Meo Atelier is an international architecture firm founded in Weimar in 2007 and then relocated to Wellington in 2012. Being directed by Dr. Minh Nguyen, Meo Atelier has been transformed from a traditional into a multidiscipline design practice. In 2023, Meo Atelier opened its second office in Hanoi which is managed by a local and well-known architect, Do M. Cuong. Meo Atelier’s mission is to create high-end architectural and furniture design for both the Vietnamese and New Zealand markets.
Meo Atelier’s aim is to bring forward the development of a “Sensible Architecture”. Sensible relates to reality, to observation, to simplification, and mainly, to results. Meo Atelier does not only conceive architecture, but rather delivers architecture, seeking to carry forward the Modernist dream of prefabrication, of integrated design, of architectural democratization. A “Sensible Architecture” can also be sensitive, by means of applying traditional materials with a thorough sensorial care, stimulating the way people identify and engage with space, images and forms.
