This is a course design of a residence house. The building located in a small space of 6.2mx19.6m. The objective is require students design affluent space in a limited one. The site selection is an ancient city named Suzhou.
Suzhou is an ancient city of civilization with more than 2000 years history. It is well known for its landscaping style buildings, like The Humble Administrative Garden, The Lion Grove Garden, and The Youyuan Garden. The density of Suzhou population multiplies during recent years, we choose Pingjiang district as our site because it has the largest population density in the center of the city. Under present social situation, to look for a modern residence is one of the most difficulties in this research project. Let alone it has to be designed according to local context.
Different from ancient way of design stairs straight up and down, I designed it a roaming style so that family life seems to be more relax and leisure.
Dividing the building into different parts can lead to many kinds of effects of sunshine. The more it was divided, the more sunshine can pour in.
