    Company Profile

    JET at its core, believes in a transfer of cross disciplinary technologies. Our designs seek to improve and add value to our contemporary environment. Environmentally sustainable design is an integral part of our design process.

    Our design is often inspired by nature, both in terms of pattern and ecology. Natural elements such as the sun, the wind, the earth and the oceans contain universal beauty. We strive to infuse our designs with nature.

    At the same time, we embrace technology and are invigorated by the sense of progression it brings. We have a keen interest in the automation of architectural fabrication. Available to us are design tools from the aerospace, nautical and automotive industries.

    We like to explore the ethos of the future in different concepts of time, retro-futuristic in a sense. Our inspiration ranges from the pictorial representation of metaphysical time and space that exists in the modern futurist paintings and sculptors, to the fantastic world of the Jetsons, the animated cartoon.

    In all our designs we ask fundamental questions and provide precise solutions with a high level of clarity and appropriateness.

    The principals of JET have over 50 combined years of professional experience. They have carried out projects ranging from master-planning to interior in a wide range of sizes, types, and locations.

    JET has collaborated with sustainability leaders such as Turenscape and Transsolar.

    Recently, JET in collaboration with VPANG and Lisa Cheung have won the West Kowloon Cultural District International Competition for the Arts Pavilion.
