HISTORIC VILLA, NANJING, CHINA
This historic Min Guo house is located in a designated UNESCO World Heritage site in Nanjing, China. The Owners asked us to accurately restore the period exterior, while transforming the interior into a centerpiece of contemporary minimalism. The clean spare spaces flow seamlessly from the main building by a structural glass walkway to a new wing, and the entire site is landscaped with flowering plants, magnolia trees, and a contemporary koi pond. The result is a distinctive compound for this visionary multi-generational family that is unlike any private home in one of China’s oldest cities. Images © No.Triangle Studio.
