DAGA Architects: The ancient city of Qianzhou on the bank of the Wanrong River has a long history and is known as the first of the four ancient towns in Xiangxi. Today, the ancient city of Qianzhou is not only a cultural window of Xiangxi Prefecture, but also a gathering place for the entire intangible cultural heritage of Xiangxi, with 24 national intangible cultural heritages gathered here. Tiangongju in the ancient city of Qianzhou was originally a place for local carpentry inheritance and practice. It was dedicated to Tiangong Luban. It was an abandoned house before the renovation.




At the invitation of Beijing Capital Group and Xiangxi Prefecture Government, DAGA Architects carried out the renovation design, repair construction, and soft decoration exhibition of Tiangongju. The original ruined building was renovated, implanted with vigorous modern design symbols, and finally transformed into an exhibition space that retains the characteristics of the traditional bucket-type wooden structure and also has innovative significance.

The original building is a bucket-type wooden structure, which has been in disrepair for a long time, the ground is overgrown with weeds, and most of the window frames have been deformed. However, the original architectural style is still maintained: wooden walls, wooden floors, bluestone slabs, and tiled roofs, reflecting the strong local characteristics of ethnic architecture. Our renovation design and repair construction strictly abide by the principle of repairing the old as before, keeping the traces of the original history to the greatest extent; but at the same time, we hope to reflect the times and functionality more. For this reason, we continued the red lantern, the only bright element in the venue, and planted a red glass box in it.

Red has profound meaning in Eastern culture. It represents peace, joy, prosperity, health, warmth, and prosperity. For the Chinese, red is the “national color”, but also a cultural totem and spiritual refuge of the Chinese. The addition of the red glass box also represents inheritance and innovation, the coexistence of new and old, and natural integration. It is decorated with red transparent glass boxes and placed in the original building, which breaks the closed barrier and brings more possibilities to spaces with different attributes.

The building at the end of the courtyard was severely damaged, the door panels and mezzanine railings are no longer there, and the rammed earth brick walls have collapsed due to rain. To preserve the authentic elements and historical features of the historical building, we searched for local masters familiar with traditional craftsmanship to carefully restore the building and transform it into a restaurant and guest room.
