NOVUS PENETRALIS expresses your lifestyle.

At NOVUS PENETRALIS, we consider ourselves not just another interior architectural firm, but a dynamic, creative company with a mix of geometrical and eco-aware studio environment where innovative approaches to design are encouraged. Hence, our designers who love bringing in and playing with new and exciting ideas to interior design came up with this Latin name “NOVUS PENETRALIS”, which essentially means the diffusion of new ideas and designs.

Led by Tenniel Tsang, NOVUS PENETRALIS has offices in both Hong Kong and mainland China, which is staffed with talented architects, interior designers, graphic designers and renderers. All projects are therefore organized as a cross-border effort, with an assigned project manager and architect.


Born in Hong Kong and educated at the Rhode Island School of Design, Tenniel received his B.A. in Fine Arts in 1994, B.A. in Interior Architecture in 1995, and B.A. in Architecture in 1996. Back in Hong Kong, he served as an associate in the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and is a professional member of the Hong Kong Interior Design Association (HKIDA), full member of the Hong Kong Designers Association (HKDA) and graduate member of the Hong Kong Institute of Architects (HKIA).
