12.03.13 / Typhoon Haiyan Hits Home
Mark Anthony Lagunzad, Designer
I'd like to share my journey home to the Philippines during the week of November 18th to the 23rd. On November 17th I flew home to check on my family without any idea of where to find them or the condition of the area that they were staying.I hadn't heard from them since the the third day of Typhoon Haiyan (November 11) just after it had struck my hometown. They sent a text message saying they are all fine, after that it was six days before I heard from them again.
10.23.12 / The Manila Pen
Roger Gaspar, Associate Vice President
It's no surprise when a well-conceived architecture weathers the passage of time and through the course becomes weaved with the history of a place. Such is the case of the Peninsula Manila or as the locals fondly refer to as the Manila Pen. On a recent trip to the Philippines, our Singapore BD Manager, Kai Seah, and I had an opportunity to visit the hotel and pay homage to the very first hotel project that WATG designed in the country.
10.02.12 / Floating Villas in Amsterdam
Christiaan Van Goolen, Project Planner
During a recent visit to Holland, I went by Steyger Island in Amsterdam and snapped some pictures. The "Venice of the North" has another water-immersed residential community. This is an experimental project, with real houses, really floating – not the usual inhabited boats, and no houses on stilts. It's also experimental because the "lots" are actually water instead of land, and all these water-lots are privately owned and managed (unique for this municipality).
06.22.12 / Trans-Malaysia Express a Huge Success
Bernard Johnson, Project Designer
The idea of a charity bike ride across Malaysia started as a dream around Christmas 2011. Back in January, Trans-Malaysia Express founder Richard Thevenon met with Jean-Francois Torrelle who is one of the key figures in long distance cycling in Asia and Europe to refine the idea.

12.16.11 / The Kohler Southeast Asian Golf Challenge
I-Jin Chew, Project Manager
They say that Pete Wimberly was an "outdoors" person and hated air-conditioning. Hopefully he would have approved of our day out of the office enjoying the sun and tropical breezes at the Kohler Southeast Asian Golf Challenge held at the Tanah Merah Country Club representing WATG. On the 10th of November 2011, Robertino Limandibhratha, Nora Kaichung Pui and I-Jin Chew had the great pleasure of enjoying a day with colleagues in the design industry on one of the top courses in Singapore, courtesy of our hosts Kohler, who have richly combined their pursuits in hospitality, design and golf.
11.03.11 / One day in Shanghai
Ryan Langlois, Senior Interior Designer
One of the joys of our line of work is that we get to combine our passion for travel with our work. When those two interests overlap on the same trip, it's even better. Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Shanghai for the fist time for a project. Not only was this a client presentation but it was also an opportunity to work across offices with the Singapore interiors team and the interiors team in Irvine. Prior to our client presentation, Zia Hansen and I met up, booked a car for the day, and armed with a list of hotels, we set off to see what Shanghai has to offer. Alas, our driver did not speak English, so the concierge at hotel was kind enough to translate our 'wish list' so that the driver would know where to take us. This proved to be an adventure throughout the day, as the driver would take us to each location and it was not until we arrived that we knew which hotel we were visiting! We spent the day taking in about 10 hotels, looking at F+B outlets, taking in the vibe of the lobby, walking guest corridors, and when possible asking for room tours.
