Along the mountain road，passing through villages and hills,The road shows the outline of the village,Also guide strangers entering into the hometown of natives.To the end of the road,a white house emerges from the road, surrounded by mountains on all sides, and the mountain shape moves like a phoenix with open wings. And consequently Jiyoufang b&b got its name by disassembling Chinese word “Phoenix”.

As a“new villager”，our client treated this place as a resident for weekend leisure and gatherings with friends before, in the meanwhile they can escape from real life for a short time and stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city.it is an ideal place to have a good rest after climbing the mountain and having a drink.But the longer they enter the impetuous real world, the more they want to get close to the mountains and rivers here.Why not turn the native place into their own hometown?They can also invites more people to come to the mountains to “enjoy the domestic bliss, and have the joy of pastoral life”.Demolition and new construction project is put on the work schedule.

For us, the self-living house and the b&b are two different concepts for now. which endows the building with completely different attributes. How to satisfy the needs of the owners for self-living ，while meeting the needs of external business operations. How to balance the life state of different time with the unique space,This is not only the difference for open and private secret by self-living house and the b&b.It is also kinds of the thinking and pursuit of the interpersonal relationship of “dividing and combining”.

In order to deal with the relationship between the two above-mentioned ,We will combine the function and site to divide the main building into three white minimalist boxes,Constitute a relatively independent living unit,in the meanwhile add zest for these cubes,Three different relationships are set up with the corresponding environmental site,—embedded, floating, and connected.The design corresponding to the interior space is the basement, the cantilevered floor, and the sinking leisure area.The corridors between the boxes not only form a traffic space for shuttling，So that every room can directly reach the outdoors,but also because of the height difference between the boxes and the site,The corridor leads users from outside the site into the building inside like a “bridge”,The crisscrossed corridors make the people in them lost in the dreamlike feeling of different levels and spaces.The walls on both sides of the corridor lock the distant mountain scenery and the sky above, giving people the illusion of being among the canyons.

These “bridges” combine outdoor stairs and roof terraces of functional rooms, boxes and platform is independent, transitional, and can also be connected and gathered together.The state of life of “dividing and combining”,Responds through the integration of the sense of distance between the boxes and the service space.

With the advance and retreat changes between the boxes, people can see mountain views in different directions indoors.On the roof terrace, the overlooked mountains are also like leaning over to look at us. The dialogue between architecture and nature is now whispering in the valley,” how charming and beautiful for the green mountains I look like , and the same as mountains look at me .”
