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.

Concept Design for an residential complex


The three Villas all have separate unobstructed views of the ocean and the horizon.  A communal amenities building is located at the top end of the site.  The design concept is to integrate the architecture into the land as to create a natural balance between nature and dwelling.  The merging of building and land allows the residences to appear and disappear depending on where the viewer is placed.
