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.

COFCO Ruifu Residence in Beijing, China by W. Architectural Design Co., Ltd.

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

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.
