The word QUAD as a metaphor
The word Quad House has the meaning of a private place surrounded by surroundings and centripetal, as well as a square land surrounded by houses in east & west, south & north. In addition to SiHe Pinyin, Nolan Chao chose the word “QUAD”, which corresponds to the spatial layout of the building from the ring surroundings and the number four. The architectural design metaphors convincing, accurate and elegant.

The Restoration
Compared with architects, Nolan is specialized in the archaeology and he played a role of a restorer in this project. Nolan carefully excavated and organized the scene, and fill in the “loopholes” of space with modern materials and processes in an imperceptible way.

Originality & Humbleness
In the design process, he has been trying to keep silent, control the harmony of the overall environment and atmosphere, and do not over-design and expression. He removed and cleaned these covers and decorations, washed the building to complete what he called“taking off”process, to restore their original appearance.
