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.

Garden Dwelling explores, re-examines the conventional attitudes towards contemporary housing. The garden is placed both physically and spiritually at the centre of the house. Inspired by the traditional British terraced house, we have manipulated its architectural DNA to create a stacked housing concept with three different intensities of garden.

The strategy has been to take the typical terraced house and turn it inside-out into a new contemporary paradigm. The 21st century living will be governed by a new, more sporadic manner of urban living- our paradigm no longGarden Dwelling explores, re-examines the conventional attitudes towards contemporary housing.
