An apartment on Stubbs Road is an open and tranquil 2,700 square foot space defined by a 16m long sinuous wood wall, strong axial views lumi-nous ceiling oculi, and special hidden built-in wall features accommodating the specific daily routines of its residents. The residence is structured around a continuous communal area of the living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. The gentle, undulating grey wood wall unifies these spaces, drawing occupants from the narrow interior kitchen area towards the wide living room with its grand vista of the Happy Valley Race course below. The subtle shades of grey; from gun metal grey to light ash, delicately accentuates this progression while also providing a neutral backdrop for the rich colors of the selected modern Scandinavian furniture.

The 21st century opens a gateway to the new era of modern technologies and innovations. With the widespread of 3D and even 4D high definition movies available on global market, the old method of filming has gone scarce, if not extinct. When thinking of the theme for this cinema, the designers want to trace back to the roots when film making began. Back in the 19th century, photographers captured continual images and stored them on a single compact reel of film. This ancient object – roll films, was being symbolized all over the cinema, reminding the audience the long forgotten history behind the scene.
Harvested from plantations that procure income to millions of people, coconut wood is a sustainable product by excellence. The cycle of coconut production, felling/processing and re-plantation, guaranties a sound renewable supply that doesn’t impact the environment. After being used all their life coconuts, the trees become senile around 60 years old. They can then be cut and used for construction, furniture and decoration, which will constitute a windfall profit for the farmer and an excellent material for sustainable Architecture.

MegaBox is a shopping, dining and entertainment destination in East Kowloon, Hong Kong. This vertical mall is spread into 19 levels with a total area of 110,000 sqm. Our renovation design aims to bring a new fresh look onto the concept of a “big box” of di versified offer, and promote significant changes for a smoother operation and better customer satisfaction. Those are: creation of clear drop-off and pick -up zones, strong and comfortable sense of arrival, implementation of effective digital way-finding and directories signage, improvement of vertical circulation strategy, enhancement of lighting and general ambiance.
In continuation of the study of vector based geometries, the Hong Kong Ferry Terminalis a proposal that demonstrates the aesthetics of vector curvatures and natural parameterization. The formulation of forces and arcs give rise to multiplicity in Euclidean geometry around a given set of parameters. Due to the magnitude and direction of layered line segments, the connecting lines generate varied degrees of arcing paths and surfaces, from simple to the complex. The increase in variables may restrict or give rise to excessive deformation in reasoned geometric expression. The intention behind the ferry terminal is to focus the current modes of curved vector tectonics and apply its discourse into the synthesis ofthe body or shell of the building.
Spring is a newly established learning center for children that eschews the fairytale cliche of its genre: space filled rainbow colours, cartoon characters, toys and stuff, which is often the result of superimposing an adult’s perspective onto the space. For this project, the designer tried to look at the picture from a child’s viewpoint, and concentrate on the learning experience as a whole. The aim is to formulate a space that caters to children’s both physical and psychological needs, and ultimately help them achieve their development and learning potential.
