Chronicling forty years of luxury architecture and design by Steve Leung, founder of one of Asia’s most successful design studios.

This major design monograph represents a comprehensive overview of 35 years of architectural, interior- and product-design work by Steve Leung, founder of Hong Kong-based Steve Leung Design Group (SLD). Spanning luxury residential developments and hotels to high-end restaurants and resorts, SLD’s work extends from Hong Kong to China and across Asia. This book – organized by themes that reflect periods in Leung’s life and work – captures the essence of one of Asia’s most successful and entrepreneurial practices. Introductory texts frame projects presented in each chapter, based on interviews with Steve and other influential creative and cultural figures, and are followed by illustrated project spreads that place each theme in context.
