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.

Resort
Seoul, 2013
Neighbouring Circles

We were approached by a private client to propose a new Master-Plan of a new cultural resort in the south of Korea, on a idyllic site close to the ocean.  The Brief and programme are all orientated towards “family” tourism, where amenities and residences would be integrated into the natural topography.  Our proposal focuses on respecting the natural landscape and working with the existing infrastructure the site already has.

At the center of the Master-Plan is a “Hub”, a series of three circular buildings, which acts as a magnet connecting the various elements of the design, which include high and middle end residences.  The Programmes of the Hub relate to Spa and wellbeing treatments together with a special pavilion dedicated to culinary ceremonies.  The project is currently being developed to Schematic Design stage.
