Goy Zhenru was educated as an Architect in Singapore at the National University of Singapore and in Switzerland at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH)Zürich. After working in both Switzerland and Singapore, she opened her own office in Singapore in 2015.
As an architect, Goy has created learning facilities (public & private), farm-stay resort, residential, and, more recently, industrial building. As a designer, she has a keen interest in producing custom ranges of furniture and decorative objects which serve to complement the interior & architectural works.
A supporter of vernacular architecture & craftsmanship, Goy Zhenru adapts traditional forms to reflect a spirit of modernity. Her passion for relating architecture to its roots and history is a common theme inherent throughout her work.
In 2019, She was the finalist for Asia Architecture Emerging Architects by ARCASIA for her project Sukasantai farm stay. She presented her works in the Plenary Hall at Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC) alongside other shortlisted candidates from Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam, and Thailand.
