Gaming hardware maker Razer is getting a snazzy new office in Singapore in 2020.
The new 19,300 square metre headquarters is located at one-north – Singapore’s business park which houses many tech companies and startups – and will feature design elements by Razer designers and external architects.
Upon completion, the seven-storey structure will resemble a giant Razer gaming PC, particularly at night when strips of LED lighting in “signature Razer green” light up the facility, simulating a CPU in operation.
The company has dual-headquarters in Singapore and in San Francisco, California. It’s current Singapore office is at Chai Chee industrial estate.
Razer said its new headquarters at one-north will serve as the epicentre of the company’s Southeast Asia strategy.
The gaming brand aims to tap into the exponential growth of e-sports in the region.
The new headquarters also signifies Razer’s strong support for the Singapore government’s drive in developing technological innovation and talent pool.
Razer was founded in 2005 by Singaporean entrepreneur and NUS graduate Min-Liang Tan and Robert Krakoff after securing a huge investment from Singapore’s Temasek Holdings and a Hong Kong tycoon.
The company has released several award-winning hardware, from the high-performance gaming peripherals to the Blade gaming laptops. It recently entered the smartphone business with the acclaimed Razer Phone and launched its own e-wallet app Razer Pay.
The brand’s triple-headed snake trademark is one of the most recognised logos in the global esports communities.
