Joyce Wang needs no introduction—the interior designer is behind some of the most recognisable projects from Hong Kong to London.


Joyce Wang’s name is nearly as recognisable as her ventures. The interior designer’s footprints are seen across Hong Kong and London—her eponymous studio is based out of both cities. Projects include Chinese fine-dining restaurant Mott 32 in Central—her “proudest project” to date—and penthouse suite at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.

In the past year, the biggest projects Wang and her team have been working on include the Rosewood San Francisco, with an opening date set for 2026. Closer to home, Wang unveiled a new pavilion, dubbed the Dockside Dairy, at Victoria Dockside on the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront in October. A reimagining of an ice cream kiosk, it is constructed with terrazzo, a construction material that was ubiquitous in pre-war Hong Kong and that can still sometimes be found today in older buildings. The structure’s octagonal shape is also inspired by Hong Kong architecture of yesteryear. “Terrazzo is a material we treasure dearly at our studio,” says Wang. “We’ve worked with it in our projects right from the very start, when I founded the studio in 2011.” The goal, she adds, is to give visitors “a sense of nostalgia.” The pavilion is playing host to a pop-up by Cookie DPT, serving ice cream cookie sandwiches with Hong Kong-inspired flavours through January 2022.

Although the pandemic has inevitably affected her work—“the inability to charette with the team in person” is a challenge—Wang has kept busy. In the year ahead, upcoming projects include the Magarigawa Club, a new luxury driving club for car enthusiasts in Japan; a townhouse at the Berkeley Hotel in London; and Mott 32 outposts in Cebu, Sydney and Dubai.
