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.

Seoul, 2010

Design Concept


We were asked by a developer to create a new identy for all the communal and commercial spaces connected with a new Residential project just outside Seoul.

The Gwanggyo New Town Office-tel project is divided into two proposals. Firstly we developed a design for the communal areas of the complex: which consisted of a plinth design as well as a new pavilion building. The second part of the commission involved the development of the new identity for the Office-tel apartments based on our “Open Living” concepts.
