Following the well-deserved recognition in LUXlife’s Global Excellence program, we sat down with Another Design International’s Founder Mr Pal Pang to discuss the ethos, drive and future of the studio.

“I am looking to inspire people.” – Mr Pal Pang

Architecture is as much about form as about function. The best architects understand that they are artists that create living, livable spaces that can breathe life into the areas they occupy. Whether they work in residential, commercial, or governmental spaces, this truth remains at the core of their work. This equilibrium remains a constant, regardless of who or what the space is for. Pal Pang is an architect that has long celebrated this simple fact about the field he works in and has endeavored to challenge paradigms and push the boundaries on what can be achieved.

As Pang emphasizes, architecture is all about space. How it is used, how it could be used, how it interacts with the people that use it. “Designers and architects should always keep in mind the changing needs of the consumer. The changing needs of those that use a space. That’s the key to timeless design, as I see it.” This perspective has only been reinforced by the pandemic over the last couple of years, with greater importance placed on space design to accommodate for both current and potential future needs.


“People define spaces. With people now spending more time indoors as the result of the pandemic, we must rethink and adapt how we go about designing these spaces for alternative and extended use. There’s more of an emphasis on meetings needs across the board, whatever they might be,” Pang enthuses.

This ability to anticipate changes in the industry and set the pace for others has long distinguished Pang from his peers. Spearheaded by his distinctly minimalist, avant-garde style, Another Design International has secured a highly regarded reputation on the global landscape. Currently, the team at the studio are taking on an office space conversion in London, with the aim of eventually working across the Hong Kong and UK markets equally in the commercial space.

The commercial space has certainly been impacted by the pandemic as a result of a push of remote working and a monumental need for flexible working environments. “We can always do better for the end user, and with people working the in the co-user space there’s a greater need to work to all requirements of the space. Function is crucial, but form and art should always be kept in mind. Ultimately, we’ll be focusing on refining our offerings and approach over the next few years. We’ll be focus on delivering and exceeding expectations for the consumers that use our spaces.”

“Space is people. People is space. Art, music, lights… it all comes together to create space.”


About Another Design International

In 2001, Pal Pang founded what would become Another Design International. From the beginning Pang has driven for ‘change’, challenging paradigms, and ideas for what a space can be.

With this idea in mind, Pang worked on his first project with Madia in 2003. In this project he showcased a unique mindset for combining form and function into a cohesive whole, using LED lights and stainless steel to increase the visibility of the diamonds in the jewelry store.

In 2014, Pang moved to the United Kingdom where he founded his studio, Another England, where he continues to redefine what space can be.

Another Design International has quickly become one to watch in the architectural sphere and strives to continue its path of success. For all spaces, and all people, Another Design International focuses its efforts on weaving its magic into every project. With a passionate attitude and incredibly bright ideas, this company is reaching for the stars as it focuses on its upward trajectory through its creativity and excellent services. We look forward to seeing what it does now that it has won Best Interior & Architecture Studio — London.
