Yunchao Xu/Atelier Apeiron is an international team of creative architects and designers based in Shenzhen of China. The ancient Greek word “APEIRON” encapsulates our design philosophy, and also leads us to endless thinking, research and practice towards the origin of architecture. Opening boundaries, not restricted to definitions; Crossing disciplinary, not limited to typologies. We take each project as an adventure to some ignored wonderlands, where humanity is re-connected with nature in an immediate way. Each of our designs is derived from nature and integrated with humanity. Following the hidden laws behind phenomena, we use space as a medium to create poetic moments that reveal the original beauty of everything. With the platform supported by SZAD, we provide professional services spanning the fields of architecture design, urban design, interior design, product and graphic design.
