On the outskirts of Shanghai, we renovated a Suzhou garden-style antique house. Single-family house, with underground garage as the main entrance of motor vehicles, is divided into people and vehicles. In the chaotic and dilapidated state of the past, the house has taken on a new look. By introducing light into the house and increasing the layout level of the space, we have brought new vitality to the space, and at the same time created opportunities for rewriting history and creating new memories.

The project aims to create a space for family emotional communication, and create the overall space atmosphere with the warmth of natural light and the simplicity and elegance of wall materials. As the area of Project 3/5 is underground, we will think about the source and significance of light through the narrow skylight in the dark basement.

For the in-depth understanding of the owners, it is also an inevitable choice to change the house into a communication space for living emotions. Through the transformation, it not only helps to continue the original unique oriental characteristics of the building, but also shows a new design expression with different ideas, a "non-urban" place, a safe haven that can isolate the noise of the outside world, help to adjust one's senses and emotions, and re-establish dialogue with oneself.

Through the intervention of space, we have built this place into a warm space with continuity and minimalist style; At the same time, the natural lighting in the basement is improved, and a large number of oriental craft materials are used, so that there is a close dialogue between light and matter. Wu Mansion is both a house and a place; An intimate space for creativity, and most importantly, a space for enjoyment and sharing.
