Glass-block Micro House - Dezeen Awards 2020

Glass-block Micro House

An urban micro house located at a tiny 18-square-meter site in an alleyway has been renovated to fit the owner's needs.

The renovated house consists of a living-dining-kitchen area as well as a leather fashion shop on the ground level, and two bedroom suites on the above floors with contemporary yet traditionally-inspired interior design. Two old brick walls were entirely replaced by glass-block facade, an uncommon yet unique material. At daytime, the house engages natural light and nicely blends with the surroundings. At night, when lights on, the house becomes a magically sparkling lantern in the middle of the neighborhood.

This project has been longlisted in the residential rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
