The Rural of Dabie Mountains / HOMME ARCHITECTS
The Nanwanggang village, under the governance of Xinyang city, has abolished its administrative establishment since the township merging and adjustment many years ago. The entire base consists of two parts - the former courtyard of the township government has fallen into disuse while its adjacent grain reserve depot has been out of service for years.

Instead of creating merely imitative forms, however, we focused on developing the spatial experience by staging views and establishing the relationship between the structures and their surrounding environment. Eventually, four houses, the Seeds, were constructed. They seemed to arise from another dimension, looking nothing like we had originally planned.

The existing traditional classrooms were transformed into open, flexible, and conn
