Light, light, very light.
A wind lightly passes,
And goes, ever light.
And I don’t know what I think
Nor do I want to.
——《The keeper of sheep》No.13
Once you arrive Dali, China, all you can feel is the vigorous sunlight and the crisp air. Its circulating air makes everywhere a cool place wherever it has shade.
This project is located at the corner of the village, surrounded by a vast field from the mother earth. Taking the boundless mountain and sky as a background, this place is absolutely stunning. When we are inside the building, all we can think of is how to literally "project" this "view" into the heart.
The residents around the area cherish the old as much as the new, that is why their exterior appearance are so rich in their differences. All we can do is to simple form to blend in.
The base of this project was originally a single floor flat with a garden which let you consume the sunlight, the wind and the rain for free; its light green tiles recorded the beauty norms of the country side at that time, and we try our best to preserve all these. The new flat was on top of the old flat; new and old; to indulge and to restrain; consciously and unconsciously; all were placed vertically and easy to distinguish.
Location: West Huanhai Road, Xiajiyi village, Dali, Yunnan, China
