XRANGE is an architecture and design firm founded 2003 in Taipei by architect Grace Cheung and industrial designer and serial entrepreneur Royce YC Hong. XRANGE operates on multiple scales, incorporating master plans, architecture, landscape, products and concepts with a scope and diversity of projects that is one of a kind in Taiwan.
Steered by the founders’ extensive international background and cultural fluency, XRANGE’s work is characterized by concise strategic thinking, bold forms and distinctive material attitude shaped by the urban contexts of Asia. Inspired by constraints unique to every project, XRANGE’s architecture is systematic, tactile and absolutely unconventional. XRANGE‘s design visions are bold, grounded and inimitable.
