Born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Maw Jia is an award-winning Malaysian Part-II architecture graduate with a Masters in Architecture degree from the Mackintosh School of Architecture. As an aspiring chartered architect, he believes in the integration of ideologies at an increasingly globalised society where a convergent world will shape the future of the built environment. He welcomes the concept of collaboration, and works closely together with clients and consultants to deliver high quality projects.

His worldview on architecture and urbanism is that it should leave a long-lasting, positive impact onto our surroundings. He views sustainability as an imperative thought process at every stage of a project, and carefully considers the societal, environmental, cultural and economical context of each project.
