Launched in 2015, JJ Acuna / Bespoke Studio is a multi-disciplinary interiors and concept architecture practice based in Hong Kong and Manila.
Our considered and humanistic approach creates high-quality bespoke interiors and environments for hotels, restaurants, work spaces and homes.
We design for people who enjoy living well, seeing the world and experiencing different cultures.
JJ Acuna / Bespoke Studio was founded in 2015 by Creative Director, James JJ Acuna. A graduate of Cornell and Columbia University Architecture programmes, for more than a decade Acuna has worked on a wide range of lifestyle and workplace projects in Hong Kong, China, and the Asian region at large for a roster of select blue chip clients, such as Swire, Sun Hung Kai, and Hong Kong Land under well established Hong Kong-based Architecture firms, RLPHK, Woods Bagot, and LWK. With the establishment of his Hong Kong and Manila based studio, Acuna's aim is to help formulate bespoke design solutions for lifestyle-oriented clients via his lens and insight as not only a skilled designer, but as a thought leader on current global trends in relation to design, service, and operation.
Within the year, the studio has already achieved a "Silver Award" Delegation with the Hong Kong Design Awards for his work on the Elephant Grounds Restaurant on Star Street. In 2017, Acuna was awarded the "40 Under 40 2017" for Interior Design by Hong Kong's leading Design publication, Perspective Magazine. JJ Acuna / Bespoke Studio has also had the distinguished opportunity designing restaurants for two of "Asia's Best Female Chefs", Chef May Chow of Little Bao located in Bangkok’s Thonglor Area and Chef Vicky Lau of TATE Dining Room located in Hong Kong’s SOHO District. JJ Acuna / Bespoke Studio's work has been featured in various international publications like Wallpaper* Magazine, HYPEBEAST, High Snobiety, IndesignLive, and The Contemporist.
