About our practice:

VALECHE Studio is a Hong Kong-based design and research consultancy founded in 2013 to explore our interests in the landscapes of the city, of density, and of nature. Our services cross a range of scales and disciplines, from landscape architecture, to environmental planning and urban design. The studio has a sensitive but innovative approach that builds on our experience as builders and academics. We make things that endure; we build places that respect the people in them; we shape environments that are sensual, vibrant, and stimulating; we draw connections between nature and the city in rich and unexpected ways.
