Appreciation towards Beijing Qingzhu Architecture Design Co.,LTD (contact: qingzhujianzhu@163.com) for providing the following description:


For the urban renewal of historical and cultural protection areas, Qingzhu Architecture never stopped exploring. After a long attempt to reconstruct the Hutong, we put forward the overall idea of “creating a scientific process” and began to apply it in new transformation projects. This is the home of a journalist. The two couples raised two innocent and lovely daughters, who need to be enrolled in the vicinity of the house. Together with the two elder people who have lived for a long time, they need to solve the problem of six people’s living space in a 50 m2 house.

Qingzhu Architecture has accumulated rich experience in solving practical problems with technology in the Hutong design. Therefore, the focus of this project became the space design. A two-story bedroom is designed taking advantage of the sloping roof. Since the main body of the building is a traditional quadrangle courtyard with the beam blocking the unified use of the second floor space, two stairs were designed at the east and west side of the first floor leading to the two bedrooms respectively. A small door was designed between the two bedrooms, which is convenient for the adults to take care of the children. To increase the fun of the house, they specially leave a space for the children to read and play outside the second floor, which also enriches the overall space.

The equipment includes electrical floor heating, electric toilet, central ventilation system and central air-conditioning etc. to provide excellent comfort to the space.
