Chi Lin Nunnery Phase IV Development

Recreation the Glory of Tang Dynesty.

Nan

Lian Garden is situated at Diamond Hill of Kowloon, taking in the full view of southeast Kowloon. Being a designated public park, occupying an area of 3.5 hectares, Nan Lian Garden is built in the classical Tang Dynasty style (618 AD to 907 AD), on the blue print of Jiangshouju, the only Tang landscape garden the original layout of which can still be placed and traced today, and the shape of which bears a significant resemblance to the Garden site. Hills and rocks, waters, plants and timber structures are built and arranged according to classical Tang style and rules, accommodating the local environ, and the best view of the sprawling mountain range to the north is taken as the seamless backdrop. Besides adorned with

characteristic timber structures, the garden is studded with clusters of bizarre rocks and planted with lots of old and valuable trees. The Garden is a Tang garden built in modern times, its architecture and landscaping reminiscent of nature and conducive towards a sense of serenity and tranquility, an ambience in which visitors may enjoy a moment of leisure and peace of mind, whilst reflecting on the profound richness of classical Chinese culture, right in the midst of the urban city hustle and bustle. It is hoped this will help promote the knowledge of and interest in classical Chinese culture. In the garden there are a souvenir shop, vegetarian food restaurant, Chinese teahouse and multi-purpose function room to cater for the various needs of visitors.

Maxim’s New Cake and Bakery Factory Development

High Degree of Flexibility

The existing bakery factory in Cheung Sha Wan became inadequate due to the rapid growth of Maxims’ Group. A new cake and bakery factory was needed in Tai Po Industrial Estate in order to cater for the expansion. This development is an alteration and addition works with a vertical extension of two-storey to an early 80s building. On the ground floor, through the main entrance, is the loading and unloading area, leading to large walk-in freezers and goods lift lobbies. The above three floors include the new extension house workshops, walk-in freezers, a staff canteen and an office overlooking the Tai Po Industrial Estate.

Efficiency and flexibility are crucial to the daily operation of a food factory. Therefore, all the workshops are centrally located; vertical circulations are arranged so that the transportation paths of the raw materials of the finished products will not cross each other causing food contamination. A new vehicular run-out is provided at Dai Kwai Street such that a oneway circulation path is formed for a smooth and efficient operation.

This

two-storey columbarium is a new building designed to cope with the increasing demand of cremains storing place. To match up with the present urn houses’ outlook, the traditional Chinese ancient architectural design was adopted, like Chinese glazed roof tiles and stone railing. There is an important folkway of Chinese to hold memorial ceremony for ancestors or passing person. Hence, the existing columbariums are always overcrowded during Ching

Ming Festival and Chung Yeung Festival. To assist in channelizing the heavy human flow and the expanded population of elderly and disabled, an additional monumental archway and two staircases were proposed. The courtyard and the surrounding gardening areas allow family gathering and enhance the natural lighting and ventilation to each hall. Different from the old-fashioned design, the internal partition of urns store could be removed to allow the couple or the family for putting their urns together as per their wish.

Situated in a tiny site in Tsing Yi, the three storey high church including one assembly hall and a few Bishop’s offices and classrooms cannot accommodate the increasing number of followers in the neighbourhood. A new three storeys high building extension was therefore designed, and a comprehensive renovation is proposed to this existing church building. The project includes different types of works: demolition, site formation, piling, superstructure, renovation,

landscaping and also fitting out works. It is difficult to carry out construction works in such a highly congested site. The location of piles could neither sit on the existing caissons nor close to the existing huge trees, a specially designed structure thus proposed to tackle this site condition. We make use of the space confined, putting the plant rooms underneath the pitched roof, below first floor and even inside the cupola in order to free up more space for the assembly hall and the classrooms. To fulfill the needs from client, we think outside the box to resolve difficulties.

The design for the showroom strictly followed the standards of Rolls Royce’s Corporate Image, and our company had to work closely with the Goodwood’s representatives during design and construction stage.

The works include interior and building services fitting out, exterior cladding, floor tile and signage installation. Minor Works submission to Building Authority was also required for the exterior signages. To create a calm and holistic atmosphere, the walls and floors were covered with Limestone. Thus the challenge was to make sure the natural material was carefully treated to withstand wear and tear by constant mobility of display cars. The aluminium louvers with indirect lighting effect further enhanced and harmonised the quality of the space.

Also, most of the ceiling, floor and wall installation had to be pre-ordered from Europe, meaning that our team had to play an important role in project coordination. The success in space planning and use of contemporary building material resulted in a chic showroom, which not only promote the brand, but also brought in new, exciting sight to the Wan Chai district.

One proposal manipulates the existing structure of the hall to create a solemn space. In order to minimize the alteration yet enhancing the acoustic performance, we propose to apply new finishing for the stage and keep the existing floor finishes of the hall. By using carpet and curtain on the stage, the reverberation time will be improved and the echo problem could be greatly mitigated. Certain

Another Option is inspired by the idea of minimalism. It introduces a new ‘Hat’ made of gypsum board to cover up all the conduits, trunkings and other building services, to give a sleek touch to the interior. The design also retains and emphasizes the natural lighting of the existing church hall by using new decorative metal grilles at high level windows.

iSquare, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon

Architecture is a live performance with its users. Cineplex is a place of conscious interactions, an active centre stage contrary to the ordinary passive cinema place. People entering a cinema are looking for fantasy and enchantments. We offer these dream seekers a chance to find their own fantasies and enchantments. How do we do it?

The Dream of the Red Chamber we created dwelt in our own heritage. We took elements from our culture either direct and literal or, abstract and figurative to different extent transforming them, expanding them or condensing them to generate interesting spaces or motifs. The aim is to make it a classy place of refined taste, distinctively different from the general pop cultures. It is there to intensify the gaze, provoke thoughts and conversations, whereby all is inspired to create their own memorable episodes here in this UA Red Chamber. This is the reason why they choose to come back again and again – to be seen and, to pick up the dreams of their life.

We entered the competition for the

Year of Completion

conceptual design of UA Cinema at Mall of the World, Zhujiang, Guangzhou, PRC in 2011.

2012 Location Mall of the World, Zhujiang, Guangzhou

The project features one IMAX and two VIP theatres, together with ten traditional auditoriums, with approximately 1,600 seats.

The most unique thing about the spacial arrranegement is that the concierge is located in a main circulation corridor of the shopping mall, and the cinema houses are accessible directly from the shopping mall. Thus, making the cinema houses dispersed from one another. In order to create a more united space, we introduced the theme of “Tapestry of Molten Ice�, represented by different forms of solid, liquid and gas that immerse into various zones of the Cinema. This idea not only ties up all the individual spaces, it also creates contrasting spatial experience along the way to a particular zone.

The “Day” zones are mainly for the entrance, snack bar and corridor spaces; while the “Night” theme occupies the cinema houses. In order to achieve this contemporary sensation, the design emphasises a lot on simple geometry and soft lighting effects.
