A carpark is not the easiest canvas upon which architects and designers can weave their creative magic. But for local practice, 4N Design Studio, rising to the challenge of revitalising a six-level carpark in an A-grade commercial building in Hong Kong made it all the more rewarding.

Pandemic-enforced bouts of isolation have not only driven a global surge in online streaming services, they have also triggered an awakening in consumer awareness of home entertainment systems. Discover how HKT Premier and Bang & Olufsen are making it easier for designers and consumers alike to create home theatres.
A dramatic lattice façade and an iconic mural from the early 1950s will be two of the more striking features of a planned expansion of the Macau Central Library, jointly designed by established Hong Kong practice Leigh and Orange, which has recently opened an office in the enclave as part of a strategic expansion in the Greater Bay Area.
The thing that impressed me was the youthful spirit. Young designers, young practitioners. You could feel the spirit and quality of their work. That’s encouraging.
Congratulations to the A&D Awards for celebrating excellence in architecture. I hope more professionals join in the coming years to make its impact even more far-reaching.
Thank you, A&D Awards. You’ve been an amazing support for our practice. Without you, I think we would not be where we are today.
The standard of entries was very high… I learnt a lot from them. I think they are an insight into Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.
My advice is if you don’t enter you will not know how good or bad you are. So enter and share your projects on a great platform of design.
I’ve seen some really good projects and outside the box concepts, so I can’t wait to see more interesting work next year.
I think the projects are of really high caliber, and the awards are an endorsement of the quality of design. I think everyone should support them.
