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.

300 sqm interior fitout for a Seoul Law Company

In the heart of Seoul’s Business district of Gangnam, we were approached by JP Law, an established law company to design their new offices on the top floor of a 24 storey building. The design focuses on opening up the reception directly to the panoramic views and allowing the surrounded meeting rooms and office space to maximize the natural light and views.

We used three materials in different forms. Glass as sandblasted and “magic” where the glass pane can be activated and deactivated on the basis of privacy with an electric current. Wood, two different timbers on the walls and floor to create warmth and hue and finally aluminum furniture a material that is cold and precise.
