Combined Architects:Under the mountains

Driving northeast from central district of Beijing, arrive at the project site of Wanzhuangzi Village, the site is surrounded by mountains on three sides, with winding paths and sounds of livestock echoing throughout. The project site is located at southeastern corner of the village, adjacent to the sea of Peach Blossom.




The main house in the northern part of the project site, along with the over 200-year-old persimmon tree has been preserved. During the renovation, an attempt was made to create architecture that harmonizes with rural environment, weaving memories and stories of village life.

融入村落 Integration with village


The entrance gate has been relocated to east side, guiding people into courtyard through the peach orchard. The open platform at the entrance provide settle for guests and villagers, allowing building blend into the scenes of village life. In terms of site layout, we have interconnected the new and old portion of buildings, creating dramatic transitions between spaces. The roof of the new portion tilts towards the inner courtyard to echo the style of the old building and village. By utilizing the height difference of sloping roof, mezzanine spaces have been created, providing diverse sleeping areas and capturing the surrounding views within the courtyard and the building.

Inside, two twin courtyards of different scales have been designed within. The two courtyards, with their different sizes, locations, and enclosures, create distinct atmospheres for various activities. The low spatial volume that connects the new and old acts as a terrace, allowing people to experience the expansive mountain scenery and the village landscape.

传统与现代—向村落学习 Traditional and modernity – Drawing inspiration from collective memories of the village

设计师在勘察本村风貌时,发现村落生长过程中由于物质相对匮乏激发的建筑智慧 ——利用现成的建材如红砖、瓦片、混凝土空心砌块、预制混凝土条板堆叠在一起呈现出一种粗旷、自由生长的建筑趣味。于是,建筑师借鉴了混砌的作法——运用改造时回收的红砖、毛石与现代材料进行搭配混砌。

During field research of the village’s architectural style, architect discovered the architectural ingenuity born out of the lack of material during the village’s growth – the use of readapted materials such as red bricks, tiles, hollow concrete blocks, and precast concrete slabs stacked together to create a rough and freely growing architectural charm. As a result, The architect drew inspiration from the practice of mixed masonry – using recycled red bricks, rubble, and modern materials during the renovation to mix and build.

The concrete casting formwork incorporates a rural household item “straw matting” as a template, leaving an imprint on its surface, infusing the concrete with a sense of warmth associated with rural living. This interpretation captures the rustic and rough texture unique to the countryside.
