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.
