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.

Urban Living
Seoul, 2013
Residential Complex Proposal


Seoul has a huge undersupply of hotel rooms proportional to the number of visiting tourists.  The statistcis are staggering: over the last decade Seoul has increased its foreign visitors by 6 fold to around 12 million visitors/year.

Our client wants to address this problem in the market by creatinga a micro business hotel based on a "bespoke"  container system.  Working together with leading korean steel manufacturers we have developed a unit system hotel that creates very diverse facade systems usings a fixed module type.
