Danish born and raised Ms. Fong-Chan Zeuthen, heads up the KAZE team, having started the award-winning design studio eight years ago. Fong-Chan completed her Masters in Architecture at the Academy of Architecture in Denmark in 2002, and after qualifying; she wanted to explore the world of architecture outside her native Denmark. It wasn’t long before the roar of the Asian tiger caught her attention and she headed east.

In the intervening decade, Fong-Chan has witnessed extraordinary change in Vietnam, and nowhere is this more apparent than in Ho Chi Minh City. In 2010 Fong-Chan spotted an opportunity for a boutique interior design studio that combined her Danish design heritage with the experience she’d garnered while living in Vietnam. The result was KAZE, which nearly eight years on, has offices in Saigon, Hong Kong and Denmark.
