Text description provided by the architects. Courtyard houses are a famous type of historic residence mostly found in Beijing. Courtyards used to be essential living spaces for Beijing locals. ”A house, a courtyard, a story” is the design theme used throughout the project. This theme inspired the project design and through the design process, traditional Chinese architecture was reinterpreted. The design aims to attach a different feeling to each courthouse through manipulating space, layout and building materials. Each courtyard house evokes a different emotion, ranging from calmness and tranquility to vitality and energy. The designs will inspire and uplift the guests, bringing them closer to nature. At the Courtyard House you can let your imagination run wild and find what you truly wish for in life.
