The site for this house is surrounded by the owner's garment factory to the north, the factory's parking lot and inner road to the east and the outer road to the south. In order to provide the privacy for this house from the factory, the service quarter is placed along the north side of the property to push the main house away from the factory. furthermore, the second floor facade that face north is screened by wooden screen for privacy reason. The house consists of 2 linear blocks orients north-south to capture North-South prevailing breezes. All major rooms open out to the garden which function as the view for the house and help screen out the dust and noise from the outer road.

The brief is to create a “work environment” of a special kind that able to turn to be the owner private residence when the owner retired, without major renovation. The project evokes a sense of transparency and purity while also not only providing protection from sun and rain but also allows for natural light, view and ventilation. The project is divided in 2 buildings, the front one holds the reception area (living area when used as the owner’s private residence). Between this one and the second building which holds working area (2 master bedrooms when used as the owner’s private residence), the koi pond with big trees which allows view for both buildings. At the rear of the project located a very private swimming pool. The existing trees not only preserved but also be the starting point of the project. Apart from the orientation, cross ventilation, water feature like koi pond and swimming pool act as natural cooling system for the project. The “servant” spaces are organized in the austere masses and located in the east and the west to reduce heat gain to the buildings. The project uses low flow fixtures together with water saving sanitary wares in order to save water, while grey water and rain water harvesting system is used to water the garden. On the roof, photovoltaic panels are installed to generate electricity.

Barge day club
This high-end, high luxury barge day club is composed of restaurant, bar and infinite edge pool with pool bar. This barge will powered by LNG(Liquefied Natural Gas), since LNG emits no sulfur dioxide, has a 95-100% reduction in particulate matter, an 85% reduction in nitrogen oxides and a 25% reduction in carbon. This barge could reduce emission through the development and use of exhaust gas cleaning systems across the barge. The systems are able to reduce sulfur compounds and particulate matter from the barge’s engine exhaust. Furthermore, this barge will reduce water usage by passenger and will also install the advanced waste water purification system (AWWPS) which treats black and grey water. The operation will also reduce the amount of waste generated on board.

This house enjoys a light-filled tranquility and simplicity of living.
The design was inspired by a desire to engage with the landscape and to celebrate the existing trees in the site. The architectural design prioritised reducing energy usage, the use of natural lighting and cross ventilation. Sustainability is an important element and the house is organised on two levels, which are integrated into the external landscape. The majority of rooms face south and are properly shaded by the geometry of the balconies and louvres to receive natural wind and avoid heat gain. Natural and stack-effect ventilation allows natural cooling of the house. Along with the usual array of rooms, such as reception and living areas, bedrooms and a study, a meditation area and koi pond is also included. The 735 sq.m. plot was conceived as a response to the context, sun, views, program established by the client and the idea of interacting with nature and landscape. When walking through the house entrance, residents will gradually discover a mixture of light and transparency, with expansive glazing opening the house up to the views. The living and dining areas have floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and a generous ceiling height, which allows the garden to flow uninterrupted to the living space.

The client, a couple with four children and their grandmother, wanted a property suitable for accommodating all three generations under one roof. The challenge was to design a home in which the family could enjoy each other’s company without having to compromise freedom, differing needs and privacy. As well as privacy, the maximization of views from every room and low energy consumption were the main aims. These priorities were achieved by providing cross ventilation throughout the house to reduce the reliance on air-conditioning; adding a double-sided wall with air gap in between to reduce heat gain on both the east and west side; and solar panels to provide hot water for the whole house. The north-south orientation of the 1,492 sq.m. site and the expected position of neighboring houses on vacant plots either side have been important issues for the project conception and development. the design strives to connect the house with the surrouding garden and lake with all rooms opening externally via large doorways. Water is an integral element of the project, providing a sense of reflection and recreation. A swimming pool is strategically placed to maximize the view and also to create a cooling breeze over the terrace and into the house as the southerly wind flows over its surface.
The project is for a single family with 3 kids who want to live nearby their parents but need their own privacy. All mature trees on the site are kept and capture the view of the lake to the north are the main objectives to be attained. Low energy consumption was a goal and this was achieved by provide every room with cross ventilation and double sided wall on east and west of the house. Furthermore, solar thermal collector panels are used to provide hot water for the whole house. Architectural features such as timber louvers, high overhangs not only add to the design vocabulary but assist in reducing heat gain into the house and hence making the structure more thermal efficient. For privacy reason, the service quarter is placed along east side in order to push the main house away from the neighbor. The house is experienced as choreographed and edited episode compression and expansion of light and shade, linear spaces and soaring volumes.

There are openings at the lower level of the wall letting the wind in, pushing the hot air up and escape from the top, setting up a convection current of natural ventilation. The steel structure of the warehouse are painted in yellow to create an alert working atmosphere
This house is located on an elongated plot of land oriented north-south, surrounded by three other plots. The plot to the front part of the north is current vacant of which a house may be built very soon. The plot adjacent to the north-east is vacant orchard and not in the premises of the neighborhood. The plot to the south has a house located on the west side and its garden on the east. The need for privacy was an important consideration, as was the desire to create view and a sense of continuity between the exterior and interior is emphasized throughout the house. The house was placed on the east part of the plot in an alternate position from the neighboring house in order to take the wind from the south without any obstruction and to create privacy for both, The covered walkway that is aligned with the garden connects the parking to the house. The L-shaped house looks inward to the garden and swimming pool. The exterior wall facing the adjacent property is kept solid with only necessary windows. In addition, the tropical architecture was also brought into consideration. All rooms have cross ventilation, the bed rooms on second floor all have high ceilings that slope upwards with windows that allow the hot air to ventilate easily whilst indirect light to enter the rooms. The roll-up curtains are installed on the outside of the house for the efficacy of sun protection and to keep the dust out of the house. To conserve water and energy, the recycled water system is used for watering the garden, While the solar cell is used to make hot water supply.
