arctangent office profile


background
Arctangent Architecture + Design originated in New York City at the beginning of 1994. The two founding partners Chia-Kai Yang and Keitaro Nei have since expanded their offices in both Taipei and New York respectively. Initially focusing on design intensive interior projects, the two offices are now concentrating on significant ground-up commissions on both sides of the world. Their projects have been featured in major publications in the Asia, US, and Europe.
