The first lines of ET Hus in Tisvilde was drawn on a napkin in a bar in Shanghai. The future owner dreamed of a sanctuary. A place he could use throughout the year, whenever he needed serenity and immersion in his private and professional life. It should be a holiday cottage – but not in the classic sense. The owner wanted luxury as you experience it at a hotel – and it should maintenance-free. The first lines on the napkin was the first of our houses – a total of 143m2 personality, built without any compromise.

Shanghai Baoye Center is part of the phase-2 urban development scheme for the new Central Business District in Hongqiao, a rapidly developing piece of western Shanghai. The location of the project puts it at the center of car, train, and jet transportation, and is in fact the last building one sees before entering the busy Hongqiao High-Speed Rail Terminal from the south by bullet train, granting the project a significant urban presence.The site has several challenging conditions: sandwiched by two city-designated temporary green spaces into an L shape, with a 60% frontage ratio requirement to the east, west and south, and a 24m tall highway overpass running adjacent to its north face, the building must respond to a maximum FAR of 1.60 and a height of 24m.

Courtyard, in Chinese architecture, is not only a tradition of physical space, but also a core of emotion and communication. It helps people to keep cohesion of the family and strengthen the contacts with friends and relatives, and to connect nature and universe in a touchable way. Yet this heritage is today already an impossible dream for most of urban citizens.

Historical Background: Acquisition of the Project & Concept
At the beginning of the project there was a careful research focused on the dualism between classic and contemporary, international and traditional, public and private spaces, to integrate all those aspects in a fluid and natural way.
Precisely, it has been the dualism of public and private that has strongly influenced the project concept.

Jade Museum Xintiandi inspiration comes from Chinese jade and contemporary interpretation of calligraphy. The space is mainly for traditional jade exhibition, but the challenge is how to express a special space with East Zen and integrate into the commercial atmosphere of Xintiandi in a contemporary way. Although the overall volume is small, we try to see much in little and deal with the possibilities of a small-scale space abstractly. The experience inside the space is like in a shadowy painting scene with the power of nature like waves and thunders of a waterfall. We take the simplest sphere as the geometric object of operation, hide the structure and highlight the intention of space. Of course, during a very short-time construction period, digital fabrication method provides the quality assurance.
