HTCH: The collaborative platform for architecture

📖 Story

Ponk, an award-winning Thai architect with a special interest in house design and over 10 years of experience on 24 projects, evolved into an entrepreneur.

Frustrated by the collaboration challenges in architecture, she co-founded HTCH in September 2021, aiming to revolutionise how architects and teams collaborate and communicate in designing buildings, with a focus on making architecture more accessible.
