LIVING IN HARMONY WITH THE OLD AND THE NEW

THIS OLD VILLAGE IN THE SHANDONG PROVINCE OF CHINA GETS A MUCH-NEEDED MAKEOVER

An adaptation project for a 100-year-old village aimed to revive the village into a new generation. While some modern touches were added, a lot of the original characteristics of the village were maintained such as the trees in the property. These trees were used as anchor points around which the many facilities will be built.

The theme of the design is dubbed the Persimmon Garden. A color palette consisting of red was mainly used for the interiors of the remodeled houses. With waterscapes, views of the majestic mountains, and lush trees, this rustic garden village creates a space of culture, serenity, and peace.

It was the desire of the designer team to remodel the dwelling into a rustic village garden in north China. It should be rustic, rather than wild; a garden, instead of a courtyard. It should also be a design work with certain literati elements. The trees, mountain, and stone found when reading the place have therefore become particularly important elements to be appreciated in a new space and to be employed to design garden landscapes.
