Our Speciality

The EIGHT EFFECT was set up at the beginning of the 21st century. The practice has designed many buildings and its carrier started with the historical building refurbishment. Currently, the practice's design territories are expanded to planning, consultation, creative direction with collaborating with other disciplines, producing exhibitions and events and architectural design with the new technology, natural materials and traditional handcrafts. The EIGHT EFFECT enhances, directs the projects and achieves their goals with coordinating with other fields.

  When, age 5, I saw and was impressed the picture of the "Fallingwater" designed by the American well-known architect, F.L. Wright, on the front cover of the foreign book. Since then, the challenge of designing architectures and products became my lifetime work. I would like to involve the work which you and our society like and it will be a legacy for our next generation.
