OFFICE AUSTIN is an architecture and design practice based in Hong Kong. We experiment with form, materials, and tectonics in a search for the unexpected.

Recently completed works include the spatial design of an auction preview and an exhibition series for Para Site - one of Hong Kong’s leading contemporary art centres. Ongoing works include a selection of cultural projects for both private individual and non-profit clients.

Please reach out with any questions.
Portfolio available on request.
