Appreciation towards Wang Tiantian for providing the following description:
1. 翠玲珑 Cui Linglong
Before having a chance to design a house of our own, various imaginations about it emerged in our minds. The real beginning of design called for an appropriate start which was somehow incidental. As architects sharing the interest in Chinese gardens of Jiangnan, Yaqin and I arrived at the idea of embedding “Cui Linglong”, a house in the Surging Waves Pavilion Garden in Suzhou, in an 80㎡ apartment typical in modern China. Thus, a garden is no longer just a garden and an apartment is no longer just an apartment, then what will it become of? Initially we were not quite clear about it, and we only know that this is an interesting start.
A creator of gardens places a hill in a yard, modifying it and turning it into his or her habitat and a dialogist. Similarly , we placed a fragment of a garden in an ordinary apartment, modifying it ，trying to live in it and talk to it. This presupposition started a living experiment and also determined how we would relate to tradition.
For many people, Cui Linglong is probably just an image implying an even lattice window through which the green of dense bamboos fully occupied one’s sight, while for us it represents some specific space structure exiting in Song Dynasty. Each of the three rooms is square, connected with one another by the corner, which provides the widest view in each room. Such connection provides a zigzag space, which brings about experience that is not available in any one single room.

2. 既是3个小房间又是1个大房间 3 small rooms or 1 big room
Room-oriented residential pattern has become dominant in contemporary Chinese cities. Meanwhile, many young people can hardly afford an apartment, not to mention building a home in a sense beyond mere interior decoration. In such conditions,I appreciate my parents very much for buying us an apartment of two bedrooms and one living room in Hangzhou, which put an end to our years of unsettled life.
According to the apartment’s original plan, it included three rooms in the south, two bedrooms and a living room; and a kitchen, a bathroom and a small study room are in the north. In a word, the program is reasonable in its convenience and efficiency.
However, the premise of such reasonableness is that we’ve got used to an oversimplified living mode in which life is reduced to bald behaviors like watching TV, having meals or sleep, etc, each relating to a clearly defined room.
We hoped all the constraints in urban life won’t extend to our home. What we intended to do was to structurally challenge the current presupposition of such reasonableness and bring more freedom, easiness and fun to our home, all of which have nothing to do with styles.
