Condition_Lab is a Design Research Laboratory based within the School of Architecture at CUHK. Established in 2018, our primary focus is to improve people’s lives through design.

The Lab’s research resolves around designing socially responsible architectural prototypes. By working hand-in-hand with local partners on real sites, our aim is to develop projects that foster a better sense of community. The prototype acts as a vessel to generate new knowledge about how people inhabit their environment.

Our philosophy revolves around the paradox embedded into the word “condition”, as a noun it refers to a context, a circumstance, or a situation, while as a verb it implies change - to condition something based on an original state.

New Design for a two family house in heart of a dense residential neighborhood in Seoul


New design for a two families house in the heart of a residential area in Seoul.  The design responds to two local pressures; on the one side the tight urban fabric of the site and on the other the curved wall is a direct opening to the south view overlooking the ancient wall of Seoul.  The main floor of the house is on the second floor creating a “Piano Nobile” space for both families to congregate and dine/meet together.
