Evaluation

This is a housing renovation project. Today, the utilization of old houses has been a big socially addressed issue with a sizeable market. It also poses a valuable option for contributing to environmental protection and neighborhood development. Despite the high interest, there are not that many cases in which houses built by big construction companies are renovated. This is due to the fact that the industrial housing exists in a rather closed loop. This project is significant because it challenged this barrier. It is quite admirable that the project has created an unprecedented and beautiful space through renovation and made efforts to increase the social value from the viewpoint of structure and environmental capability.
