Folding space No.2: 65 square meters semi-basement house renovation/DAGA Architects
半地下室 | Semi-basement
In addition to the typical hutong courtyard, some of the houses in Xicheng District of Beijing are apartment buildings built in the 1980s. Although these buildings are not as old as hutong houses, there are still many inconveniences for people's life today, which need to be renovated to improve the quality of the space.

The renovation project is a house near Deshengmen in Beijing. The biggest "feature" of this house is that it is a semi-basement. The house has a total of 65 square meters and has 2 bedrooms, and the apartment is permeable from north to south as a whole, but due to the special topography of the whole unit building, the owner's house has become a semi-basement, and the south side of the room is a normal first floor house, which can be lighted normally, while the north side of the room is half below the ground, so only two very small high windows are used for daylighting, which makes the indoor light dim and humid.

This 65-square-meter semi-underground house accommodates the life of the owner's family of five. Residents include couples, two children, and elderly grandma. Since only the south side has normal lighting, the activities of the family are basically concentrated in the master bedroom on the south side. Originally, there was only a room of 65 square meters, and the space on the north side was almost unused, reducing the interior use space. Moreover, the dampness, darkness, and poor air quality caused by the housing pattern are not conducive to the physical and mental health of the elderly and children. Too many problems need to be solved urgently. How to let the sunlight shine back into the room and make use of the space on the north side of the room is a major difficulty in this transformation.
