Architect Michael Hsu's Burnet Road office is an all-white building with a white-on-white light-up sign featuring his Chinese seal. Savvy and playful, Hsu's architectural projects for his clients are cooly sensual in equal measure. For the second year, our readers have alighted on this jewel of Hsu's: The yellow-glazed tilework, the communal tables (so large as to be surprisingly intimate), and hydraulic hangar door are the architectural/design details that make our readers swoon, er, sway, over and over.
