Founded by Canadian architect Nuno Da Silva Tang and French architect Maxime Decaudin, Atelier Nuno Architects is an architectural practice focused on creating imaginative everyday spaces crafted to the needs and ambition of every project.
We practice with intent to realise sensible yet provocative architecture, from interior spaces to buildings, inspiring thoughtful and imaginative encounters into our everyday lives.
In 2020, Atelier Nuno Architects won the World Architecture Community Awards 33rd Cycle in the Interior Design Category.
We believe in being fully engaged at every stage of a project, ensuring our visions are meticulously crafted and designs executed with excellence.
Our services include architectural design, interior design, project management, building regulation compliance, Building Department submissions and construction supervision.
Nuno Da Silva Tang
Nuno is a Canadian architect with international experience in luxury design. Coming from a multi-cultural background—born in Hong Kong and of Chinese-Portuguese descent—Nuno resided for 20 years in Canada and France. His career began at Louis Vuitton headquarters in Paris where he developed new architectural vocabularies for the brand. Returning to Hong Kong in 2012, he focused his expertise in luxury and eventually joined the renowned jewelry brand Graff Diamonds where he oversaw boutique design and constructions for China, Japan and US regions.
In 2017, Nuno launched his practice with Maxime Decaudin to create imaginative designs for our everyday spaces. In luxury design, Nuno focused on creating spaces that came together effortlessly. He strives to bring this same sensitivity into places where much of our time is spent. Nuno believes the spaces we encounter everyday often go overlooked and he seeks new design methods to yield sensible yet provocative spaces into our built environment.
Nuno holds a Bachelor of Architectural Studies from Carleton University and a Master of Architecture from McGill University, Canada.
Maxime Decaudin is a registered French architect and a Lecturer at the University of Hong Kong where he teaches Landscape Architecture since 2012. He holds a Master level degree from École Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris (ESA) and is currently pursuing a PhD in Art History at Sorbonne Université. Drawing from architecture, landscape theory and the history of sciences, his doctoral research aims to establish an environmental history of Hong Kong.
After a year-long fellowship at the Centre d’Étude Français sur la Chine contemporaine (CEFC) where he investigated the relationship between environmental conservation and identity formation in Hong Kong, he is currently an Emerging Curator at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA). Crossing disciplinary boundaries while engaging in both professional practice and education, Maxime’s research-based approach contributes to an innovative design practice.
