The Project is located on the top floor of an old flat in Shanghai. The house plan is L-shaped with less than 34 sq.m. in measurement and thirteen steps from the north to the south. Here live five people in three generations. The design makes three rooms connect diagonally with each other in the end of zigzagging walkway. Through these methods the previous narrow spaces are integrated, and the horizontal distance is extended. The background wall behind TV is decorated with rammed earth not only because of its fine-grained quality, various color and practicality to insulate noises, but also as a symbol of Danxia landform in the host’s hometow
