About the Project

In an old village of southern China, H DESIGN was commissioned for the interior design of a folk inn hotel with a cultural museum, enhancing the local tradition of brick kiln production. The brick kiln cultural museum was built along the waterfront. The ground floor is mainly planned as a light dining area. It serves as a hub for local makers to boosting rural development. The additional residential buildings feature Jiangnan elements, brick solutions and classical Chinese garden displayed in a contemporary way. Among the materials used can find bamboo, steel frames, local bricks and wooden structures.

What’s unique about it

Refine local cultural elements into the space, but not lack of modernity.

Use native materials such as bamboos and bricks, environmentally friendly with innovative collocation.

Maximally optimize the comfort of space, according to local conditions and relying on the original brick kiln structure.

Adhering to the concept of "maximizing the design idea of designer and making it into reality ", the brick kiln culture can be extended and passed on.
