Located on outskirts of an industrial city, Wrapped Volumes caters as a sales pavilion for a developer's residential project. Without any evident immediate context, the pavilion takes its cues from the connecting road. We transformed this progressive movement of the road along the site into a harmonious wrapped geometry. As a result, the structure elevates itself from the ground. Some parts of this wrap form a landscape layer and other a protective skin on the south. The pavilion weaves the landscape and structure, engaging an individual to transcend from exterior to interior spaces.
Best in Black is a project that aims to create a new kind of residential building. The interior design of the apartments represents industrial design meeting Mexican architecture, the materials selected like wood, concrete and marble give the space a warm look and the palate of colors white and black represent the idea of the facade of the interior design. The four facades are clearly inspired in a random placement of the Tetris game shapes forming the walls and windows of the building, creating lighted atmospheres that generate comfort for the user.
The design project is for a reception center; cultural presence is adopted in the main space, while the three model houses are built in the styles of contemporary humanities and cultures, a modern flat, and contemporary neoclassical architecture. The integrated space of contemporary and humanities has layouts including a 5-table meeting area, a model engineering building, a coffee table area, 2 VIP rooms, 3 model houses, a parent-child playground area, a demonstration of a shallow water well; it reveals a luxurious atmosphere of leisure in the rural area.
The bionic form of the whale became the language of this chapel. A whale stranded on the coast of Iceland. A person can enter its body through a low fishtail and experience the perspective of a whale looking at the ocean where is easier for humans to reflect on the neglect of environmental degradation. The supporting structure falls on the beach to ensure minimal damage to the natural environment. Natural and environmentally friendly materials make this project a tourist destination that calls for environmental protection.
The continuous undulating roof of the tourist distribution center is not only a tribute to the common saddle mountain wall in the east of Fujian, but also a unity of order among the scattered six small units. However, under the unified roof, the cultural and sports activity center has a number of small blocks, which looks like a miniature city. The boundary of the two buildings is the circular and square ambulatory, which is not only the designer's adaptation and response to Zhou Ning's rainy and cold climate, but also the non-verbal expression of the "fish sacrifice" culture.
The PolyCuboid is the new headquarter building for TIA, a company that provides insurance services. The first floor was shaped by the limits of the site and the 700mm diameter water pipe that is crossing the site underground limiting foundation space. The metallic structure dissolves into the diverse blocs of the composition. The pillars and beams vanish from the space syntax, projecting the impression of an object, while also eliminating that of a building. The volumetric design is inspired by TIA’s Logo turning the building itself into an icon representing the company.
