L&A Design: Less than five kilometers away from Wuzhen, there is an ancient waterfront village — Henggang International Art Village, which has the original Jiangnan village texture and retain the simplicity of the countryside.

Since 2015, a series of activities such as L&A Design Star and L&A Rural Construction Camp have been successively carried out in Henggang village. L&A designers retained the original village texture and repaired the remnant dwellings in accordance with the principle of “mend so as to be the same as before”.

Duckling art center, the Edible Garden and the dining hall constitute the most beautiful core reception area of Henggang village. Since 2016, L&A Design has been rebuilding them one after another. In L&A Henggang Rural Construction & Design Training Camp 2019, designers introduced the concept of “art intervention in the countryside “and improved the design of the core reception area again.



小鸭艺术中心改造与新建 Renovation and reconstruction of Duckling Art Center


Duckling Art Center opened in July 2017. Traces of the building’s past have not been completely erased. The roof was built with local green tiles and the texture of the walls was designed in retro style. Local materials are abundant in Henggang Village. The architects especially love them and they believe the rough surfaces of these materials are more intimate.

Duckling Art Center used to be a shabby and deserted farm, with gray foam panels and messy electrical wirings all over the floor. Moreover, the cement tiles on the roof always fell off on windy days.

The renovated Duckling Art Center is made of country architects’ favorite red bricks and painted in white to be more unified with the interior decoration. The roof frame made of native timber makes the whole space appear lighter. A new loft is built on it, which expands the limited office space, and increases the aesthetic and artistic sense of the building.

The core mission of Duckling Art Center reconstruction was not to preserve the characteristics of local dwellings. The renovated space also serves as a bridge to connect neighborhood relations.

Since 2016, L&A Rural Construction & Design Training Camp has welcomed four teams of young designers. They were touched by the rustic atmosphere of the village, and decided to incorporate these qualities into their design. In this way, everyone who comes to Henggang Village can experience its strong historical imprint and recall the happy memories of their childhood.



横港村艺术装置设计 Art Installation Design in Henggang Village


The Art Installation Design aims to make the site more interesting. At the very beginning, designers investigated the local sauce duck’s history. This study inspired them to design a duckling IP. A cute duck butt was designed to smash into the wall and contained the implication of “breaking through the tradition” This interesting scene makes people curious about the indoor area.

The interior wall painting shows the duckling rushing into the art center with half of its body stuck outside. The picture is frozen in the expression of the duckling’s struggle.

The Lawn is covered with cement pedals in the shape of duck’s feet, like the footprints of a group of ducklings. Inspired by native plants, designers printed veins of leaves on these slabs. The initials of design team members were also engraved onto it.

To make the space more interesting, designers painted ducklings on the wall. At the crossing of the post and the dwellings, they designed an art installation of ducklings come home with their mother, which not only rendered the hospitable atmosphere of the homestay, echoed the theme of “coming home”, but also played the guiding role for the residents.

Using concrete, steel and embalmed wood, the designers created a playful image of a duckling plunging into the water with its feet turned upside down. The art installation also serves as a warning sign, highlighted by the bright yellow and orange hues.

森林餐厅和可食花园 The Forest Restaurant and the Edible Garden


The Edible Garden next to Duckling Art Center has always attracted the attention of Henggang Villagers. It occupies an important position in the village and has an excellent green ecosystem, which was discovered and preserved by the designers.

森林餐厅| The Forest Restaurant


The design of the Edible Garden includes two parts: the restaurant’s interior decoration and the garden. Following the philosophy of protecting nature and respecting the garden’s original green ecosystem, the interior was decorated with forest elements. The original wooden structure and lighting layout of the canteen have also been designed and improved.

Artistic space can arouse people’s imagination and interest. Inspired by the local culture and the surrounding environment, the design team painted the façade of the restaurant in artistic ways. Combining the IP image of Henggang, designers created a mascot named“Ah Duck”for the Edible Garden and bring pleasure to visitors through the interactive art installation.

可食花园| The Edible Garden


The team planned to create an artistic and memorable landmark. Symbolically circle compositions were applied into the design. The planting area is divided into circular shapes and the planting types are optimized, in order to be edible, observable, audible and playable.

The soft furnishings in the garden are made of local trinkets. Designers hope that the edible garden can maintain a healthy ecosystem and record the old days of the village. It will become a work of art that can create a pleasant lifestyle such as raising plants with sunshine and reading poems with raindrops.
