Grey space Architects ：The Yimeng Renjia No. 2 Courtyard Resort project is a renovation of a traditional brand hotel courtyard which has run for many years. The design explores the renovation strategy of the traditional courtyard space through preserving and renewing the architectural courtyard, utilizing local materials, and creating the atmosphere of light and shadow.
项目缘起 Project Origin
Mr. Zeng Fan, the famous painter and calligrapher, admired the hotel a lot after staying here, and named the hotel as “Yimeng Renjia”. That is how the Yimeng Renjia Hotel got its name. Yimeng Renjia Hotel is located at the foot of Guimengding Mountain in the Mengshan Tourist Resort, which is a typical northern courtyard hotel in the Mengshan Scenic Area. Due to disrepair over the years, the hotel facilities are gradually obsolete. Therefore, the no.2 courtyard was upgraded and transformed first.

▽庭院夜景 The courtyard at night
The current No. 2 courtyard were completed in 2002. The construction was made with local materials. Local bluestone was used as the foundation of the building wall, with blue bricks covering on the wall. And the surrounding walls were pebbles which scatter around in the valley. The entire courtyard possesses the characteristics of local dwellings and carries the memories of the Yimeng settlers for many years, which makes it a typical local traditional courtyard-style dwellings. At the beginning of the design, it was decided to conduct appropriate implantation and transformation on the basis of preserving the origin courtyard and the main structure of the house.

院落更新：空间重构 Courtyard Renewal: Space Reconstruction
The size of the courtyard is 15 meters from east to west, and 10 meters from north to south. The entrance and surrounding walls are in good condition with excellent local traditional characteristics. Therefore, they are preserved intactly so as to preserve the memory of the original courtyard’s artistic conception and atmosphere.

However, the seats, green plants, trees and pebble roads and other elements inside the courtyard are rather messy. After reorganizing above situation, the two trees of them are retained.

▽看向入口 The Look of the Entrance
Local bluestone slabs and pebbles are applied to build the ground of the courtyard, forming a path into the building in the manner of new paving. A tea pavilion is built on one side of the path, which forms a new spatial relationship with the trees and buildings in the yard, as a continuation of the indoor activity space.

▽茶亭 Tea Pavilion
A shallow pool is arranged near the building to isolate the room from the courtyard and the tea pavilion. In this way, a psychological level of privacy is constructed; looking from the tea pavilion to the building, the shadows of the trees on the wall are reflected on the water together, forming a unique spatial atmosphere.

建筑改造：并置体量 Architectural Reconstruction: Parallel Volume
The main house is a three-bay building facing south, with a public hall in the middle, and one guest room on the east and west sides. The room size is 3.88 meters from east to west, and the north-south depth is 6.84 meters. After the renovation, there must still be two guest rooms.
▽主房立面 Facade of the Main House
The room size of the original building is difficult to meet the current comfort needs for holiday. How to fundamentally solve the problem of too cramped space is the key to the building renovation. After repeated thinking and attempts, it was decided to reinforce the original building and a new parallel volume with a width of 2 meters is juxtaposed on its outside.

▽主房入口 The Entrance of Main House
Looking at the building from the courtyard, the added parallel volume is suspended on the water, indicating the existence of the main building behind it. The placement of the new parallel volume makes up for the cramped space of the three rooms of the original building. The middle part is open to the courtyard as a transitional gray space before entering the building. Besides, two guest rooms are added with valuable leisure space on both sides.

空间营造：静谧氛围 Interior creating: Tranquil Atmosphere
Staying in the courtyard, here is the world of one’s own. Indoor and outdoor spaces are combined into one, with the courtyard space as the extension of the indoor space, and the indoor space as the open shelter of the courtyard space.
▽公共厅局部&当地陶罐&客房局部 Part of Public Hall & Local Clay Pot & Part of Room
The interior design retains the three-bay form of the original building, with a public space in the middle and guest rooms at both ends. Thanks to the concise and clear space design, time seems to stop here, with the local clay pot art, the unpretentious furniture, and the old benches dotted in room. The light and shadow fluctuate on the wall, together with the greenery of the outer courtyard, which forms a quiet and rustic The atmosphere of the space.

Through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and carefully designed skylights, the indoor space echoes the outdoor sunlight, water surface, tree shadows, fences, and surrounding trees. The sunlight reflects into the room through the water surface under the trees, and directly shines through the sunlight and trees. The shadows are intertwined, like a performance of light and shadow, adding appropriate agility to the quiet and simple space.
