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 build upon the vocabulary accumulated “then” while satisfying the needs and desires of “now.”

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 was named by Archdaily one of the Best Young Practices of 2020, and has won numerous competitions such as 1st prize in the inaugural Hong Kong Young Architects & Designers Competition. The office is also recognized by various international awards such as Perspective Magazine’s 40 Under 40 and the Architecture MasterPrize.
