Studio

Eureka is a Hong Kong based architectural design studio established in 2011 aiming to create a multi-layered experience.  Believe in script-writing and the idea of 'polytropic' (with more than one author), the studio explores the existed typology and spaces through collecting, changing, redefining and creating situations, and hence the design.  
 
At the same time, we believe in project implementation, and oversee our design from the beginning to completion.   

Projects vary from small installations to interiors, cycling parks, private houses, future planning of a school campus, a winery and a Buddhist park.

WE ARE PLEASANT DREAMERS

Scale does not matter. We dream, and at the same time we care about the process of materializing our dreams.

For all projects, we want our involvements to inject inspirations, our designs to create visions and our deliveries to give a sense of delight to end-users.

We explore the physical and latent qualities of sites, and re-narrate, and respond with sensitive and often playful ideas to add new dimensions to the context and experience for the users. We work closely with the client and end users to fully explore beyond the design brief perimeters.

WE BELIEVE IN FLEXIBILITY AND COLLABORATIONS

We like to collaborate with like-minded people.  With our members' previous exposures in Europe and China, the studio has experiences and is resourceful in collaborating with companies abroad or cross-discipline, be it graphic, landscape, product, branding and marketing, creating the necessary platform that best suits the project.

AND WE CONTINOUSLY LEARN AND REFLECT…

Our commitment to critical thinking is also reflected by Annette’s continuous academic involvement including teaching and participation in international symposium.  We enjoy drawing out and gather the less observed moments that surround us, as we believe “Eureka”-the enlightened moments- comes from our full engagement in everyday’s life.
