Describe the brief from the client
Oriental Humanism vs Modern Contemporary: Win Sing architects comes from Taiwan. They are renowned for their fine craftsmanship and designs that combine advance architectural technologies and oriental gracefulness. The name itself — Win Sing (Heart of scholars) originates from concepts of traditional Chinese humanities that scholars, sincere by nature, dedicate themselves in contribution to society.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Making a corporate profile that would let people understand Win Sin’s background at their first sight.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The idea: Bamboo
Famous Chinese poet Su Dong-Po said, “Rather be meatless in the meals than living without bamboos”. In oriental architectures, bamboo is the icon of culture. Each of the 6 laser-cut 5mm bamboo sheets represents a Win Sing vision. They form an ancient Chinese garden when stacked together, signifying a comprehensive Win Sing. We also adapt the ancient Chinese method of bookbinding, enclosing as much oriental characteristics as possible in the contemporary design. People will be infused with the feel of oriental culture at the first glance of the corporate profile, till the end of the last page.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
From the very first glance till the last page, the bamboo-crafted Chinese garden left people with a deep impression of the oriental Win Sing.
