Located in the south of city, hundreds of years, silently stood at the alley and near the ancient city wall , it was listed as the protection buildings to being repaired. On the north of the original house, two pseudo-classic architectures were built to constitute three enclosed open courtyards.With the unsophisticated and narrow entrance, people bow to cross and rise brightly. “LAI Yard” is named after “Lai”, which means it is from far to here, from traditional to contemporary. The architect wishes to convey the modern architecture in the traditional courtyard.
The layout of this project is decent, but also full with surprising details. Contrary elements, such as the old and the new, the interior and the exterior, the light and the dark, the conventional and the contemporary, are found to meet here, and merge into a harmony existence. Light and Space, are the only two themes that the architect emphasized.
