Sukaimi Surir

Associate Architect

Sukaimi started his architectural career in 1989. He worked the traditional way, starting with a firm grounding in the technicalities of architecture as a draughtsman. This fundamental grounding launched his journey for the next stage of his architectural career.

Developing a profound interest in architectural design, he left for Sydney in 1995 to further his studies. He believes that the realisation of any form of good architecture lies in creating spaces that evoke human senses through the understanding of the culture of place and its people, integrated with the use of appropriate materials and building technologies.
