New Office Works (NOW) is an architecture and design studio devoted to the production of inventive spaces and objects. Based in Hong Kong, the office creates projects that simultaneously translates the desires of contemporary life and the underlying history and context of the city. From buildings and interiors to art installations and furniture, each project encompasses a curiosity toward detail and material. The design process is a rigorous search for surprising results through hands-on crafting and making of models and prototypes, and careful studies of textures and finishes. NOW received 1st prize in the inaugural Hong Kong Young Architects & Designers Competition, and has been recognized by various international awards such as Perspective Magazine’s 40 Under 40 and the Architecture MasterPrize. Recently completed projects include the West Kowloon Pavilion, Hong Kong Design Centre, and a retail pavilion for DFS Group in Vietnam.
