Carved into a dune along the coast of northern China’s Bohai Bay, the UCCA Dune Art Museum gently disappears beneath the sand. Simple, pure, and touching, the museum’s organic, cave-like concrete forms are a return to primal and timeless forms of space.
Le Petit Prince House is designed for two generations under one roof. Between each horizontal or vertical layer, you can peer through the “real” space to find cracks and crevices that create an illusion of deep valleys — offering a glimpse into “virtual” space.
As part of the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale, Hong Kong House is an art gallery and an artist residence aims to facilitate cultural exchange between Hong Kong artists and local residents. The design team respectfully integrates Hong Kong House into this peaceful neighborhood by generating simple form and using locally-sourced materials.
In this case, we will extend the outdoor green environment to the virtual space of the building. As the life in the living room and the external environment fit together, we tend to search for a simplification of the lifestyle we have to bring us closer to those precious moments of peace.
Harbour Kiosk is the first kinetic public architecture in Hong Kong. Inspired by the local hawker stalls, Harbour Kiosk automatically transforms its “gate” into “awning” during the day and returns to its compact shape at night.
Qing-Yuan Tea House is located on Qingyuan Mountain in Quanzhou which is the famous historical and cultural city. This project is designed by Atelier RIGHT HUB, creating the boutique homestay project which has the ZEN color and the architectural facades are organically merged into the Qingyuan Mountain shape.
Standing panels and beams of light add a distinct air of mystery to the space, igniting a sense of adventure in those who enter. Each space feels connected, yet utterly independent of another, similar to winding and twisting alleyways of ancient cities.
The design for the car accessory brand A PIT centered around the theme “Cars and Humans Both Need to Charge Their Batteries”. The first floor is dominated by cars, the second floor is full of eight different times of different lifestyle themes. There’s also featuring a coffee shop and a bookstore where friends and families of all ages can come to relax.
As a silent field, the museum not only provides blank space to artistic works, but also displays exhibits in a well-planned manner to allow viewers to concentrate.
Take the design at the entrance for example. Its curved circulation line borrows the form of Moon Lake, a famous local scenic spot. The slope is gradually lowered, creating a ceremonial sense for people, and leaving disturbing noises outside.
