House in Longmen by The Design Institute of Landscape & Architecture China Academy of Art Co.
Located in Hangzhou, China, House in Longmen is a contemporary real estate project designed by The Design Institute of Landscape & Architecture China Academy of Art Co. in 2021.
Nestled in the outskirts of Longmen Ancient Town, the house is an example of how to balance economical construction and energy savings while embracing traditional and modern architecture. Local materials and craftsmanship have been used to respect the natural environment and create a connection with the local culture. Reinforced concrete frames and cedar roof frames are combined with local natural wood and stone to create a modern interior design that also reduces energy consumption.
With the possibility of future B&B operations in mind, House in Longmen is a project that seeks to revive the values of place and countryside through design and create comfortable and pleasant dwellings for the villagers.
