Greenhilli Pte Ltd

In 2005, directors Nigel Greenhill and Li Sau Kei founded GreenhilLi in Singapore. Their motivation was a desire for independence and the ability to pursue architectural visions rooted in strong values and principles.

The creation of the GreenhilLi studio was influenced by the team’s extensive international experience, gained from nearly two decades of projects across Europe, Asia, Australia, and Singapore.

GreenhilLi’s approach to architecture is a thoughtful and imaginative process, driven by a deep commitment to design excellence. This unique and intentional expression of architecture has been cultivated and refined within the studio.

Today, GreenhilLi is recognized with multiple awards and has completed projects in Singapore, Australia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Their portfolio includes public infrastructure and transit stations, as well as commercial, cultural, institutional, residential, religious, and heritage buildings.

GreenhilLi is a licensed, registered architectural firm in Singapore and is listed on the BCA Public Sector Panel of Consultants.
