Through reconstruction, 2/3 House initiates a dialogue with the new lives that came after its destruction. On one level, the project removed 1/3 of the house that was seriously damaged and collected the materials to restore the remaining 2/3, while on another level, it added a place for plants to grow on land vacated by the damaged 1/3 of the house, so the original residence has been transformed into a place for dialogues. 2/3 House has two entrances, one of which leads to the newly-constructed 1/3 of the house. The team transformed the original corner window room into a slowly rotating circular space with the damaged walls. The place is like a turntable of time, slowly transiting viewers into a new field, and in this rotating space, viewers face the sky while waiting, looking at the section of roof which remained after demolishment.
The newly-constructed 1/3 of the house is made of several elements, the first of which is a large wall extending to the outside. The wall allows visitors to get inside the old house from the rotating entrance and to get to know the “new” old house. Next is the curved staircase that leads to the rooftop, guiding visitors to move up from the garden entrance to experience the old house from a different perspective. Visitors are slowly raised up and are allowed to see the surrounding textures. Moving on, visitors can go into the gap in the roof and through the frames and beams, they find themselves once again inside the old house. The tour like being in a time machine, taking visitors from a new field through to experience the ambiance of the old building. The route also serves as a new roof to prevent the remaining 2/3 of the house from being damaged.
The other entrance to 2/3 House is the old, original entrance. The team designed three directions from which visitors could approach and experience the place. To the left is the original corner window room, which was reconstructed as a sunken space for meditation and for people to gather. They could simply walk in and sit down on the chairs provided. In the middle is the second option, which allows visitors to pass through the old house and connect with the outdoor space. It forms a place for viewing, moving, and staying, along with the outdoor garden. The viewing point to the right has the maximum depth of field in the entire location. The team opened up the wall that had blocked off the two houses, forming a new link with the new 1/3. With a water mist system and fan installations, the design blurs the boundaries of walls and rooms in the house with wind flows. Visitors can feel the sense of time and its background history while reading the relationship between the two parts of the house.
