so happy we found the right designer.
The price is not the cheapest but I suppose it’s value for money based on what we received and the service given.
The coordinator assigned to me was friendly and prompt in replies be it on WhatsApp or phone calls. Understood my queries and made sure I was attended to all my needs and requests. Workmanship was very commendable as all staff and workers acceded my requests. Made a few changes to the initial plan along the way but those were sorted out professionally by the designers as well. Willing to work with 3rd party suppliers on certain products and had a very much fuss free experience. Job was done within the time frame and everything went smoothly. Very commendable and definitely recommended.
We engaged Ascend Designs through a friend’s referral for our law firm. We are glad to say that our entire experience with them could not have gone any better. From the initial planning to implementation, we were extremely guided, informed and well within budget. Their work turned out to be as promised. Despite our various last minute changes, they always tried their best to accede to our requests.
We highly recommend engaging them if you wish for a pleasant experience.
I engaged Ascend Designs to renovate one of the bedrooms in the 3BR HDB I was due to move into. Having a poor experience with a different company, I was recommended this firm from a friend who had recently engaged them for a project as well.
Despite Ren Hao’s apparent youth, he handled my renovations well – consistently providing support and helpful insight. I appreciated the honesty in our conversations, particularly on one occasion, where I was quite adamant on these light pale tones on the wood used in my carpentry. He advised against it, but as I was insistent, he did his best to deliver. Another thing I would like to highlight would be Ren Hao’s timeliness and prompt responses to any query or request I made. His quick responses made the entire process smooth. I had never felt, at any point throughout the project, uninformed or unprepared. Whenever a small change was made, he always notified me as soon as he could. Definitely something I appreciated.
The final products of my renovations were well above my expectations, and of course, I was very pleased with it. The workmanship was of high quality, and everything fell into place as I had initially envisioned.
I am extremely satisfied in my experience with Ascend Designs, and would highly recommend the friendly Ren Hao to handle other renovations.
My company had undergone major renovation and we wanted a fresh designer to do up our office so we engaged Ascend Designs as recommended by one of the employee. The team was quite young which made me doubt their capability at first but when they talked me through the design process I was quite blown away. You can tell that Jasper is design trained because he has an eye for details while Myron’s knowledge for materials is quite vast. They even threw in a few fengshui tips as well! We had 3 ID firms quote us and Ascend’s quote was a lot lower than the rest. I personally believe they are new to commercial market that’s why they didn’t mark up high.
All in all the project was completed in the time given and they gave us what we wanted. Would recommend them to anyone who wishes to renovate their offices or homes. Get them if you want good quality work.
Our designer Myron had translated our design ideas to paper perfectly.
They had used visuals that helped set the planogram and gave us useful insight for what to expect.
We had left our complete trust to Ascend Designs and were absolutely pleased that they took what we had envisioned and executed it to our expectations.
We can definitely vouch for the quality and craftsmanship of their work.
Aside from the professionalism, we felt Myron was knowledgeable, warm and always willing to provide useful suggestions. He kept us updated throughout the process of the renovation which was very reassuring.
It truly was the best decision picking Ascend Designs because they help make our home feel like our own special place.
Ascend Designs helped me to renovate my first studio. The ID was friendly and patient with me and was able to understand the creative direction that I had in mind. He also took the initiative to do quality checks and call the workers back to ensure that the workmanship was good. It was hard to find someone who understood the concept behind a unique space like my studio. However, working with a young ID who was able to both understand the vision and execute it was such a pleasant experience for me and my team.
Decided to engage Ascend Design again after the satisfied job on another space. The designer was responsive with meetings and was able to quickly understand the demands for the space. Designer was meticulous on the details and was able to recommend solutions based on the requirements of the project. The young designer was able to recommend styles and colors that can transform the regular dull office space into a vibrant work space. Excellent workmanship and quality within the budget. Designer was very responsive and helpful with minor touch ups even after the renovation was completed.
We engaged the IDs via a personal contact before the lease was firmed up and they were great with advice on the location and negotiation terms since they have experience in it. They were involved in the planning of the layout and recommendations of design and materials used based on our mood board. As it was co owned by an Korean idol we had to Ensure that the space was event friendly as well and this was achieved while retaining the cafe look we envisioned. The quality of the workmanship is very good too, the cafe has been running for more than a year and the condition is still great.
Designer was able to execute the desired look and feel according to the proposed theme. Wide range of materials and colour options to choose from. Designer was able to communicate clearly on the final works. Renovation was hassle free and minor problems were easily solved. Contractors were friendly to deal with. Designer was able to meet the given budget and timeline. Excellent workmanship on carpentry. Designer may look young, but is a professional.
We had great experience with Jasper, friendly and efficient. He is very open with client’s idea and patiently advice the best usage of the space especially space in our room was very challenging. It became so spacious after the renovation. He has a great support team with good experience, the carpentry team was well delivered even there are last min issue they faced. My husband and I was very happy of the finished product.
