Shangxi Dragon Gardon is the former residence of Mr.Ba Jin’s grandfather Mr.Li Zhuxi.Reconstructed by the protective demolition in the ancient traditional building block of Chengdu Wenshuyuan.It’s a typical western Sichuan,the three-story courtyard of the bucket-type wooden structure,the north and south to the five open,the west side of the four open,the east side of a pavilion to connect the corridor ,divided into the front ,middle and back three
courtyards.Handed pure copper handle which covered dragon pattern LOGO and push the door.Although there is no magnificent scene,it’s full of peace like the jasper home.Numerous Ginkgo biloba and a centennial camphor treeplanted in the yard.Witness the season changes.Without the noise of the society,like the other world.However,it’s similar to the most ancient buildings,the complicated decoration and the traditional wooden doors and windows make the room dim and sound,depressing and gloomy.After charging the Dragon Garden,the rethinking focus is how to carry out the protective transformation.Designed to ensure the ancient building details can be shown and adapt to the needs of modern living.A large part of ancient buildings follows the common idea of renovation,but after careful consideration. We decide to explore the future possibilities.Maybe we can find the similar block between traditional and modern,local and international.The essence of Chinese culture is not cheap symbol college,but the abstract expression.This is also the appeal of modernist aesthetics.Following this notion,we demolish the original building ceilings.The simple structural logic of the western Sichuan area and the texture of the gray tile are illuminated, while the wall of the near-person scale hides the original cumbersome details with the wooden frame and the hard cover.It does not destroy the main structure of the ancient building,but also presents a harmonious and cozy texture.Meanwhile,designed to make guests appreciate the light and shadow floating in the yard,the original wooden doors and windows facing the inner courtyard are demolished,and the aluminum-wood composite doors and windows with good soundproofing and lighting are replaced.Light that overflows the room when entering the night,which makes the yard cozy.The owner spared no expense to use the corridors and the ground as a pipeline channel, installed air-conditioning, whole-floor heating, instant central hot water circulation system, intelligent lighting control system, Duravit smart toilet, Hansgrohe rain shower The high-end bathroom, such as the Kohler gold-plated faucet, allows guests to enjoy the facilities of a modern five-star hotel while they arein a traditional courtyard.
In order to make the guests have the best living experience, the entire courtyard is only designed into five suiteroom. The front and back walls are named “Xi” and “Yi” as the reception and guest leisure space, and the west wing has a modern kitchen, which not only provides guests with a modern kitchen. Authentic Sichuan cuisine or custom-made private house feast, you can also let guests personally cook and experience the relaxation of the home. “Xi” is the reception hall, and it is also the place where the guests are the mainstay of communication. The “Yi” is the multi-purpose hall. The owner is named after the good chess. The guests can taste wine, read, banquet, confrontation, music, meetings, Equipped with an 80-inch full-touch smart TV and B&O Bluetooth speaker, it can be wirelessly docked with the guest’s mobile phone, which can experience the blessing of the tongue, the entertainment of the sound, and the spiritual communication and collision between the host and the guest. In the design method, “Habitat” and “Yi” use four-fold glass sensor door, surrounded by brown film, leaving a transparentround hole in the middle, and the brown film shows the tonality of the old photos and gives the guests a sense of privacy. The central axis of the space is highlighted, and there is also the interest of crossing the ancient and
modern. At the same time, the circular skeleton of the wall is further echoed by the theme of the moon. Under the wooden beam gray tile, the copper pipe is latitude and longitude, and the spherical light bulb star points, as if the personnel are gradually hidden under the roof. A row of bulbs hangs down on the tea table to illuminate the moment.
The five rooms are named after the traditional Danqing “rouge”, “blue”, “dark green”, “green” and “emerald green”. The space is spread out from the inside out, from the inside to the outside, and the “rouge” and “blue” are changed. Separate the front and back halls, enter a hospital with a glory, and enjoy the quiet. The bed frame is whiteand leisurely, adding a bit of laziness. The sink is made up of copper tube frame, copper mirror hanging, stylish andsimple, but also a bit of ancient meaning, bathroom wall and white marble and ancient wood grain black marble, a light stroke of a strong color, such as ink freehand, gradient white The gauze glass is moved to the door, adding a little bit of water and milk to blend. The horizontal axis of the “dark green” room runs through the guest, bedroom and bath spaces, while the living room opens and closes the moon-shaped TV cabinet sliding door, which echoes the circular dragon LOGO on the opposite side of the pavilion. The choice of interior furniture and accessories is also based on the theme of five colors.
