Invited by DragonTV, the Cattle back mountain volunteer house is a social welfare project dedicating to building a house for young volunteers in the mountain of Pumaidi Village, Luding County, Sichuan Province. Known as the best viewing platform for clouds, Niubeishan, meets a large number of travelers and explorers every year, yet, due to the short of resource and development, public infrastructure and social support is still rather lagged behind. Pumaidi Village, the closest village from Niubeishan that inhabits villagers, presents itself as a typical village in Southwest China, with pitched roof, green tile, and harmonious living environment. Like most of the villages in suburban area in China,  the majority of the population is composed of the elderly and children, while the young and strong are out serving in the big cities trying to make a living for home. And thus, most of the houses in the village have been standing for long and maintenance is in desperate need. Considering all these, Dayan, an experienced volunteer, decided to build a social project base here,  not only to provide help for those travelers in need, but also the elderly and children in the village. The house will serve as a Youth Hostel at the same time so as to keep the financial balance of the social project. 






Upon renovation, it is an old traditional folk house, with wood pitched roof and broken tiles, facing with a platform (locally named as ‘Bazi’) in front, that is fragmented and shaded as couple dark rooms by couple thick walls.  The loft on the rooftop is old and shabby, with no kitchen or bathroom inside. On the south of the platform (Bazi), there is a squared brick house farmers made themselves, that’s neither coordinate to the surrounding nor resistant to earthquake.







Our design strategy is, while improving the basic programs and functions, to make the architecture more open and public, capable of serving more people, and blend in the new building equipped with architectural and structural innovation with the surrounding environment and its traditional culture.







We kept and strengthened the internal wood structure, got rid of the thick walls facing with the Bazi and its partitions to open up the first floor and serve as an important public space where people can read, meet and grab a drink. The steel net framed glass wall can be used to store firewood, and when it open completely, it merges the interior and exterior into one.








The old sty on the north of the Bazi is removed, while the wood structure and the roof are kept to transform into a kitchen and a bathroom, with the only proper flush toilet in the whole village installed.






We also removed the brick house on the south of the Bazi, and replaced it with a pavilion with wood structure  and tiles on top that shelters people from wind and rain. With all the above, we maximize the use of the Bazi, and also form a unique viewing platform.







In the project, we used the most basic architecture materials and the most common building technique (stone walls, pitched roofs and green tiles that consists with the original language), and we try our utmost to make full use of the local human resource. Modern digital logic and design strategies are also implemented in the process.








Looking at the main facade, from left to right, you will be able to see an organic roof shape merging with the mountain and clouds at its back, and the perfect transition from traditional art to modern art, or even the exploration of the future.







 As for the internal space, it’s a brand new expression of wood structure in digital times. Another part worth mentioning, the wood material used in the project is produced locally in Sichuan, a new type of bamboo-based fiber composite with high resistance to strength, moisture and fire that’s also recyclable and environmentally friendly.  Being the first time for the producers to implement the material to irregular shaped architecture like this one, the producers took high participation in the process involving sampling on site, custom pre-made in the factory and manual adjustment on site.










In talking about the special design of this part, principal architect Daode Li stated:
The weaving roof and the mountain, along with the clouds at its back are connected in a way aesthetically, but yet, we hope this connection can extend to a more spiritual level. When traveler, volunteers, or even villagers approach from afar, looking at this unique and familiar building shimmering with warmth, they are then seized by the feeling of belongings, like a long drifting ship in the ocean spots a light tower that gives them immediate courage to move forward.

  1. 难能的一次探索,年轻的中国设计师,抛掉包袱,大胆的干吧……….

  2. 咦这个不是梦想改造家的节目里面那个吗

  3. Profile Photo

  5. 之前在电视上看的时候觉得很爽!去牛背山徒步的时候经过了这里,现场看了感觉一般!

  6. 其实看待设计要用人最直观的感受去评价。第一看看到这个设计的时候我已经可以看出设计师满满的诚意了。真的中国设计在这几年进步不小,背后真正的原因我想应该是思考方式的转变。做设计不能有太多历史包袱,设计本身是对于现代人生活的反思,刚才看到有人评价从古建筑的角度去考虑我感觉是属于吹毛求疵。而且我认为设计根本是要考虑使用人的感受,满足这一点其次是实用功能,最后才是施工技术。技术永远是为了满足人的精神需求而生而改进的。我给中国设计的点点滴滴进步点赞!

  7. 只能说是昙花一现。。。这建筑能撑得了多久?

  8. 作为公益项目,觉得意义很好,但是对于这个异形的屋顶和他上面硬铺的瓦片实在不敢苟同。漏水估计是迟早的事情。本事中国屋面的瓦的构造做法是有他的逻辑在里面的,所以从古至今也都是坡屋顶,没有其他的改变。你这里用瓦片强行适应这样异形的屋顶,虽然构造上你们用来一一些构件来相互连接,但是还是无法背离地心的引力。如果是我做,我会把新建的用适合他的材料构造去做,而不是拿瓦去勉强附会。

  9. 强行使用木结构和瓦,企图融入与周边的建筑产生和谐感,导致这个木结构的结构柱乱支我只能用丑来形容,木条之间全部用铁片加螺丝钉搭界简直扎眼。瓦片居然要用铁片固定??? 这个屋顶延续到地面究竟有什么意义???我只能说设计师对中国式建筑的理解几乎为零,我所看到的也只是学生作业似的设计语言。假如这个波动延续的屋顶实在是有设计上的意义,那就不应该使用木结构来实现,退一步说,在山区设计条件为尽量运用当地材料的情况下就不该用这样的造型。

  10. 设计本身不重要,建造的过程难能可贵,精神可嘉!材料的选择过于保守了

  11. 喜欢这种木结构

  12. 上海卫视的《梦想改造家》里有详细介绍这个案例的,推荐大家去看看。[开心]

  13. 暖光在深山里很有味道

  14. 我想问一个问题 这个建筑要不要报消防? 木结构的防火 怎么实现?

  15. it copes perfectly well with its surrounding environment..I think…..

  16. 上海卫视的节目里看到过这个,一个类似于日本的“超级改造王”,挺不错的节目,可惜切换到主持人画面的是瞬间就变成了电视购物了。

  17. 我个人觉得这样的设计在中国已经很难得了,无论设计多大胆,但是施工绝对是难题,完成度能这样,我想竖起大拇指,绝对是建筑师和施工人员共同努力的结果过程的困难绝对不是图片那么容易,本身的价值已经超越此设计是否好坏,这种精神绝对可嘉的。不由自主给个赞。

  18. 觉得设计很棒,传统穿越到现代,在场地也并不违和,虽然有一部分炫技成分,但是不失为一次有胆量的尝试!

  19. 感觉屋顶的形式还能做的更纯粹一些,通过这样的起伏与群山呼应感觉很牵强,形态上也很奇怪

  20. 喜欢·,给力,不解释

  21. 没有跟自然融合 怪

  22. 配套与维护太差

  23. 金属构件会被周围的树木耻笑

  24. 很想知道这个防水是怎么做的,不规则屋面,尤其交接部分。。。

  25. 设计感强烈 但感觉屋顶并非很实用 而且作为青年旅舍等功用来讲 即使内部没有使用过多资金精心再延续整体风格 但仍觉得 是否有些奢侈 在这样一个山村中建设这样一个建筑 同样的资金 是否能用在其他方面为村民更实际地提供方便 提供帮助呢

  26. 真的很厉害[害羞]

  27. 室内设计不能很好地延续建筑的整体风格略感失望啊

  28. 当时看节目时被完全震撼到了

  29. 人文与人性化的设计

  30. 眼前一亮的感觉~

  31. 当时看了这一期节目,设计师挺大胆的,这么穷乡僻壤的一个地方,设计了这么复杂一个造型,很容易做残的。如果结构骨架用钢材就好了,竹子时间久了会老化,还要防虫蛀

  32. 今年到现在看到的最“哇!”的建筑。
