Metagram is a contemporary architecture and interior design studio based in Hong Kong. We are a cross-sector design studio with successful projects in Retail, Commercial, F&B, and Residential.

REPAK Limited, our original name was founded in 2016. In 2018 as the business evolved our design arm took on the name "Metagram". The name represents our ethos - taking grand ideas, visions, and concepts, and making them reality. 

What we believe.

  • We believe that design should be value-adding.

  • We believe that in today's multi-disciplinary contexts, designers can act as bridges between disciplines.

  • We believe that designers are the "qualitative curators" of a project, ensuring the integrity of the idea.

  • We believe that each project is different and should be catered specifically to the end user.
