Originally a barn, it has not been used for many years before the renovation.
The barn has already become a house. The residents nearby do not want a completely different building in their neighborhood, so architect try to keep the facade of the original building as much as possible. At the same time, architects insert a new volume into the original space to meet necessity of daily life, By this way original architectural outline is not been disturbed in context.
▽ 原有建筑立面的完整保留，the original building facade is kept
▽ 全新建筑体量的植入，the insertion of a new structure
Structure system and wooden fence of original facade are completely separated. During the day, sunlight penetrates through the wooden fence of the façade and the new structure into interior space; when night comes, light can also penetrate from the cracks in the wooden fence. Architects create an ambiguous status in between old and new, transparent and opaque.
