The old house in Shijiazhuang designed and renovated by Archiford Design Office is located in Zhao County, Shijiazhuang City.

The project explores the theme of “What kind of living environment do we need?” and asks several questions: What kind of life are people here? What kind of living environment do the people living here need? Where will the development of the town go?

The converted house is located in the urban area of Zhaozhou, Gu County, 12 km away from Zhaozhou Bridge, the ancient thousand-year-old bridge. The house was built in 1999 and covers an area of 160 square meters. In view of the economic and time constraints at the time, the entire house took 45 days to complete. There are many problems in internal space handling. Ten years ago, the second floor of the house was remodeled and renovated to become the main place of residence.
