JG Phoenix has renovated the Sayeah house in Shantou, China.

Due to its long-term uninhabited state, the Sayeah house had experienced severe ageing, cracking of walls and the deformation of doors and windows.

"So, we decided to renovate it, not changing the original framework pattern while retaining the architectural characteristics of the old house," told JG Phoenix.

After careful consideration, the readjustment to the layout was based on function – the bricks, tiles, wooden doors and windows were all preserved with a sense of time, whereas aesthetically, they look more charming.

"During the renovation process, my real intention was to integrate the nostalgic feelings deep inside the heart into the old house," added JG Phoenix.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable renovation category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
