People often say that life is like a voyage. Then, home must be that only island floating on it. It is the place where you treasure the collectibles discovered, and keep all the joys and tears you have experienced during the voyage. You may also bring back a person who is willing to spend the rest of the life with you.

Our designer Thomas Xie was invited to lead his team for a renovation of a one-hundred-year-old house in Guangzhou, in order to achieve the finest home-living experience. In the meantime, he wanted to evoke the family’s treasurable memory, as well as to re-narrate the memory in a more lively way.
There are 4 residents living in the house to be renovated, Mrs. Feng, her fourth song and his wife, as well as the youngest grandson. Every holiday, Mrs. Feng’s other children (3 to 5 people) will stay for a brief period.
The house was built in 1919. Mrs. Feng has lived here since the age of nine, coming back from Malaysia for education. This old house has an abundant of memories between Mrs. Feng and her husband, as well as the growth of her five children.
