Papa’s Hostel Hostel by Wei He

Home > Winners > #44594


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Papa’s Hostel

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hostel

INSPIRATION:
The design team tries to explore the issues of the revitalization of China's rural residential buildings, such as the relationship between the overall style of the village and the personality of the architecture, the comparison between new and old in materials and structures, the contradictions between local customs and world recognition, the balance between the inheritance and the evolution of the traditions, etc.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project is located in Pingtian village, Sidu Township, Songyang County, Lishui city, Zhejiang Province. The original building was a ordinary rammed earth dwelling with two floors in civil structure, covering a total of 270 square meters. People generally call the place “Papa’s Home” since it belonged to the owner, the elderly Jiang Binlong. The goal of design is to renovate it into a place with new functions and spaces. We decided to pu tpapa’s home with a young face - transforming it into a youth hostel with international standard after discussions with the owners and the local government.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We plan to provide a public space for the village on the first floor in the original construction. The clapboards in the original construction, dividing space from one to many, have been demolished, which turns space back into a whole. It will bea common place for youngsters to social and play.Meanwhile,tourists and villagers also could have a rest here. As for the second floor of the construction, we intend to keep the original characteristics of the space, so the conventional method thatusing the fixed wall to divide the space is denied;several space elements with the concept of "rooms within rooms" are implanted into the original house. The actual function of “rooms within rooms" is the living units of Papa’s Hostel; each unit can accommodate 4-6 people.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Duration: 2014-2015 Location: Pingtian Village, Sidu Township, Songyang County, Lishui City, Zhejiang Province, China

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The original building was made of rammed earth while the newly added section uses wood, solar panels and LED lights to create space. We apply the traditional Chinese tenon and mortise structure to the indoor lightweight structures "rooms within room" whose skin is made of translucent multilayered 2cm-thick solar panels with random sized holes and paralleled arranged light to meet the texture of the skin. Under the indoor “rooms”, we put wheels to make it movable.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Design area: 280 square meters; two Floors; Total height: 7 meters

TAGS:
Renovation, Hostel, Preservation, Village

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We regard this design process as a possibility to revitalize Chinese village through renovate and re-functionalize old buildings. In the old building, with a reversible manner, we apply the reset and resurrection of function and space, which is also a symbiotic relationship with the new structure in the old building: the difference and contrast in materials, textures, transparency and mobility, etc.

CHALLENGE:
How to achieve the indoor light structure: the mobility and removability of "rooms within rooms", as well as the change of structure, construction, and facilities due to them. How to combine artificial light, natural light and solar panels together in order to complete the indoor functional lighting and atmosphere rendering.
