The Temple House
Located in the heart of Chengdu – one of China’s key centres of finance and commerce – is The Temple House, a historically-rich hotel that opened in July 2015. Designed by Make Architects for Swire Hotels, The Temple House is the third hotel in Swire’s flourishing House Collective portfolio, following The Upper House in Hong Kong and The Opposite House in Beijing.
The shell that houses the restaurant- Karaiskaki Stadium, which is built over the water, was a benchmark in the design proposal. The wave of the sea that existed in place is introduced in the design of the space in the form of an optically moving roof element. This element, which is the result of parametric design, dominates the environment and gives identity to the restaurant.
A former 4-plex later combined into a duplex, the project consisted in transforming this 1900’s property into a contemporary single-family home, with a small addition in the back. The existing two-storey building was half abandoned and in need of major renovations. After completely gutting the interior space, the structure was modified to remove all interior walls as well as the back wall.

Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim
The hotel at Brattøra redefines the classical atrium hotel typology to a new and strong identity. The rooms are arranged/organized in four highly rational structures all oriented towards the perfect view. The rotation transforms the atrium from an enclosed central space to a 3-dimensional star shaped lobby space.
