Jim – Design Director & Interior Designer

Our Story

How Did It All Start?

It all started when Jim Lim, the Founder and Design Director of Atelier Design Studio, took an interest in interior design and carpentry. Jim is an engineer by training, having graduated with a Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Northumbria at Newcastle. Following his graduation, Jim worked as an engineer in various companies from 2002 to 2010, starting with the position of a junior engineer and rising through the ranks.

The change in Jim’s career came when he joined a small interior design firm as an interior design assistant. In 2013, the entrepreneurial bug bit him and he entered into a partnership. Two years later, it was time for Jim to set up his own company and Atelier Design Studio was born. Since 2015, Atelier has provided quality interior design and renovation services to homeowners. Atelier also possesses special expertise in carpentry, which results in the company being able to provide customised storage solutions for its customers.

Jim’s training as an engineer has certainly proved advantageous in his business. As a result of his exposure to the technical side of things, Jim possesses a keen eye for details. He personally oversees the important technical aspects of the design process, such as electrical planning and shelf loading calculations. Satisfied homeowners appreciate Jim’s meticulous attention to detail and his expertise in such areas as space management and mood creation.

Today, Atelier Design Studio has moved beyond interior design and renovation. Jim and his team now also provide elegant fittings that complement homeowners’ kitchens, including such items as retractable dish racks and soft-closing drawers. Atelier is also proud to carry its own door hinges, which come under the “Honest” brand.

OUR TEAM

Jim Lim


Founder

With his Process Engineer background and eye for detail, Jim is able to understand and articulate clients’ needs. While some homeowners already have a good idea of what they need, some don’t. Through a series of questions, Jim is able to identify their needs and recommend solutions accordingly.

Being someone who places customers’ interests before his own, Jim always endeavours to be responsive and take the initiative to inform owners about things they don’t already know. Jim is a good listener and does not hesitate to only meet but even manage clients’ expectations. Owing to his experience and contacts in the industry, Jim is able to source for the most good-for-value items so as to be able to help clients achieve cost savings while maintaining quality. This is in line with Jim’s personal design principle: To achieve practical solutions and to achieve cost savings. Where possible, Jim will suggest the redeployment of certain items in other areas of the apartment.

This personal, customer-centric approach is not limited to Jim only. Jim has actively ingrained his values into the company’s culture. This allows Atelier Design Studio to work effectively with not just its clients but its partners and subcontractors. Being a small company, Atelier Design Studio is agile and flexible and is able to accommodation changes from its clients.

Atelier Design Studio aims to provide a cosy, liveable space for homeowners.
