Living on a spring nearby Daming lake

Buried with flowers C1C2 ancient architecture community reconstruction




"Baihuazhou C1C2 ancient architecture group" is located in baihuazhou historical and cultural district, jinan city, shandong province, only one step away from Daming lake, surrounded by numerous springs. It is the concentrated bearing area of "every spring, every family falls to the poplar" of traditional residential houses in jinan.

“哪儿的水能比济南?有泉——到处是泉——有河,有湖,这是由形式上分。不管是泉是河是湖,全是那么清,全是那么甜,哎呀,济南是‘自然’的Sweet heart吧?”

—— 老舍 · 《一些印象 (续四) 》


"Where is water better than Jinan? There are springs-springs everywhere-there are rivers and lakes, which is divided by form. Whether it is a spring or a river or a lake, it is all so clear, it is all so sweet, oops, Is Jinan the 'natural' Sweet heart? "

—— Lao She · "Some Impressions (Continued 4)"





At the beginning of the project, the designer extended the indoor and outdoor integrated design on the relationship between the local streets and waters and the residential city through field presence and investigation.


Headed by "Spring", supplemented by "Lotus" and " Curved water", and based on "Elegant" as the design element, the old Jinan's local texture is integrated into the project, with space, rhythm and design inspiration as the tradition. Jinan folk house adds a place to stay, remember and imagine.




The original building community is the "Baihuazhou Folk Custom Exhibition Hall". Due to historical reasons, the original building complex has been abandoned for a long time. Some courtyards are overgrown with weeds. The interior paint surface is mottled and shed. Hidden conditions such as the original lack, together form the necessary focus of the renovation project.




How to preserve the historical form of the original building to the maximum extent and enrich the interior space experience has become a key and difficult point in this space design. The transformed ancient building community is open to the outside world as a representative boutique hotel in the old city center of Jinan. It has 6 courtyards and 15 rooms.


室外空间 Outdoor space




Because the original function of the project is a part of the ancient scenic spots in the Baihuazhou area, the lighting and landscape at the site are set as "tourist attractions", which is inconsistent with the hotel's temperament. The design professions integrate building facades, landscape water systems, flood lighting , Injecting a privacy and style atmosphere that matches the positioning of the hotel.



Formal entrance/Sensing the Facades of the Wenshan Alley with Integrated Lighting




Because some ancient buildings have protection restrictions, in order to preserve the original historical features of the building, the principle of "repairing the old as old" is upheld. To make it more naturally integrate with the surrounding environment, the designer maintains and repairs the building's appearance:



Common area corridor/Adaptation relationship between facade lighting and low-level lighting



Sensation of "Xingtianwai" courtyard façade/Lighting continues landscape styling continues low visual focus




Sensation of the facade of "Yu Shanqian" courtyard

It was originally the Sanxitang, a private residence of officials in the late Qing Dynasty, and the key façade structure was constructed through lighting.






On the west side of the original building complex, there is a spring eye name "Houde Spring".In order to restore the "Quancheng" style, the whole scene was combined with the surrounding old city waters. Houde Spring Water was introduced from the west side to enter the hospital, and the whole water area was sorted out according to the encirclement of 6 yards to sort out the overall flow of the whole court.And the "spring water" element has really become the protagonist of the local landscape.


The landscape waters echo the residential texture of "every house with spring" in the Baihuazhou area. The direction of the water flow is slowly admitted to the hospital from Houde Spring on the west side, and six courtyards are successively connected in series. The scattered distribution of ancient built communities are all connected in series by the water system.

At the same time, the on-site spring well, the old stone slab sculpture floor, the on-site arbor, etc. were all protected in situ, as a node interspersed in the landscape.



The water surface lighting of the "Xingtianwai" courtyard contrasted with the original plant on the site, and the fallen trees and artificial water bodies formed a small natural garden.



On the second floor of the "Xingtianwai" courtyard, the peaceful skyline of the old town is overlooked.

室内空间  interior space






In the design of public space, we have adopted a transparent line of sight of indoor and outdoor space for the senses, had little to ceiling windows or windows open, so that both sides feel the building rendered transparent to better interact with the outdoor landscape.


Interior design adhering to the principles of ancient sequence of reduction, reduction in building wooden beams outside their own beauty, as far as possible the original building by wooden beams Brush, reduction, wax brush simple way to protect the wood, increasing the space with warm wood texture Dearness

Open / private facade in public areas




Because the traditional architectural space is different, in the interior design, according to the different characteristics of each room, we have designed a total of 5 basic room types. On the basis of keeping the original building simple and pure, the use of soft-mounted chandeliers, ornaments, hanging pictures , The intention is to introduce the cultural scene of “lotus leaves flourishing” by Daming Lake into the indoor space, and echo the outdoor landscape.

"Kouguyou" Loft Suite/ The first floor of the loft becomes a suite public space




The space pattern of traditional ancient buildings is limited, and the space of all rooms in each space is above 30㎡. The design advocates the modern living function under the charm of ancient buildings. Each room exists as a separate guest room. The setting of the bubble pool is not only one of the functional components of the bathroom, it is also a mapping of human activities adjacent to the spring water.

项目难点分析 Project Difficulty Analysis




Due to the fact that the building complex is located in the center of Jinan's old city, the hidden drawings in the early stage of the reconstruction are missing, and the municipal pipeline drawings are lacking, which encountered considerable difficulties and obstacles during the construction process. The design team adjusted in time according to the on-site problems, and each professional cooperated to check the on-site pipelines, and issued a response plan based on the on-site conditions.




The original buildings are of different ages. Some of them started in the Ming and Qing dynasties. Most of them were built after the founding of the People's Republic of China. Therefore, the partition wall is filled with thermal insulation material, and the interior plane of the room is thickened again according to the finished surface, and the floor area of the bathroom is additionally heated. The original single-story old wooden door is used as the outer decoration, and the inner side is added with a door leaf to enhance the thermal insulation of the room and the stability of the door.




All buildings retain the original window size, poor lighting in the old model room, the room looks dark, and some ancient buildings cannot be demolished and modified in large areas. After discussion, it was decided to change the mahogany hue on the structural beam after the original repair, and repeated the color correction on site, to a lighter color, which visually increased the brightness of the space and the sense of love. At the same time, the styles of doors and windows were re-modified to make the colors of the doors and windows in each courtyard unified, and try to balance the relationship between the building and the interior.
