Home is a carrier of our lives and personality, recording the inner minds and feelings. Ink House is a residence of a calligrapher, implying the cultural complex of Chinese calligraphy and adhering to the spiritual realm of nourishing heart by art.

Designers create the space combined with human behavior model, paying special attention to the owner’s living habits and hobbies. The overall layout has a calm and concise tone which is set by ink painting with proper depth of color; the necessary decoration of clear and simple lines matches light and rounded interior design, achieving “extremes meet” effect of hardness and softness. When implemented in the specific design of details, the ink atmosphere is created through items as art painting, light gray natural stone floor, ink-dot-like natural stone wall and customized ink carpet, adding an artistic and human feelings to the rational space form. All in all, the overall design is bold and hard, while the details are fine and soft, showing the pure state of mind.

AHBE Landscape Architects, an esteemed Los Angeles-based firm known for its expertise in designing thoughtful, evocative landscapes that allow for contemplation and reflection, has created a healing environment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for patients, hospital staff, and visiting families and friends.

Unique solution transforms a concrete plaza into a restorative space in the city

The existing site consisted of a concrete plaza atop a multi-level garage. Using the metaphor of human skin, AHBE developed a multi-layered landscape solution that protects the existing building’s structural and mechanical integrity and accounts for an existing drainage system, emergency access, lighting and way finding, as well as extreme weather conditions. The solution – a unique, green roof-inspired system built onto the plaza’s existing structure – maximizes the impact of the landscape while minimizing construction and alterations to the existing building.

The landscape of the Veneto region, where the Cantina Valpolicella Negrar is located, is by nature an hybrid; a place where the boundaries between town and country are extremely fluid and controversial but highly rich in creative opportunities. The challenge that the rethinking of the WCC Negrar proposes, is the Re-establishment of a new relationship with this delicate Italian landscape.

Jingshan Boutique Hotel in Hangzhou, China by Continuation Studio

This is a project that started from engaging with the site. The site is located up on a mountain ridge, next to a reservoir’s dam. There was previously a two-story “San-Ho-Yuan” style dormitory block built back in the 1980s, with a courtyard surrounded by the concave form of the block. There stands an ancient pine in the centre serves as the heart of the courtyard, with its dense canopy covering half of the courtyard and part of the building. Meanwhile, the historical context of the site, to the north of the Jing-Shan Mountain that once gestated the Zen tea ceremony, has prepared it with a deep historical and cultural ambiance. As a result, to preserve the courtyard structure as well as the ancient pine, in order to generate its potential spatial spirit, has been established as our design proposition.
