DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Dongziguan Affordable Housing

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Affordable Housing

INSPIRATION:
The project seeks to organize the form of the buildings in the vernacular style of a courtyard typology, a local traditional urban morphology. Architects firstly conducted an investigation to communicate with different families for their living habits, and then design the plan layout based on the information gained. The buildings are designed in a vernacular language with detailed considerations to the roof. The traditional dual-slope roof is developed into continuous slope roof asymmetrically.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design intention is dedicated to the preservation of the vernacular morphology of rural settlements and resists the current widely-criticized Chinese residential highrises. Also we fights for the best building quality within the very low budget and explores contemporary ways of representing local traditional architectural characteristics. This project opens the dialogue of how the architects can help build and improve the countryside with the support from the government.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Since moving in, the new residents have reported a high quality of life due to the new housing. The project brings an opportunity to regenerate the countryside besides providing quality affordable housing. Now different programs have been attracted to Dongziguan Village, inclusive of hotels and other recreational and commercial activities.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2014 and the construction finished in July 2016 in Dongziguan Village, Fuyang, Hangzhou,P.R.China.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design for construction drawings explores the best usage of the brick, steel and glass to ensure the best thermal and ventilation performance. The 24cm brick wall is equipped with waterproof coating and hollow glass and the solid wall varies at the place of stairs with staggered pattern. The roof cantilever out aesthetically reminds the vernacular architectural style in Hangzhou, functionally as part of the shelter considering Hangzhou has a raining season.

TAGS:
Rural construction, Residential unit, Rural settlement, Abstraction, Reconstitution, Residential House, Collective Living

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In the tide of rural construction, the residential environment of native people was barely concerned to. Neither traditional building nor city apartment is appropriate to the rural residence. In this project, we tried to discuss the position, attitude and values of architects in the rural construction led by the government, and researched the design strategy and its operability of rural residence, from the point of plan, function, space, form, and material.

CHALLENGE:
How to design and construct quality housing for relocalized farmers with a very low budget, while maintaining their original lifestyle of collective living is the major challenge. Taking the modern transformation of traditional language and the local expression of industrialization as design guidelines, architects use field work to seek the first-hand information. It is planned to reproduce the diversity of the traditional villages through the four basic units. Facade does not stick to the traditional residential symbols, but uses the modern design language to abstract the roof lines.
