Papa’s Hostel Hostel

The project is located in Pingtian village, China. 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
