Guò Bàn Ér has renovated and extended the House M001 in Beijing, China.
This project was the renovation and extension of an original typical 1990s rural bungalow house with dry-hung tiles, transforming it into a new home for two dogs and a family of four.
"The success of the project has inspired a new way of life for people who yearn for a natural life and are troubled by sky-high rent in Beijing today," told Guò Bàn Ér.
The design has given the vacant house a second life, uplifting the building from an abandoned place into a lively living space.
An additional 50 square metres were added to the main house, increasing the comfort of the living experience for the family – while the renovated living room serves as the most open social centre, connecting the gardens on the north and south sides.
