Since its launch in 1999, AB Concept has earned a reputation as the design firm of choice for the world’s leading hoteliers, luxury developers, and premium restaurant operators. Led by co-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 comprises of a leading team of interior designers supported by project architects; in-house production, graphics, products and FF&E teams from 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 artisanal quality and craftsmanship of each project. These essentials are evident in each of their works – from luxury to lifestyle brands, from projects in Asia to those in Europe, from architectural to interior to FF&E design.
AB Concept’s ever expanding client portfolio includes the Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Rosewood Hotels and Resorts, W Hotels, Waldorf Astoria and Shangri-La Hotels, while the company’s diverse projects span across Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Europe and beyond. In 2012, they released their first book, The Language of Luxe, to critical acclaim. Steering the company’s vision are designers Ed Ng and Terence Ngan. Imbuing each project with their distinct sense of style and unerring eye for detail, the duo has earned a reputation for design excellence and uncompromising quality. With Ed and Terence overseeing all of the design elements – from the façade 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.” Honoured at prestigious international awards, AB Concept has been recognised multiple times at the esteemed Interior Design Best of the Year, Annual Gold Key Awards, the Hospitality Design Awards and the International Hotel and Property Awards. Most recently, their project for the Shangri-la Hotel in Qufu took the 2014 Hospitality Design Award for Best Public Space, and their Shang Xi restaurant in the Four Seasons Pudong Shanghai took the Forbes Travel Guide accolade for Best Chinese Restaurant in China. Last but not least, their top-floor duplex at 39 Conduit Road was awarded the Best Design Apartment for Hong Kong for the International Property Awards 2014. AB Concept’s thoughtful designs and uncompromising quality have earned them a reputation for creating evocative visual statements and inspirational interiors.
