OriginThe project is located in No. 69 Beishan St. Hangzhou, China. The area is about 30 meters both in length and width including three houses built on the site. One of the houses was built in 1930s with a 2-storied western-style, and it was identified as a historical building of Hangzhou. Sadly, it has been forgotten by the public due to its bad maintenance. In the middle of the last century, a famed writer, Mang Shi, had lived in the house, and named it ?Jiyi House.? It attracted a lot of scholars during his life.

Present conditionThe main house was structured during the era of Republic of China with post and pane, and several parts were added in 70?s of the last century. The two houses with one floor on the back was intentionally built 10 years later than the main house. There are several trees near the houses, and their ages are the same as the construction?s. Because of the house owners? wants, they built a few temporary rooms with simple and precarious structure, and the changes made the space look unorganized and suffocated. The three houses have been abandoned for many years and identified as dangerous buildings.

Think & askAs they are historical buildings located right side of the West Lake, the way we repair, project, and inherit the historical style of Beishan St. will determine the value of the buildings. We want the buildings to have more than just its own value by showing the beauty of humanity of the West Lake.

Ground Floor Plan

Between the entrance of the courtyard and the exterior road, there is an altitude difference of 3 meters with 5 tall trees on the path. The road to the entrance is paved with old slates and Chinese bricks, which were removed from the original houses.
