Tongling Recluse Historic Building Renovation by RSAA/ Büro Ziyu Zhuang

Home > Winners > #63613


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tongling Recluse

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Historic Building Renovation

INSPIRATION:
Taoist culture “the three begets all things of the world” gave birth to the combined form. The appearance responded to the local culture, sustainable ecological concept and the combination of new and old. The curves were partly brought in the plan so as to separate an alienated imaginary space from the original projection profile. Combined with the extensive imaginary space, an alternating spatial curved surface was formed. The interlaced spaces enriched the design.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Tongling Recluse is originally a damaged mixed style dwelling. For the layout, we added a span in the west as well as the south-north. The traditional folding roof and a streamline combined into one, reflecting Taoist culture “the three generates everything”. The previous walls shaped the main space, which now are interior partitions. We marked original old bricks and rebuild the wall with them after finishing the new foundation. Thus, we responded to the local culture and eco-sustainability.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Under the conditions of limited space and time, a suspension bridge is required to be built on the site as means of material transportation between the two adjacent roads. This will enable the achievement the three-dimensional geometry of the roof, whilst maintaining the traditional building elements and components of the whole building with the use of steel fabrication. Upon rebuilding the wall, the steel structure will be concealed with an external facade of tiles extracted from the original wall. (This method is common in the local maintenance of traditional buildings and the practice of saving brick materials.)

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Tongling recluse is located in Tongling city, Anhui province, China. It was built from late May of 2017 and finished in a period of 45 days, and then it began operating.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The area of the project is 160 square meters.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
There are 3 challenges to realize this project. First of all, the time for the construction is short, just 40 days. Secondly, the local manual technique is limited, which made some part of the design hard to achieve. Last but not least, the relationship between traditional culture and new culture is difficult to balance, since this is a renovation program. Accordingly, Tongling Recluse is not just a simple residential building, but an achievement combining new culture to the traditional one.

NAME:
RSAA/ Büro Ziyu Zhuang

PROFILE:
RSAA/ Büro Ziyu Zhuang was founded in 2010, in which Ziyu Zhuang works as the chief architect together with two directors Na Li and Zhengdong Qi, as well as around 20 architects from Europe, North America and China. Meanwhile, Ziyu Zhuang is a partner of the German RSAA design group which was founded in 1965, operating in Cologne and owning around 80 architects. Based in Beijing, Büro Ziyu Zhuang aims to use the connections from Germany and China to establish a new design vocabulary making use of the resources of both to create a new element of thought, a fusion of European and Chinese architecture. This will create a new and unique style which takes advantage of the two-way system, bringing Chinese influences to Europe, crafting a new line of thought that surpasses the constraints of each individual culture, and viceversa. Accordingly, RSAA has been widely recognized in the design of eco-city and sustainable architecture in recent years. Combined with the regional features and the contemporaneity of China, a series of works with contemporary spirit and traditional context have been accomplished. For instance, Tongling Recluse, Courtyard No.7 at The Drum Tower, Beijing Liubaiben Commercial Center Renovation, Five Seasons Jinling Hotel in Nanjing, Sino-Singapore Eco City, Tianjin Culture Center Urban Design, Jining Culture Center Urban Design and No.4 Middle School in Tianjin.
