Children have a drive to be independent and do things on their own. This is a healthy part of normal child development. As children grow, they are able to do more and more tasks. Kids use their 5 senses to discover the world and shape their personality. They absorb surrounding, which affects concentration and harmonious development.

The Project is the transformation of a 20 year old apartment in a historicist building. Since it´s located in the 6th floor, it has excellent views to a big green area to the west.

Situated in the famed resort area of Moganshan, the Gowin Golf Manor serves as a clubhouse for golfers, but also offers a small number of guest rooms to house overnight visitors. The rooms overlook the golf course and are lifted slightly, and held to one side of a central atrium while the public functions are grouped on the other side. The disparate functions of the clubhouse are distinguished by a unique set of materials including zinc, stone, and glass; together they create a multi-storey space pierced by angled ramps and sky bridges.
The architectural idea of the building is derived from an inside-out perspective, where the social qualities of the building are a dominant driver for the design: Often in tall buildings, the sense of community amongst the occupants is challenged by the fact that you hardly ever meet your neighbours, except coming and going via the lobby and at the lifts.
