Tongling Recluse is originally a damaged mixed style dwelling. For the layout, we added a span in the west as well as the south-north. The traditional folding roof and a streamline combined into one, reflecting Taoist culture “the three generates everything”. The previous walls shaped the main space, which now is interior partitions. We marked original old bricks and rebuild the wall with them after finishing the new foundation. Thus, we responded to the local culture and eco-sustainability.
