The project location is in Hsinchu City, Taiwam; it's a rezoning area from farmland and a military base. The village that once stood there dates from 1950; the location is a formal Air Force veteran village; the air force village was famous for flying high altitude surveillance planes; and the people who live there are highly bonded as a community. The old village was demolished for a new high-density residential area. The memories of the old village and childhood neighborhood are rapidly disappearing with modern development, so this design is an attempt to continue the lost memories.
It all started with the concept of re-creating the community that was here by using modern architecture, Under the high demand of real estate, every city looks the same after rezoning and development, with the disappearance of local identity and neighbor connection. Instead of building one traditional residential tower in a high-population area, this project recreates the sense of an old neighborhood; the old neighborhood once here was dense and rough, but it created a sense of neighborhood bonding. The layout given this neighborhood a pedestrian route connects with every courtyard, each house is connected with its own yard; and there are a few architecture typologies given to the 61 buildings by varying the volume and balcony, which also give each building its own view and privacy.
