Residential House Project
A housing focused on external environment
My work does not focus on units of housing, but the its connection with external environment, so called as “ting” in Chinese, which makes a community. However, it is not neglectable that residents are so adaptable to different sizes of space, ranging from a tiny little space to a huge luxury house. Moreover, no matter how diversely designed an apartment could be, it still could not satisfy each resident’s taste.
Therefore, I think architects should leave the chance to residents themselves to design each individual unit. Generally, each unit of a flat or a house is considered to be just the same as any other normal commercial product. I hope they could change the product according to their particular needs. From this point of view, It is a product designed by both the architect and all the residents. Therefore, our job is to organize these units, to balance their benefit and to manage the sharing space.
