Project Brief

Named after the laurel planted 30 years ago, the Laurel Villa’s responsibility to create promising future has become the premise for the design plan.

Project Innovation/Need

The design skills that apply trimming and stacking presents the genuine charms of the architecture. Decorated around the façade of building, the shimmering halo belts distinguishing the textures of wooden finish from rocks advocate the history and mission moving forward without hesitation.

Design Challenge

The qualities of construction materials define the characteristics of the space. At the reception hall, the cement bricks and glass curtains obscure the visual discrepancies between the indoor and outdoor area. The design of glass curtains brings greenery landscapes to household environment. Ornamented at the balcony, the bathtub and plaint mix accordantly the physical functions with mental vitalities. The applications of materials minimizing secondary processing procedures have accomplished the ambition reducing wastes and protecting nature.


The plantings, old trees, and outdoor seats display the elegant and tranquil atmosphere. The hall furnished with diacrete and the staircase handrails decorated with black steels manifest elegant and graceful idiosyncrasy. The rooms adorned with concrete bricks and wood works displaying plain colors make tourists feel relieved and pleasant.
