The Dining Womb was created for the 2010 DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting Aids) fundraiser whose simple brief was to create tables for dining, which were viewed and used by patrons during the event. Typically dominated by interior designers who create decorative and theatrical table tops, we wanted to get beyond the superfluous, and focus on the critical elements necessary for a great dining experience; namely intimacy, intrigue and sensuality. As architects, we wanted to create something that was rigorous and functional, with a strong conceptual, structured form. Our brief required us to seat twenty individuals.

BLUE ROOM is an installation proposal that translates and complement the brand’s juxtaposition of soft silhouette and architectural lines in their work into the scale of the retail environment. We began with an idea about the insertion of a translucent lining that would contrast with the rectilinear envelope of the existing space and act as an atmospheric veil to separate and define areas for the display of merchandise.

SuperStadium is a proposal for an Olympic complex for Harbin’s bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics that seeks to integrate the multitude of Olympic arenas and villages into one continuous entity, allowing for a seamless transition between programs and events. With the economic burdens of hosting the Olympic games a key issue in the local and global economy, the proposal attempts to inject the current model of sporting arenas with a social and cultural initiative. Thus, the building itself becomes a series of typological layers, with the ground floor programmed as a cultural landscape with libraries, museums, convention halls, and screening rooms.

This gut-renovated apartment is meant to function as an escape from the clents’ ordinary life that is filled with collections and objects. They are an empty-nest couple, with a big home in the suburbs and a self-declared ‘tchatchki‘ addiction. A renovation of the existing 2,500sf apartment clears out the center space to visually link the dining room and living room together. The palette of the apartment is kept simple with white walls and dark floors in order to retain a purity of space.
