Scion to a Singaporean empire that includes multiple hotels and real estate holdings under Pontiac Land, Kwee has taken that privilege and created his own niche within the behemoth organization. His point of departure was working as director of the group that looked after new business developments, from which he moved on to found Capella Singapore (amongst other projects within and beyond Singapore—think the Jean Nouvel-designed building in NYC 53W53). Kwee is notable for working with international "starchitects" as well as the most important designers and artists in the world, and is looking to expand the Capella concept with a Cappella in Niseko, Japan, and something soon in Bangkok.
