The scheme consists of a two-story lifted glass box and a sequence of double layered perforated metal panels. Resonating with the form of ancient Chinese lucky animal, the form of the project takes inspiration of “dragon”, a symbol of success and luck. Giving maximum presence to the context, the overall massing of project applies advantage of the length of the site to make a continuous extension to all dimensions of the project.


In addition, the gradually transformed perforated metal panels also provide an eco-friendly solution to prevent direct sunlight exposure into the interior space to reduce the usage of air condition and artificial lighting devices.
