Architecture is about providing appropriate shelters for human functions and activities through a comprehensive understanding of our living environment, our society and culture, our history and technology. The aim is to provide sustainable future for the next generation.

Research into the site context, building functions, and statutory constrains to provide a solution by developing an architectural design through a process of conceptualization and rationalization which echoes the past and forecast the future in a meaningful way.
