AT L A S G A L L E RY & S T UDIOS FOR EDM UND D E WA A L & T H E L IT T LE STEEL M ESTER Located in Atlas, Sheffield, amidst the industrial remains of Sheffieldâ€™s famous steelmaking history in Lower Don Valley - this project provides studio spaces and a gallery for contemporary ceramics artist Edmund de Waal, as well as for local blacksmith artists. The design focuses around the idea of celebrating the contrasts between delicacy/purity and griminess/roughness, while aiming to bridge the adjacent Pitsmoor community with the forgotten industry through an interplay between art and social opportunities. The Corner Pin, an old retired steelmakerâ€™s pub on the site, is revived and complimented with an outdoor beer garden to create a new social hub in Atlas.

Sheltered by a translucent canopy bringing in unique lighting, the three-dimensional qualities of the beer garden creates a pleasant atmosphere and is connected to the adjacent pub (the Corner Pin). It is a social hub for Edmund de Waal (and his workers), the blacksmith artists, and the local community.

Edmundâ€™s Throwing Mezzanine Edmund De Waal
A simple, intimate space for Edmund de Waal to turn his wheel and fully concentrate on his artistry.
Mini Forge Characterized by its textured, dim, mysterious qualities directly contrasting with EDW’s studios. Forge area connects with Edmund’s firing space.
Edmund De Waal’s Main Studio Characterized by its purity, lightness, and open plan. High windows mimic industrial warehouses in scale, and are frosted to diffuse light and overall brighten the space.

E D I NBURG H CH I LD R EN’S M USI C CENTR E Located adjacent to Edinburgh Castle & along the Grassmarket Square in the Old Town of Edinburgh, this project provides practice spaces and a performance theatre for local children interested in playing instrumental music. The design of the project revolved around two kinds of spaces: 1. ‘focus’ - spaces that heighten the focus and individual growth of each students (practice rooms and performance space) 2. ‘activity’ - in-between spaces that enable social interactions and collaborative practice (central circulation and practice rooms’ hallways) Meticulous attention was given towards developing these two distinct spaces to meet the social and independent needs of young children, while further cultivating their love for music.

Concrete foundation acts as a plinth where other elements lie upon. Alternated cores structurally fasten the lower & upper elements, stabilizing the building.
The site is a threshold between the vibrant Grassmarket Square and the dynamic castle. By stepping back from the market and taking yourself towards the other end of the site, you can surround yourself in serenity while having a beautiful view across the city. The design of my building fully utilizes this poetic nature of the site to create a place where children can find joy in playing music to the city.

To k yo , Ja p a n h t t ps://w w w.a sa i -a rchi .c om / For most of the time during my two-month internship at AAR+, I was actively involved with the interior design team. This included contributing ideas for the interior layout and design of several hotel lobbies and communal areas of residential complexes. Some of my work revolved around sketching spaces to communicate my own ideas of interior finishes, working with AutoCAD and furniture catalogs to come up with my own full interior design proposal for communal areas of a hotel currently under construction, drawing special furniture for custom orders, and so on.
