Cliff House

This is a fishing cabin with a mountain view, on the bank of Heaven River (‘Tenkawa’ in Japanese). Made of reinforced concrete, the shape is a simple tube, six meters long. The roadside end of the tube is counterweighted and anchored deep in the ground, so that it extends horizontally from the bank and hangs out over the water. The design is simple, the interior is spacious, and the riverside deck is open to the sky, the mountains and the river. Built below the road level, only the roof of the cabin is visible, from the roadside, so the construction does not block the view.

Villa AT

Villa AT is located on a high vantage point, with an L-shaped floor plan pivots around a long curved glass façade, offering cinematic views of the landscape.

Thin timber slats gently curve around the façade to create strong but soft forms. From a distance, the Villa AT has a serene, minimal appearance, but up close the rough texture of timber slats become apparent.

Impression Nanxi River

The designer seems want to present his project with local culture elements. We can feel some regional features and humanistic methods through the works. Chinese culture is mysterious and the history is quite long. How to express the real eastern aesthetic design in a right way is still a precious thing we should take care of. And in the form of a distinction between any similar projects, leaves us good impression! We wish there will be more project to be created with methods of sustainability and can be eco-friendly.

MODERN LODGE

Inspired by the owner's creative process of capturing an experience with a still photo, the house is two simple platonic forms - one resting on the other - pulled apart to create an aperture to the lake. The view is revealed once you enter the house, leaving the city behind and immersing yourself in lake living. The main public space is a wood clad, two-story volume filled with light and the lake view. This is contrasted by a crisp, white stucco volume housing the private functions. Large boulders unearthed during construction connect the house to the land, otherwise leaving the lot natural.

Da Chang Muslim Cultural Center

This is a poetic sanctuary that shows people both the brilliant Islamic culture and our vision for a better life. This is also a homelike cultural center that provides a spiritual home for local residents especially Muslims. Based on traditional mosque, the building subtly interprets the spatial structure of mosque with new materials and technologies.The dome sees the translation and abstraction of Islamic symbols rather than simple mimicking. We constitute the dome with petaloid shells and creatively transform the interior space into a semi-exterior roof garden flooded with sunshine, air.
