Papa’s Hostel

As for the second floor of the construction, we intend to keep the original characteristics of the spacious room, so the conventional method that using the fixed wall to divide the space is denied; several space elements with the concept of "houses within a house" are implanted into the original house. They are made up of lightweight materials, which are dismountable, portable and translucent. The "houses within a house” are installed, which are gentle and light weighted com-pared to the original construction. The actual function of "houses within a house" is the living units of Papa’s Hostel; each unit can accommodate 4-6 people. The semi-hollow sheets as dividing walls are specially used to create a soft and blurred effect that highlights the construction character comparing to the original hard materials.
