本案業主為了方便兩個小孩就學及考量其未來成長的環境需要，從鄉間分散在聚落裡的大家庭獨立搬進城裡，但建築基地是城市街屋常見的狹長地形（W=10m , L=33m），兩側將來鄰房也極為相近，面對市區緊湊的環境，如何保有鄉間的綠意、採光、自在與安全成了本案的課題。
Concerning the environment for children’s further growth and education, the clients intend to relocate their family from the countryside to the city area. Sandwiched between adjoining similar houses, the site is a narrow and long townhouse (W=10m; L=33m).

Therefore the new one is consisted by air-vents in 3 different levels of heights which utilize the nature flow of winds and make physical condition comfortable and eco-friendly at the same time.
Every vent as a window, displays all kinds of events. Without specific scripts and special sets, people stay in it are the best interpretations of their lives. Different scenes reveal different life experiences as a minimized and condensed real world. Instead of facing TV in the living room all the time, people now are able to enjoy the natural, serene scenes of blue sky and sea. We insisted to simplify the designed outcome and make the space be able to be painted all the color of our lives.

Guangzhou "Lanshan" project is located in the suburb of Guangzhou, the largest city in the south of China, and after more than 4 years from the design to the construction, the compound residential shows some obviously different characteristics from the residential rapidly developed and constructed in most Chinese cities, standing as a light spot in the city area.
Firstly, the design features a "complex", namely, a variety of housing types, from the high-rise building to the multi-storey villa, until the low-storey townhouse, constituting a rich space form and an integrated community of multiple levels.
Secondly, it is "harmony", not only embodying the harmonious relationship between various residential types, but also including the harmony between architectural groups and the surrounding natural environment, as well as the architecture and landscape harmony – the two different styles set off each other and become better by each other.

Yilingbafang of Xi’an OCT covers 174,400 square meters of land while building area is 174.4 thousand square meters, which is within low-density community criteria.
Adopting traditional residential elements and emphasizing the level of space and order, the overall planning structure deploys the north-south cross grid as the main framework and concentrates on expression of the traditional Square-style planning.

18A SHOUSON HILL ROAD
香港深水灣壽山村道18A No. 18A, Shouson Hill Road, Deep Water Bay, Hong Kong
周余石（香港）有限公司 CYS Associates (HK) Ltd
This 3-storeys single house redevelopment sits on an existing platform, accessible by a car ramp down from Shouson Hill Road. Facing open views towards the Wong Chuk Hang valley with surrounding low-rise developments and dense landscape, the main challenge of the project was to maximize the view aspect of the house and keeping a high degree of privacy. The 3-storey height of the house within its physical confines warranted an exterior design that would minimize its visual bulk.
Inside the house, interconnectivity can be sensed in every corner, where the interior spaces, exterior gardens, surrounding existing landscape and the open scenery can be merged and flowed into one another by the fluidity in planning and a balanced use of window and glass door openings onto the exterior of the house facades.
Within limited spatial confines of the site and close proximity to the surrounding neighbourhood, in order to enhance and minimize the 3-storey house's visual bulk, the top third storey is faced with metal cladding to achieve an appearance of calm and lightness. Punched hole openings on the facades of the stone finished ground and second storeys provide a stately and refined outlook for the house. Landscape elements, reflective pool and lawns on the ground level provide a homely and relaxing spatial experience with a sense of luxury duly imbedded for the overall development.

The architecture is separated into 35 small volumes and shifting flexibly by corresponding to the surrounding nature as if the volumes are lightly swinging in wind. The slight shifts of the volumes bring wind and water into the space, and protect people from the strong sun light.
The living volumes are enclosed either by brushed anodized aluminum, which reflect soft light into the space of deep valley with a stream on the bottom, or by 5 different types of natural stones for the terraces, courtyard and gardens, where people see and touch in the life. The materials and details create the life with nature in contemporary way.

利安顧問有限公司 Leigh & Orange Ltd.
This project is located within South Lake region of Xian. The primary task of design is to harmonize modern dwellings within the local tradition, which unanimously illustrates itself in heritages, art works and historical motifs throughout the city.
A main architectural axis is created to strengthen and order the scheme. This key architectural space also acts as wind corridor which together with organic disposition and orientation of building, ensure site ventilation is optimized. Such planning also aids privacy and avoids interconnecting views, allowing residents to fully harvest lake views and natural daylight without worrying about being overseen.
A vehicular free environment is also created to remove visual, physical and atmospheric nuisance (in the way of noise and air pollution) from the primary internal and external living places. This clear and clean segregation encourages a more poetic interaction with the environment of the lake, enhancing its natural quality.
Vernacular materials are selected to strengthen the local characteristics and enhance sustainability at the same time. Rich bricks, local timber create a varying color palette representing the traditional Chinese ideology.

同時，本案藉著 「借景」，重新探討傳統獨立房屋的形態，打破 「長方盒子」的慣例。
The Residential Development, The Woods is an attempt to re-define the Typology of Residential Massing with a breakthrough by re-organizing and re-considering the inter-relationship of the components of residential blocks. The Twisted Boxes are an attempt to dismantle the monotony of conventional boxes of residential massing for achieving best of the site asset, manipulating the best of the view but screening off the undesirable objects.
The Twisted Boxes create interesting spatial quality internally with unconventional internal staircases. In addition, the “Home Sweet Home” ambience is dramatized by intensive Lighting ambience, both externally and internally, by the rich plantation from Entrance Portals to Pool Edge, as well as by the tranquilities suggested by the Reflective Pools throughout the landscape. The Twisted Boxes, with the aid of unconventional Lightness, Airiness and Tranquility, all added up to foster a strong sense and taste of contemporary and stylish living habitat.
