Appreciation towards odd for providing the following description:



In Beijing, the traditional courtyard houses dominate the neighborhoods inside the second road. In most cases, the courtyard house is shared by several families with private kitchens and bathrooms squeezed in the courtyard, leaving narrow paths in-between. The unguided self-extensions not only radically reduce the life quality of the resident but also increase the challenges of conserving these valuable architectures. Yet although the facades are ruins, the charm of the traditional wood and brick structure can never be replicated by the modern architectures.

The different functions of modern life are integrated in the cubic volume, which vertically divide and organize the limiting space. By inserting such volume odd manage to maximum the functionalities of the house without destroying the sense of form of the original space. The fine conservation of the brick wall and wood structure shows the respect to the history. The project shows the unique artistic charm of the old house while meets the needs of modern daily life.
