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.

Kim House
Anyang, 2011

Concept Proposal for a Detached House Outside Seoul

The Kim Family House is located in Anyang, south Korea.  With the two children having moved out of the house the Kim family wanted to build a house for their retirement.  We created a house with four windows, one on each orientation, with a protected central courtyard where the couple could relax outdoors without been seen by their neighrbours.
