About us

Integrated Design Associates Ltd (IDA) aims to provide a high calibre research, design and planning consultancy services for clients and projects of wide ranging levels of complexity and challenges in Hong Kong, China and Internationally. By combining original, innovative thinking and design excellence our goal is to add qualities and values to all the projects we undertake. Our philosophy is always clear and unequivocal – Our efforts must make a difference for all our clients, irrespective of size and scale of the project.

Our approach to design takes an integrated consideration of sustainability, environmentally as well as functionally, cost effectiveness, energy efficiency, spatial awareness, user well-being and architectural aesthetics.

We believe good design must address the appropriate use of technologies, engineering, humanity and ergonomics. We adopt a rational design process, which is often analytical and typically highly focused. Our in-depth technical knowledge, design expertise and understanding of the construction process have produced many successful projects which are extremely advanced in engineering, acutely budget driven and being carried out in very tight time constraints.

Research workshop

We believe a building’s success is measured by how well building sciences and engineering solutions are integrated with the architectural and spatial manipulation to express in unison the excitement which all great architecture exudes. New building sciences and technologies are constantly being conceived, developed and applied in modern buildings across the world.

Our Research Workshop is set up to collate, study, and explore aspects of new technologies for their potential applications in buildings commercially. For example many of our buildings incorporate energy-saving cooling and ventilation systems such as chilled ceiling, geothermal heat exchange, natural ventilation by solar chimney, the use of alternative / renewable energy sources for heating and cooling, high performance building material and bespoke products have been evaluated jointly with other specialists, research centres, universities etc to optimize their feasibility in being adopted for commercial use. These skills and technical knowledge we have acquired over the years are readily available, wherever applicable, to give all our clients’ projects the added value they are looking for.
