Text description provided by the architects. Yangtai Shan mountain is located west of Beijing, this is a well-known place for its orchards. Very nice in the spring with all the flowering trees, Yangtai Shan is a popular vacation spot for Pekingese. Thus, our client wanted to build his country house, as a quiet bubble, to share moments with family and friends and escape from the capital’s stress.

The new building has a modern geometry: the south east corner shows the curved profiles of traditional roofing and can offer beautiful ceiling heights for the important rooms. The materiality of the brick, as a traditional material produced locally, is developed in all its aspects. The expression of the facades, alternating solid walls and screen walls, is reinterpreted on the courtyard’s ground making the link with the renovated existing building.
