Founder and Managing Partner

Dr. Joseph C. Lau, Founder and Managing Partner of Rocco Design Studio, established his own Hong Kong-based design and build practice in 2006. Rocco Design Studio, co-founded with Dr. Rocco Yim, JP, in Hong Kong in 2014, focuses on project management, interior design and contracting, and industrial and product design manufacturing. Joseph's design philosophy is that each project's architectural and interior design must be quintessentially unique and that each project should complement its location by seamlessly incorporating the overall architecture and interior design into the local landscape. The end result is to create a comfortable and sustainable space that transcends clients' requirements and expectations.

After receiving his Bachelor's Degree of Science in Architecture from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Joseph went on to Yale University, where he obtained graduate degrees in Master of Architecture and attended the Master of Business Administration Program. He possesses extensive experience with property development and project management, architectural and interior design, master planning, and business planning strategies.

Realizing how crucial public health is and its role in the development of society, Joseph also attained his Doctorate Degree in Public Health with a particular focus on Community and Family Medicine. He is currently an Associate Member of American Institute of Architects, an Associate Member of Hong Kong Institute of Architects, a Registered Architect in Macau, a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Committee of Nanjing from 2006 till 2022, the Vice President of Nanjing Fellow Association of Macau since 2013, the Executive Member of China Green Building Council since 2016, and currently the Honorary Chairman of Macau International Industrial Technology Development Association.
