The client is a person who loves nature and cats. He hopes that his new home can have some natural elements, and at the same time, it won't be too complicated with low cost. In addition, considering that expensive leather and other materials will be easily scratched by cats and cause unnecessary waste, the client communicates with designers, hopes to abandon the luxury materials and complete the house construction with low budget. The house is located in Yunnan, which is rich in bamboo. Combining the owner’s requirements, we integrate the local bamboo elements, work to keep the integrity of the space at a low cost, and build a very simple and elegant living aesthetic space.
In the hallway, simple cabinet is set for storage and wooden stool is to facilitate shoe changing. There is also a photo column on the wall, in order to make full use of the space, to display the beautiful moments of life, such as lovely cats, travel photos, paper cutting, etc. The living room is decorated with the self-colored background wall, you can see the crisscross texture on the wall is like the trees growing near the house. The beige fabric sofa echoes with the simple wooden tea table. Every detail is a haunting spiritual residence, where there are laughter and leisure. We use the eco-friendly wooden floor in the bedroom, and a small bamboo table and Futon are placed on the bay window, which is convenient for the family to enjoy a cup of tea and meditate here, with a sense of Zen. The whole space is decorated with bamboo crafts, with the aroma of bamboo. It is such a gentle house with the light linen facing and warm natural color furnishing.
In order to create a distinctive decorative effect, we need to use local natural materials. However, excessive use will accelerate the destruction of the original ecological environment of the forest. Therefore, we try our best to use ecologically sustainable materials to create high-quality indoor space in the process.

Total area: 95 square meters.

Floral-kindergarten is located in the water town of Limer, Hanover, Germany. Near the kindergarten is a residential planning area and the Leane River. On the other side of the river is the garden and jungle, which retains the original natural area due to the rare development.

Providing a natural and safe learning environment is our primary design philosophy. Children could see different natural landscapes through rooms shaped like petals. This design also brings good light to the interior space. Each teaching space is connected to a multi-functional classroom in the middle. Due to flower form design reduces the length of the corridor and it provides a more open and safe space for kids. There is a circular reading area above the center's active space and there will be plenty of light through the central patio to the house.
The space on the second floor is a multi-functional area. The patio of the ring active space enhances the interactivity and light transmission of the vertical space. Completely separated from the teaching area, not only to ensure the quality of the classroom, but also to allow children to have a play space to play indoors. This is an important space design for Hanover, which is often raining.

Bringing sunshine, air and nature into this school is our goal. We also expect this design to extend the integrity of nature and ecology to the next generation. It also gives the next generation of homeowners more opportunities to learn how to coexist with the planet.

The main materials of the building are recycled wood and CLT. Thus, the burden of building on the environment is reduced. In addition to the roof there are also parts of solar panels and plants to achieve purifying air and electricity supply.A curved design and a large number of green plants are used on the roof to achieve a more comprehensive concept of a green kindergarten.

In the dystopian near future, this facility will be the first in the UK to grow and sell recellularized meat. Animal tissue taking over its host plant will be the future of meat consumption. The facility will take visitors on a guided tour to learn about the process, from growing to slaughter.

By 2050, a global population of 9.8 billion will demand 70% more food than is consumed today. Feeding this expanded population nutritiously and sustainably will require substantial improvements to the global food system – one that provides livelihoods for farmers as well as nutritious products for consumers.
World Economic Forum (2019)

Design a Food Production Centre for the year 2050 with 3 functions; Production - Selling - Education

With the world slowly moving toward the consumption of cultured meat, this concept will look at the possible next big step to revolutionize the meat industry; Recellularized meat. This technique allows animal cells to grow within a decellularized plant. Currently, this alternative is in its infancy, with research being done on the possibility of growing human tissue in plants to restore organ tissue. One of the benefits of recellularized meat over cultured meat is that the structure of recellularized meat is similar to naturally grown meat, creating a more pleasurable eating experience. This concept will focus on the possibility of having a centre for production, education and selling of this new meat alternative.

The narrative of this design is inspired by a classic novel/film narrative in which the observer first considers the new environment to be a Utopia only to be slowly revealed to be a Dystopia. In the design, this narrative coincides with the process of recellularization, where the process of the animal cells taking over the host plant sets the scene for the dystopian environment.

Technical notes:
Windows and door are reverted to their original 1870 state
The original roof is remover and replaced by an organic structure made out of a space truss.

Notes on materials:
Channel glass is use to separate the 2 areas
A composite acrylic is use like Hi-Macs or Corian in Alpine white for the main organic structures.
The walkways are made from the same material but in black, so to highlight the journey through the space.
Multiple sorts of white tiles are used throughout the space.

The interior space of Novotel hotel that its main lobby especially has not really impressed with the brand and its location in Saigon.
Based on Novotel's 'Time with you' criteria and images of 'trees' are everywhere in Saigon. The image of trees exists everywhere in Saigon such as: Gia Dinh Park, Le Van Tam Park, Tao Dan Park, Thao Cam Vien, ...
Forming the idea of a modern space but still bringing the breath of nature: not just from the street Saigon, but even after entering the building, 'trees' are still present. Affirmation of an umbrella Saigon Modern but still in harmony with nature.
Using a combination of Biomimetic Design and Modern Style.
Biomimetic Design (Bio-inspired design) is a design approach based on inspiration, measure, and reproduction of the appearance or nature of a biological object.
Modern Style is a school of architecture developed during the period from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Characterized by simple lines, color palettes and the use of materials from finishing to decoration are very diverse. and easy to find. The style is easy to mix & match with other styles to create a luxurious and comfortable space.
The idea of ​​false ceiling with embossed triangular aluminum module panels in the shape of leaves with slots for LED lights to create the image of 'light through the foliage shining down'.
The idea of a tree-shaped steel column with branches reaching up to the ceiling (the foliage).
And the concept of 'Visual highlight' is a pendant light with leaf modules and an ornamental pond that evokes the image of leaves falling to the water surface in nature.
