Alexander Wong Architects Limited is an award-winning, avant-garde architectural firm originating from Hong Kong. Back in 2001, Mr. Wong started his own firm and created this brand with the dream in innovative designing and with the recognition of Hong Kong Cinema legend Jackie Chan, Esprit ex-Chairman Michael Ying, and China-based luxury boat manufacturer Kingship Marine’s Chairman Roger Liang. Since then, the company has evolved into a dynamic multi-disciplinary powerhouse consisting of visionary professionals creating fresh, young, and cutting edge designs for architecture.


Dare to Be Different

Presenting and combining the best of what Asia-Pacific has to offer in superior design, attention to details, professional diligence, business acumen and cost effective management, Alexander Wong Architects Limited propels not just architecture but also interiors, urban planning, branding, and real estate development to a whole new level. Designing futuristic cinemas, lifestyle supermarkets, luxury celebrity homes, thematic shopping malls, and tomorrow’s bathrooms are their specialties just to name a few.

The originality is evident in the work of Alexander Wong Architects Limited alongside with the technical precision, creativity, and uniqueness. Unlike any other firms currently within the industry, their designs are ultra-bold and daring. Mr. Wong believes in the power of narrative spatial design, which is having many layers of meaning embedded in the works rather than creating something simply functional or aesthetically pleasing. That is why his company “does innovation with sensuality and practicality”, which is featured on the latest “Archiphantasy”, a publication by Mr. Wong on Architecture and Interior Design. Such a style has been proven to be well recognized by many awards throughout the years, namely the Asia Pacific Property Awards, the International Property Awards, and etc.


Taking Advantage of the Challenges

The company’s biggest secret to success is seeing challenges as possibilities and sometimes opportunities. “At any rate, you always learn something when the going gets rough but you must have an open-mind for it,” Mr Wong says. As the company grows, it has never seized to strive for real innovation, creation of new ideas, and exploration of virgin territories. He further elaborated by quoting Shonda Rhimes, the successful American TV Producer of “How To Get Away With Murder”: “I am not lucky. You know what I am? I am smart, I am talented, I take advantage of the opportunities that come my way and I work really, really hard. Don’t call me lucky. Call me a badass.”

“Looking Beyond the Future”

Speaking of the industry development prospects, it is said that the future is finally looking up with the massive “Belt & Road” initiative. The market is expanding in the midst of the Pearl River Delta (or Bay Area) Revolution with Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Macau, Zhuhai, HeSng Qin, and Zhong Shan all gradually forming one of the biggest economic hub in the world, which is potentially well over 1 trillion US Dollars in GDP and becoming the tenth largest economy in the world. Looking ahead to the change in the future, Alexander Wong Architects Limited has started a satellite office in Shenzhen growing with international designers from all over the world. The company is said to be getting a lot more interesting commissions from many different clients. Getting the Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Award 2017 is a recognition by fellow professional business peers, said Mr. Wong. It is described as both a great honor and a great encouragement to all of the people within the firm and beyond. According to the founder, “this is a confirmation of us providing innovation, excitement and glamour without sacrificing functional fulfillments through our unique design philosophy. We are delighted to have our creativity fully recognized and will continue to raise the bar with all our future design endeavors”.

The meaning of “Success” is very different for everyone. Usually Money, Fame and Power. But for us, first and foremost just Pure Survival, then Growth followed by Increase in Market Share (with hopefully some Real Innovations along the way). Winning a few more awards wouldn’t harm of course be but not our ultimate goal. Real Innovations, Creating New Ideas, Exploring Virgin Territories and Learning more about our Universe! We are bang in the middle of the Pearl River Delta (or Bay Area) Revolution with Hong Kong / Shenzhen / Macau / Zhuhai / Heng Qin / Zhong Shan all gradually forming one of the biggest economic hub in the world. With potentially well over 1 Trillion US Dollars in GDP and becoming the tenth largest economy in the world. How could we complain about our industry development prospects? With the massive “Belt & Road” initiative, our future is finally looking up.
