An Unforgettable View
As Wang Changling–a renowned poet of the Tang Dynasty– illustrated in his work Shige (Chinese for Poetical Patterns), the art of writing a poem involves three individual layers: landscape description as the physical layer; inception of emotions from the landscape as the emotional layer; and the expression of one’s own emotions as the emphatic layer. The integration of these three layers into the shaping of space is a refined interpretation that suits perfectly the tier-by-tier progressive atmosphere created for the COFCO Ruifu Residence.

If you live in a place where your children feel safe on their way home thanks to soldiers and policemen standing guard your home around the clock and all the year round; thus a thief dare not show up; you are gently reminded up even when your car is scratched by somebody; but if you suspect that they can watch not only your children’s safety, thefts, and vandals but also, maybe… maybe your garden and even your living room through high resolution binoculars as if they are spying on neighboring movements but actually your home.

Competition winning scheme for Plot 15 of the MOLEWA residential design competition in Ruichang, Jianxi Provence of China.
Residential design in China faces multitudes of restrictive design issues: One, facing heavy regulations imposed by local planning bureaus residential design often results in very strict interpretations of massing and building separations. Second, a developer-led and market driven standard of apartment layout creates a homogeneous and monotonous building typology that litters the urban landscape offering very little choice to potential buyer / inhabitants. Thirdly, out-of-date local customs remains a design barrier that is difficult to overcome by users accustomed to certain arrangements of functional layout that is a reflection of the developer-led model, fueling the perpetual circle of the same type of residential layouts.

Expansion of Commercial District and Destiny of Residential Area
In between Apgujeong-dong where the middle class gathered and high tech business town Samsung-dong with Teheran-ro as a center, Cheongdam-dong remained in relatively quiet residential area but alleys are gradually changing in the aftermath of surrounding commercial district. Other than having great market value of apartment and land and advantage of school district in this town, it still has good residential environment, but despite of thorough city planning like district units plan, it has possibility of threatening the residents as target of unwanted commercial district.

This residence is located in a mountain slope surrounded by trees in a forest near Mexico City. It was of utmost importance not to tear down any trees in such a privileged site. This translated in a forced floor plan design, always attempting to avoid disturbing the trees. Because of site’s sloping terrain, access is through the top level through a welcoming foyer. This foyer is located within a connecting structure that unites the two main buildings, the first one being the main building that houses all public rooms such as dining room living room, library room and bedrooms, all enjoying views of the garden; and a second supporting structure aligned with the street that houses service areas such as laundry room, storage and service areas.

Nishi-ku, Osaka-shi A private house of the solitary life built near the Kyocera dome.
Board sticking 1 year passes after completion, and which is an outer wall and board sticking of interior plywood, it’s when it’s being matched.
When I’d like to make a fascinating house because I build hard, you speak and housing has started.

A home as casual and easy going as its residents. Low maintenance, no frills materials were used to create a cost effective yet compelling extension to the rear of a family home in Newport. The middle of the home had long suffered from substandard foundations, this extension replaced this middle section with a new kitchen, living, dining, bathroom and laundry. In addition, existing spaces were extended and converted into a second living area, and two new bedrooms. The brief was to create something low key, beachy, contemporary but still respect the character and materiality of the weatherboard cottage at the front of the property. Room to kick a ball, connection to the outdoors and ease of moving surfboards and sporting equipment from the rear of the house to the car in the front was top of mind for these clients.
