House of Dreams
by Insitu Project

Insitu Project

The House of Dreams is an innovative community-led revitalisation of a cave area in Zhoushan, China, into a rural development and training facility.

The villagers named the project as the caves were their childhood homes. Completed in 2021, the project involved 19 caves, 3 large courtyards and three new service buildings built using recycled construction waste materials in walls and surfaces constructed by villagers with no construction experience.


This project has been longlisted in the sustainable building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
