We started the ID search for our new place way back in 2019 before the pandemic. We had the luxury of time and shortlisted 6 ID firms that had the best online ratings.
We wanted a loft which added to the complexity of the quotations and designs. Finally, after numerous meeting with all 6 ID firms, we decided to engage the services of Irvin from Free Space Intent (FSI). While FSI’s quotation was certainly not the cheapest, Irvin impressed us with her earnest and professional attitude and was able to provide us with 3D drawings at the 2nd meeting when we’re still shortlisting ID firms.
Then COVID-19 happened and construction on the new place was delayed. We took advantage of the delay to review our designs over and over again, and each time Irvin was very patient in providing her advice and 3D drawings.
When we finally got TOP, Irvin jumped on our project immediately. She also took the extra mile to inspect our new place for defects which I am so grateful.
Because COVID-19 restrictions were still in force and manpower was scarce, Irvin had to constantly juggle the on-going works and was frequently on-site to supervise. The loft was the most complex part of our renovation where at least 5 different contractors were involved in different stages (metal structure, carpentry, electrical, glass, vinyl), and I was very impressed that Irvin was able to coordinate them all efficiently.
Our new place turned out great due to Irvin’s efforts. Its great to have an ID who is professional and efficient, and yet fastidious to a fault.
We do not regret engaging Irvin and would recommend her to all our friends.

We came to Free Space Intent at a friend’s recommendation. After looking through the company’s portfolio we decided to give u a try. We engaged the ID, Irvin’s service, and very fortunately, we clicked right away.
She is very meticulous to details, able to grasp many of the ideas and concepts I had in mind (I am quite particular about many things and quite OCD). She was able to suggest appropriate changes and alternatives which are still in line with my original concepts and overcome some of the limitations that my original concept had, such as space limitations or practicality.
Irvin is very knowledgeable and experienced, often able to propose innovative ideas which suited our needs and preferences. Throughout the conceptualization, she always respected our ideas and did not attempt to stray away from them based on her own opinions. We had multiple rounds of 3D rendering before finally finalizing the designs and she never had any complaints.
During the renovation phase, Irvin always made sure that I get constant updates on the progress and the communication between her and contractors. She gave advance notice on potential delays and also tried her best to over-deliver in terms of deadlines and quality. She even helped to manage the neighbours who came to our house to complain about the dust and noises due to renovation.
Despite delays due to COVID, the renovation was only delayed very slightly. The company managed to get manpower from other sources and made a tremendous effort to complete the project as early as possible.
Overall a great experience with the company and Irvin despite the service and products slightly on the premium side but you pay for what you get. The project management was pretty smooth and gave us peace of mind so that we could focus on our work and wedding planning. I would definitely recommend Irvin and FSI especially if you are not entirely sure about how to go about the whole renovation process.

Thoroughly enjoyed my entire experience with Irvin Mun from Free Space Intent as she is patiently guides us to design our first ever home. She is attentive to details and takes into account our lifestyle and propose recommendations accordingly. She is easy to work with and very responsive. The materials and workmanship are very good and we are happy to trust her advise. We are very satisfied with the outcome of our house! 🙂

I would like to give a 5 stars rating to Irvin Mun. She is very attentive to details and able to relate to what we need. Responsible, responsive and always take into consideration of what we want. The service and quality of carpentry are good! Besides those she quoted for, she goes out of the way to suggest furniture, lighting and colour scheme in order to achieve the overall effect we want. She will be there to advise every single thing relates to renovation and interior design and provide lots of practical ideas. She also put in effort and time after the work is done to do any rectification if required. Good experience from start to end!

Raymond and Jasmine were awesome. Raymond was extremely patient and helpful. He gave us plenty of design ideas and could very quickly pick up the vibe we want in our 1st home. We sat through hours discussing about our expectations and went through a few rounds of meetups in a bid to establish our ideal design. Raymond injected fun and laughter throughout these sessions. No matter how tired I was after a day of work, he always managed to make me feel excited about the design. Both Raymond and Jasmine are professional, responsible and reliable. Raymond is super creative and we really love the ideas he gave us. He listened to our needs and came up with the design that we fell in love with.
Highly recommendable, do not hesitate to engage fsi!
