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.

Itaewon, 2012

Re-modelling of a 1970's detached house into a Italian Restaurant

We were approached by the client to transform this 1963 detached urban house into a Italian restaurant. Our approach has been to maintain the character of the original brick building and introduce a new wall concept that will wrap the building both internally and externally. The core of the space has been gutted at ground level to allow for an open plan eating area, which extends into the garden, via a full height sliding window. Planning is expected in June 2012.
