Kai Tak Primary School in Hong Kong by ArchSD

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

Article source: ArchSD

A school is a community: a micro-society, a mini city within a city. It is an oasis yet has a direct relationship with the city at large. Our idea is simple; the spatial concept for the Kai Tak Primary School is to bring the students and teachers together with the playground and other spaces and activities, to encourage interactions. Breaking away from the typical densely built 8-storey school building in Hong Kong with the ball court on the ground, this school adopts a low-rise 4-storey design, with the basketball court raised on the first floor, sited in the middle of the school campus, creating a focus, pulling together spaces and activities.

Bean Buro’s design for UBER’s new Hong Kong office takes inspiration from Gottfried Semper’s writings on vessels, where he described the notion of form and function acting as a structured whole, with individual parts fulfilling their own function while cooperating with others to achieve an overall aim and effect.

Residential – Disappearing Corridor in Hong Kong, China by Bean Buro

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Article source: Bean Buro 

Bean Buro has designed a 1,485sqft (138sqm) apartment for a young family of four in the south side of Hong Kong Island. Unchanged since the early 1990’s, the apartment featured closed off rooms accessed by a long corridor, and large windows looking over the ocean.

Retreating from Hong Kong’s busy lifestyle, the apartment’s entrance is a semi-enclosed foyer which marks the threshold between inside and outside.

Designed with a comfortable seat, playful hooks and concealed shoes and coat cabinet, it allows for a moment of pause and appreciation of the home.

Curio Stair of Encounters – Bloomberg Hong Kong Office in China by Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

Ordinary things contain the deepest mysteries… If anything is described by an architectural plan, it is the nature of human relationships, since the elements whose trace it records – walls, doors, windows and stairs – are employed first to divide and then selectively to re-unite inhabited space.

Robin Evans’ 1978 essay Figures, Doors and Passages analyzes how ordinary elements of a plan and their arrangements interact and shape occupancy. A simple corner or window opening is in fact inscribed with a complex matrix of spatial relationships that determine how a space is used. Neri&Hu’s design for Bloomberg Hong Kong’s internal office stair is in part inspired by the mundane elements of space-making – windows, passages, staircases and thresholds. The client’s brief was to design a staircase to connect the 3 different floors of their office with the explicit rule that this stair should to be used daily as the only vertical connection within the office to encourage employee interaction. Part of the brief was to also create a design that would respond to the locale of Hong Kong to create a link to the larger context of the city. The site is situated in the client’s existing office, within a typical office tower and surrounded by existing conference rooms, break-out areas, a recording studio and an auditorium. The existing spiral staircase was sculpturally iconic but the geometry was not conducive for the daily high traffic volume. Our challenge was re-design a staircase that would work within the structural limitations of the knock-out panels in the floor slab, while still creating a more spacious journey.
