XRANGE is a multi-disciplinary architecture office founded in Taipei in 2003 by architect Grace Cheung and industrial designer and serial entrepreneur Royce YC Hong. Steered by the founders’ extensive international background and cultural fluency, XRANGE operates between the largest (+) and the smallest (-) of project scales, with works encompassing urban planning, architecture, landscape, environments, products and concepts.
XRANGE’s work is characterized by concise strategic thinking, bold forms and distinctive material attitude shaped by the exuberant urban contexts of Asia. Powered by constraints unique to every project, XRANGE’s wide range of architecture is systematic, emotional and absolutely unconventional. XRANGE’s design visions are candid, practical yet inimitable.
XRANGE was named by Wallpaper as one of “101 of the World’s Most Exciting New Architects” in 2007. XRANGE’s first building, the Ant Farm House, was the only project from Taiwan included in “The Phaidon’s Atlas of 21st Century World Architecture” in 2008.
