Appreciations towards The Design Institute of Landscape and Architecture China Academy of Art for providing the following description:


With rapid urbanization in China today, the old homes of urban newcomers here, unlike individual houses abroad, have become the most unique residential units in history. It carries the rural life of the parents and must also embrace the families of the future generations who will travel between the city and their hometowns at each festival, just like migratory birds.

Grandpa’s daily life, the hometown of parents and relatives, and children’s Spring Festival celebrations reach a saturated yet conflicting mix at each Spring Festival. All these aspects are the nature of space that the homes of migratory birds need to explore. In the 12*10-meter base, the deep relationship between people as well as people and hometown changes to various spatial elements through the senses. The Rubik’s Cube-like staircase connects the round dining table on the first floor, the three-dimensional family room on the second floor, the sunny tea room on the third floor, and finally the semi-transparent large terrace. The outdoor scenery is accompanied by continuous and transparent public spaces. As you move, scenery changes and anyone who yells can be heard by others. Outside each window are old rice fields and distant mountains, with children chasing each step of the stairs. These pictures are the core concepts of design.

Ecological design still remains the major theme of rural buildings, and wood, stone, mud and grass are still raw materials for rural farmhouses. The traditional wooden roof frame enriches the architectural details, attracting swallows and sparrows; the texture coating of the outer wall mixed with straw and the base of local stone are still close to the paddy field in front of the house; the vegetable garden in the yard represents a lively life. Taking materials locally is the key to cost control, and the low cost makes ecological design universal.

A large family of three generations revolves in the courtyard under the eaves. You can see swallows flying and people returning. You can embrace spring as well. This is exactly the vitality of self-built houses in rural China.
