Since its launch in 1999, AB Concept has earned a reputation as the design firm of choice for the leading hoteliers, luxury developers, and premium restaurant operators. It is led by founders Ed Ng and Terence Ngan. AB Concept is widely regarded as one of the most innovative, integrated and internationally acclaimed design studios in Asia.
Based in Hong Kong with offices in Bangkok and Taipei. AB Concept has an international team comprising almost a dozen nationalities. Each of their designs tells a unique story through a spatial experience that is underpinned by the essentials of architectural precision in space planning and a bespoke sensibility that reflects the artisan quality and craftsmanship of each project. With Ed and Terence overseeing al at the design elements – from the facade and architectural form to the interior detailing – each of their projects maintains a consistent vision. The pair is involved in every stage of the process, weaving a unique story from start to finish and crafting a compelling narrative each time.
AB Concept’s design philosophy is clear. “Every project we create should be a legacy for our clients. We are selective and only commit to projects that we feel passionate about, those that evoke an emotional response or spark our collective imaginations. It starts with an overarching theme that serves as the foundation. From this basis grows a story and design concept, evolving into a strong narrative.
