Design Concept As   per   design   requirements   of   the   Phase   3D   design   ideas   which   are   to   create   an   innovative   iconic   architecture, generate    ingenious    and    sustainable    low    carbon    design,    and    design    the    building    which    unifies    the    Park’s development   in   harmony   with   other   buildings   in   the   Park,   a   big   challenge   is   to   reveal   the   gateway   of   Hong   Kong Science   Park.   The   Park   is   the   place   where   the   science   and   its   technology   has   been   studied   and   developed   in Hong   Kong.   The   Ideal   symbolism   of   the   Park   is   required   to   have   its   new   introduction   among   other   building design   forms.   For   this   creation   of   the   new   icon,   our   initiation   to   design   is   crossed   over   to   the   idea   of   math, geometry,   or   even   comprehensive   symbols   to   create   a   physical   mass.   Then,   our   design   idea   has   been   narrowed down   into   a   form   that   will   mingle   those   symbols   as   well   as   the   design   requirements.   So,   we   introduce   the ‘CUBE’, as the new icon.  
주원교회 건축설계 디자인 / ARCHITECTURE DESIGN FOR CHURCH
The   “Cube”   has   been   evolved   in   design   process.   It   is   transformed   from   its   own   form   to   another.   In   order   to follow   one   of   the   required   design   elements,   the   form   is   oriented   toward   sun   angles   to   maximize   the   absorption of   the   solar   energy.   The   Sun   will   be   utilized   to   generate   electric   power   through   the   installed   photovoltaic   panels on   tilted   roof   area.   So,   the   entire   electric   consumption   of   the   building   will   be   covered   through   this   system except   retail   and   coffee   area   at   level   1.   The   energy   will   be   gathered   to   the   battery   installed   at   level   4   and   level   5, and   it   will   be   closely   connected   to   the   Photovoltaic   Panels   installed   on   the   same   levels.   In   addition,   inclined facade   walls   represent   sustainable   ideas   of   the   material   uses.   It   uses   dual   layered   composite   panels.   The   wall unit   is   combined   with   light   weight   precast   composite   panel   at   exterior,   MDF   panels   at   interior,   and   low-E   dual glass   in-between.   It   will   limit   the   sun   lights   during   day   time   and   minimize   heat   transmittance   to   the   interior space.    Furthermore,    exterior    walls    are    transformed    by    its    functional    requirement    for    the    use    of    rooms providing   balconies   and   glass   openings,   and   air   ventilation   openings   at   building   core.   Thus,   the   “Cube”   is connected   to   another   cube   (Cube   Annex).   This   is   a   transitional   form   to   link   the   bridge   podium   (existing   building design   form)   to   the   main   ‘Cube’.      This   linkage   not   only   amplifies   the   dynamic   form   of   the   Cube,   but   maintains the existing building design in harmony with the new icon as well.
We   believe   not   in   a   dramatic   way   but   practical   that   the   simple   form   of   the   cube   will   represent   the   Science   Park   to be   the   new   icon   especially   for   it   transforms   into   the   developed   shape   to   function   as   mixed-use   office   tower   so   as for the ideas of iconic and sustainable building for Hong Kong Science Park.
