Plain House by Wutopia Lab 

Yu Ting, the Principal Architect at Wutopia Lab, explains: “I insist on the establishment of a dual relationship in the design, me and the artist, Isozaki and me, my old project and new one, the surrounding buildings and artist’s house, artists’ paintings and residence, all these information leads to Plain house.

Artist Li Bin has two studios. The first and the second studios, respectively, are designed by Isozaki and Wutopia Lab. Li wanted the renovation to shift the living functions from the first studio to the second studio. The first studio has now been repurposed as his own museum, while the second studio has been converted into his house, a painter’s house. A bridge connects these two spaces.
