Intellectual Property Office Headquarter in Beijing, China by KUAN Architects [UCD]

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: KUAN Architects [UCD]

This project is located at the Beijing TBD, in the northern district of the city, at the crossing of the North-South axis of the Badaling Expressway and the East-West axis of the TBD.

The site is divided into five parcels on both side of the TBD’s main landscape axis. The site is peculiar in its irregular quadrilateral shape, while all other blocks along the sides of the axis are rectangular grid. While the frequent approach would be balancing a regular site with complex architectural forms, we choose to use simple and concise shapes to balance the irregular site and use buildings to enclose a square plaza in the center. In this way, we also achieved the planning principle of reconciliating with the regularly gridded urban texture along the TBD’s East-West axis.

Original Life Market in Beijing, China by Latitude Studio S.L.

Friday, November 27th, 2015

Article source: Latitude Studio S.L.

How does our design can function as a catalyst to merge people‘s shopping experience into the pleasure of a healthy lifestyle?

An organic market is not simply an ordinary place to purchase food. It is a place where you go to seek out products that reflect the taste and feel of nature. With this in mind, our goal is to design every part of the market based on the principle of flexibility, adapting every decision to the nuanced demands of each kind of food and product. Thus, the experience of purchasing daily goods becomes more than a routine, it becomes an experience wherein the customer perceives the essence of the products sold in this kind of place.

W house in Beijing, China by SLOW Architects

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Article source: SLOW Architects

This is a studio and residence built from the renovation and expansion of a small single-story building. The original building is brick structure with slope roof. Now we take away the old roof and change it into three stories by making use of original brick walls and adding new light wooden structure walls. Since the surrounding environment is relatively messy, we put wood workshop which is not so private on the first floor, and lift the living functions on to the second floor from where the orchard and farmland on the west can be seen. The third floor consists two lofts and an outdoor terrace. The functions are organized as a series of platforms, from workshop on first floor, then dining room, living room, kitchen on second floor, finally to loft and terrace on third floor, spiraling up the two-story high atrium. The height differences between the platforms are determined in a way that some of the terraces are floors as well as big seats where people can sit leisurely to form a very casual atmosphere. This house is also an early test of light wood construction in China.

Office interior for transportation firm in Beijing, China by CAA

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Article source: CAA

August 1, 2015 – If you ever been in an office tower you’ve probably seen the grueling reality of people doing their jobs in poorly lit rooms. It makes for great satire, but more than that, it’s an attempt to allow people focus on their work at hand. It works, but not terribly effectively. CAA believes it found a better way –despite the conventional layout- to give people a place to produce in healthier place using details that endorse simplicity by design.
