As a typical picturesque Chinese Jiangnan town, the village of Jijiadun locates about 1.5-hour drive from the central city of Shanghai. With the rapid development of urbanization in China, the problem of rural hollowing-out is becoming increasingly serious.
In order to revitalize the village, the government of the local rural township invited a team of professionals to re-develop and renovate the village. By introducing the cultural and creative industries into the village while respecting its rural scene and culture, Jijiadun village is attracting “new villagers” from the cities and thus forming a new dynamic rural living community.
The project of BAN Villa sits at the entrance of the Jijiadun village. The site is surrounded on three sides by a small river, and there are croplands not far away from the site.
The design team starts with rethinking the possibilities of the relations between the countryside and the city. The “new villagers” from the cities bring new industries and lifestyles to the village, which helps strengthen the bond between the village and the city. The basic context of the redevelopment of the village sets the tone for the project.
As a part of the rethinking of today’s Jijiadun Village, the project of Ban Villa is an attempt to explore new possibilities of the countryside in future. In the villa, people can enjoy quiet and cozy moments and experience local culture of Jiangnan watertown.
They can also encounter the owner of the villa and enjoy tea and chat together. They can even meet new friends and communicate with each other while dining and drinking together.
BAN Villa is more than a boutique guesthouse. It provides possibilities of new village life for urban dwellers.
