We believe that there is a fairy tale dream in the heart of every adult coming to Disney, so we intend to create a fairy tale space for adults, warm, pure, different from the outside world, so that people can temporarily forget where they are, which may be the fairy tale world for adults. The project consists of a three-storey building with two bungalows and a large courtyard, with a total construction area of 450㎡, which was originally used as residential buildings. The first floor is the living room, kitchen and one bedroom, each of the second and third floor has four rooms, one hall and two bathrooms. We retained the original layout of the first floor and converted the second and third floors into nine guest rooms with private bathrooms.

The first floor of the B&B is a reception hall. In the early stage of this project, we asked the construction team to demolish the decoration of the house to restore the original appearance of the space. The moment the original plasterboard ceiling was removed and the concrete floor of the building itself revealed, we decided that the top didn’t need any more decoration. The exposed concrete ceiling and warm wooden furniture give a mild, rustic and original flavor. The welcoming shoe rack at the entrance, the display shelf in the lounge area and the bar in the dining area are selected in a semi-permeable material, and the space becomes lighter as light passes through them. The assembly nodes for the shoe rack and display rack are designed and customized by the designer who is involved in everything from drawing to assembling, which not only helped the owner to reduce the cost, but also completed an interesting design practice.

The second floor and the third floor are guest rooms. We made different designs for different rooms, break the normal layout. There are high and low blocks in one room, and curved ceiling in another room, it is made to shelter the pipes that water and electricity pass through. On the other hand, it is also designed to infuse the architectural sense into the interior, creating a small world in each room. Entering different rooms is like entering a different fairy tale, and the protagonist of the story will be each guest who stays.

On the basis of reducing the cost, this project carried out an in-depth study on the use of materials and construction methods, and completed a low-cost construction practice. We prefer to create a plain space rather than a palatial space, so that people can let go of their sense of defense and naturally experience and feel it in the space.
