Xiaolongmen village hundred years of  "fu" word courtyard reborn / CCDI GW Design




The rural practice of “localism” is the exploration of the modernization of traditional dwellings and Show its own uniqueness in the eyes of development. It hopes to integrate residential buildings into the surrounding environment and draw materials from local practices.




At present, the development of rural areas has been diversified. The report of the 19th national congress of the CPC in 2017 put forward the strategy of rural revitalization. Artists and designers also went to the countryside to carry out in-depth field research, to intervene in the countryside with art and to drive the development with culture.




In recent years, xiaolongmen village, which has gradually become a "hollow village", has also carried out village planning and development. How to integrate the renovation of the old house with the local village style and how to save the disappearing rural culture become the turning point and starting point of this practice.

The project is located in Xiaolongmen Village, Qingshui Town, Mentougou District, Beijing Province. It's the westernmost village in Beijing. In the book "Qijia Sizhi" , first to see the "Xiaolongmen" village name. The average elevation of the village is 1300 meters. It's next to State Road 109. Villages and mountains are distributed along both sides of the road, and the mountains are densely forested, showing the four seasons of the village.

The Siheyuan of Beijing West were built by the mountains, Influenced by the mountainous terrain, two kinds of courtyard deformation were produced. The reformed fuzi courtyard is one of the forms.

| Original appearance




The former residential area of fuzi courtyard is 224m2, with a total of 10 houses. The prelude to entering the ancient house is the century-old word "fu" that comes into view at the end of the alley when walking in the hutong. It is recorded that this gate building has a history of more than 400 years and has been inherited and preserved after many vicissitudes.

The first courtyard after entering is an independent shed, which has been used as a utility room in recent years. The houses in second courtyard underwent a simple renovation in the 1980s, Made of gypsum board and ceramic tile, with steel doors and windows, Basically destroyed the lasting appeal of its original ancient house, with the temperament of the gate building that preserves also difficult confluence.



This renovation is also the epitome of blind urbanization development in rural areas,Therefore, how to inherit the local regional characteristics and cultural characteristics become the focus of our exploration in the transformation design.

| 设计逻辑及特点--重构焕新颜

| Design logic and features -- reconstruction and renewal




Based on the above logic and perception of architectural space and materials, and our practical understanding of customer groups, the design reconstructs the structure and functions of the whole courtyard. The overall layout reorganizes ten bedrooms into four bedrooms, a dining room and a multi-purpose room on the basis of the original building.

The original hut of the first courtyard was transformed into a multi-function room. And make use of the site elevation difference to dig out the cellar space under the north room, the bathroom and linen space under the worth room; The original second courtyard of north room and the east and west wing of the overall pattern is still retained, the bedroom of the south room was transformed into a full-length dining room, through which access was redirected to the spacious backyard.

| Space design -- Spatial sequence




The design respects its original sense of spatial sequence. Starting from the roadway, it enters the house from the gate to the yard. At the spatial turning point in the focus of different space materials, lighting and other techniques to strengthen the psychological feelings.

The placement of the multifunctional room becomes the preordering space and activation point of the whole quadrangle. It can be used as the buffer space after entering the house. And it can also be used as the common activity area, so that everyone can "gather" together to enjoy a pot of tea, appreciate a painting, watch a movie and drink a pot of wine.

Go up to the stairs, into the second courtyard, The north room and east and west wing a total of four bedrooms. The design transforms the building into the original brick and wood structure of the old house. The north room is slightly higher than the east and west wing. The courtyard is surrounded by a wooden trestle to form a circle of "HUI" corridor connecting the Spaces, and the center is decorated with local gravel and green plants , to separate the activities of people in this area, and lead to the restaurant and the common area in the backyard.

The interior space can be seen that the wooden beams of the primitive roof are used again as the load-bearing structure of the beams, all these ceiling wooden structure old house original demolition original timber reuse. And the walls use the rough texture finish. The space overall restores the ancient and simple temperament of the old house, with the intention of coruscating the good experience of the original characteristics of the space.

The restaurant is the main use space of people's public activities. In the design, dynamic line design and space construction are considered with people's behavior activities. The design considers the restaurant and the backyard as a whole, and changes the connected door into a folding door. When the door is fully opened, the restaurant and the backyard permeate each other, forming a spacious space for party activities.

The design and transformation of the old house have always been based on the principle of local spatial structure and material, so that the house can be better integrated into the overall style of the village.

The project completed and put into use by the end of 2019. In the current wave of homestay renovation, the renovation of the old house is more about the exploration of the simple life of the local villagers and the demand for the current quality of life.

A series of subsequent transformations of architectural communities are illustrated by the same transformation logic, different themes and design techniques, to meet the needs of different activity experiences in the countryside.
