A House









經過翻新的建築將能源需求降到最低,採用高優質絕緣建築材料,加上朝南的坐向大大提高了建築圍護結構以保持熱能。根據計算,此棟翻新後的建築一年能源使用于冷、暖氣、通風、管線和照明一共預計只需43kwh / m2a。




Project design director Ryan Kuo said : Although this is a workspace, I hope to bring people a home feeling- feeling warm and safe. This allows one to build a close relationship between people and the environment.The appearance of the sloping roof is like a home. Part of this is a concern for the environment. We want to renovate buildings in a way that minimizes energy waste.

This is a concept that extends from home to a work place. Work can be like a home where people can generate close relations.Outside the old red brick wall, the architect decided to build a new layer of the red brick wall. The middle of the two red brick walls remains hollow. The air in the middle isolates the outdoor heat conduction and forms effective isolation with benefit for the building.Meanwhile, using German KANEKER technology, the west side wall was kept to preserve the interaction between the outdoor and the indoor. It not only blocks the conduction of air and radiant heat, but also adds a clever spin to a traditional design.

For the landscape, Rice field is in the memory of South of Yangtze River. A small farm in front of the building makes a joyful and harmony living space for the employees. It implies the concept of the building “grains and towns”.

Provide workplaces with Home“ feel and “Ambience”. Then we are never far away from home.


Daylight is the main design feature of this building. It employs not only façade windows, but also skylights in the atriums, which improve the daylight environment at the inner area.


Energy saving lamp and automatic lighting system are used for saving light energy. As calculated, the energy consumption of the building is expected to reach 43kwh/m2a for cooling, heating, ventilation, plumbing and lighting annually.


This building is refurbished following the 3R (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) principle. It is part of old structure and walls are conserved. The demolished bricks and concrete are applied to the construction.

Architecture + interior + aesthetics + craft + health + planting + interaction + solar terms + nature.
