月介空间 | 中山一座90年代旧宅改造
The project is located in Zhongshan, the original building was built by early domestic developers who did not have much experience in real estate development in 1990s, so that a batch of constructions were built with poor design quality and obvious homogenization. The design aims to reinterpret the original building with intention to rebirth the old house.
The homeowner is a family of three generations. The difficulty of this case is how to reconstruct the house that has been abandoned for nearly 30 years into a new space to adapt modern life. The original pattern of building is relatively enclosing with inner dimly light, which not for modern lifestyle. We appreciate to have administrative levels and elastic space.
Architectural Design – The fa?ade design of the building simplifies the complex sculting of the original building by reorganizing the logical connection between the building’s fa?ade and the use of planar space. Dimension is the primary theme of our fa?ade design. It bases on a dark grey wall with light grey blocks interspersed to form a unique entrance, emphasizing the scale of entrance. The white building forms a lateral volume through the enclosure with the wall visually. Yellow blocks are embeded to the building forming a vivid three-dimensional composition.
The design is not completely obliterated for the old buildings, the commonality of this community and architecture would to be preserved, retaining the only sense of belonging. The design element is the bridge to connect the past and the future, while what we choose is window. the windows of the old building were generalized into three categories, namely round windows, arched windows, and square windows.
Retainment—-the three round windows in the old building were preserved as symbolic significance, and as memories of the community and old buildings;
? 保留-社区记忆 Retention – community memory
Regeneration—-arch window is as a new symbol of the new building, re-use each space to penetrate indoors and outdoors;
Creation—-Square window creates a simple landscape space for the extension of outdoor leisure space.
Landscape space – The street where the building is located is relatively noisy, the building is built around the wall as well as is enclosed a private world. There is a courtyard inside the wall, which is cozy and accommodates all the internal space and communication space for life necessity. The designer expects to break the division between the interior and the exterior of the building and connect the interior with the courtyard. Activities extend from indoor to outdoor, creating a continuous flow of space experience both of them. A new room was built on the third floor on the grand terrace, sharing a landscaped terrace between two rooms. The landscaped terrace is not completely opened, but a complete frame is formed using concrete, giving a private feeling while framing the exterior view.

Interior layout -the reuse of the original building’s own potential. On the basis of not changing the original building structure, the building is partially built and reorganized, the interior space of the building is reorganized and integrated to form a more holistic and concise building space, it creates a vibrant mobile space that provides more opportunities for residents to communicate and interact in public spaces by opening unnecessary pastitions inside. Redirecting the light to create a bright space interwoven with natural light and artificial light for a comfortable living atmosphere.
The first-floor living room of the original building is relatively narrow. the design connects the garage and the living room to form a transparent hall.
The main bedrooms are two suites on the second floor, which are designed to connect the two rooms. One of them transforms a study. The master bedroom and the study are separated by a translucent sliding screen door to form a flexible and variable spatial form.
