NUNO DA SILVA TANG

Founder

  

A career that began at Louis Vuitton

  

Born in Hong Kong, with a multicultural Chinese and Portuguese background, Nuno moved at the age of six to Montreal, where he developed a passion for design and studied architecture at McGill University. He joined Louis Vuitton in Paris upon completing his studies and created new designs for the brand’s boutiques.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Having gained expertise in luxury design, Nuno returned to Hong Kong to connect with his roots and practice architecture in a new context. He worked at several international architecture firms and then joined Graff Diamonds to oversee new store designs and constructions in China, Japan, and the United States.

In 2017, Nuno launched his practice with Maxime Decaudin, a French architect and an educator at the University of Hong Kong, and developed an approach to providing thoughtful and inventive designs for a wide range of spaces. He brings sensitivity to spaces that often go overlooked and applies a rigour and a sophistication to projects across scales. He is dedicated to defining sensible and inventive attitudes for the way we live, work, and learn. 

In 2020, his design for HKU's Li Ka Shing Medical School Lobby won the World Architecture Award and received both local and international attention.

Nuno is an Associate of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
