DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Beijing Artists' House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Interior

INSPIRATION:
In China, After 30 years of rapid industrialization, can architecture of domesticity benefits from the industrial know how and supply chain? Regardless historical references, if we could abandon the nostalgia and face the status quo, can a new possibility be explored where China's industrial capabilities are not a hidden brutal trauma but a force of progress that could distribute welfare throughout our society? Could a new aesthetic of residential architecture emerge from this condition? Could these also be a endogenous architecture prototype of sustainable future regeneration strategy for the massive out-dated concrete blocks rather than simply built and demolish method as in the past 30 years of Chinese urbanization?

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
After years of rapid Chinese industrialization, this project reflects the fundamental social changes and industrial development of a country that calls for a modern take on its architecture. In this sense the house responds to a move away from traditional references and towards an industrial reality. It aims to explore China's industrial capabilities, not as a hidden brutal trauma but rather a force of progress that could distribute welfare throughout society. Moving away from long-gone imperial past and the relatively recent socialist yesterday, SpActrum Studio's project abundances both nostalgic Chinese historical symbol and chinesque response to the past, focuses on regeneration strategy and sustainable future housing under an industrial background. By recognizing the complexity of the artist's living-working pattern, which combines editing and reading endlessly with any other activities around him in a relatively small occupation(one couple with occasional a few visiting guests), the definition of bedroom, bathroom, living room have been dispelled by spaces merging into each other, which building up its subtle differentiation by spatial attributes.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Endogenous Architecture performs as a lifestyle organizer by analyzing the behavior patterns of the house owners. Declining any inherited labeling of the domestic spaces, It redefines the residential programme and establishes the poetic living space beyond the routine. The existing partition walls were removed every floor. They used to be the elements between spaces function as dedicated spaces for certain events, bedroom for sleeping, study for working, lounge for seating. In the new creates spaces, connection is seeking between each space. By recognizing the complexity of domesticity, it declines any arbitrary functional divisions. The new elements and components in the space usually carries the separation and connection attributes at the same time.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:

CHALLENGE:
To understand the conditions the industry provides and understand the clients living pattern, and finding architectural language as bridges to connect them is the design challenge. To organize to manufacture for such small quantity and high quality in a massive industry optimized only for mass production is highly difficult. To supervise the builders to regardless what they normally do and follows the drawing also almost a impossible mission.
