A redesign of the 120 suites at The Landmark, Mandarin Oriental in Central. The goal was to design bedrooms with an understated but sophisticated luxury where guests could find sanctuary from the city. The palette of soft materials, neutral colours and subtle references to nature, make for rooms that feel light and contemporary – more special than domestic bedrooms, and of course extremely comfortable.




“We used craft techniques and played with natural patterns to add a layer of tactility, which helps make guests feel at home. The bed cocoons guests for an added layer of privacy.”

Interior Design: JOYCE WANG STUDIO

An interior concept for a high-end show apartment in Hong Kong’s Mid-levels. The intended client would be a global traveler, placing great value on the importance of home. We built a narrative around the design that combined beautiful materials, furniture, objects and art from around the world – the collection of an owner with good taste whose home tells the story of their life.


“The more specific a space is to a particular person, story or history, the more engaging I find it.”

    A neighbourhood restaurant bringing to life the character and food culture of chef Nathan Green. It has a relaxed industrial feel that buzzes by day and becomes more hallowed by night. Charred cedar cladding references the grill that Nathan cooks on and copper details are inspired by his love of hot rods and vintage car restoration.

    Where do you call home today?
    Hong Kong and London – to be honest wherever my children and husband are.

    Where have you lived in the past?
    I’m a nomad. I was born in Hawaii, went to school in the UK, then college in Boston, then spent a year in the Netherlands at Delft, then to London to work for Foster and study at the Royal College of Art, then LA, then in Hong Kong where I started the studio in 2011.

    Where did you learn about design?
    Apart from my studies, travelling with my parents when young. My mum and I would travel with my dad while he worked. I saw the world and it opened my eyes to the power and possibility of design across culture and time.

    How do you describe what you do to people outside the industry?
    I design spaces that make people feel great. I want people to feel confident, to lose themselves and to have fun.

    What spaces have moved you?
    The Gund Hall at Harvard Graduate School of Design humbled me. Noguchi’s playground made me realise design could be joyful. Adolf Loos’ Knize shop in Vienna showed me design could take people on a journey.

    What values do you promote in your studio culture?
    Open, honesty, inclusivity, work hard, play hard. Roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. Teamwork is everything.

    What are your passions?
    Sci-Fi film and novels. Family comfort food. Southern Cuisine. I love fish underwater, and scuba diving. But also at the other end of the world I love snowboarding.

    What are your strengths?
    I am persistent. I believe if there’s a will there’s a way. If you work hard enough you can make anything come true. I don’t get stressed. Every experience is a learning experience, is my motto.

    What motivates you?
    People who say no. People who are passionate about what they do. People who have the courage to change. People.

    I will die happy if I….
    …can make my children realise that people are everything.
