A project that involved seismic reinforcement and conversion of a concrete block apple orchard monitoring outhouse built by the client’s father-in-law into a common space with multiple functions such as after-school, elder care, and a consumers’ Co-op station.

现有的建筑骨架和饰面已经浸透了整个家庭的记忆,被有意留作 “痕迹”,没有任何修改。新的元素,如抗震加固被添加到它们上面,以创造一个新旧材料的新风景。

The existing building skeleton and finishes that had been soaked in the memories of the whole family were intentionally left as “traces” without any modification. New elements such as seismic reinforcements were added on top of them to create a new scenery with the old and new materials.


The RC, steel frame, roofing underlay, and fittings were constructed by local contractors while the interior furniture and painting were done by architecture students with the clients in the spirit of self-building.


Furthermore, the client and students are currently planning to self-building the surrounding landscape too.
