We designed a new guesthouse for young people from all over the world at Koya-san, the head temple of the Shingon sect founded 1200 years ago, the UNESCO world heritage. It is a mixture of Japanese capsule type hotel in which the privacy is well protected, and dormitory in which the communication among the guests is active. Each single room directly faces a hall so that you can chose proper distance with other guests ensuring the privacy. Selecting of thin wooden structure, resulting that the burden load per one pillar is relatively light, visibility of environmental facilities for easier maintenance and the simple composition of the space allow not only owner of this guest house but also guests to maintain, modify and keep on using this architecture for the long time.

Set in a bucolic residential neighborhood in Ithaca, New York, the simple zinc-metal and mahogany clad guest house rests upon an existing white-washed pool house foundation. The guest house is nestled across from an elegant whitewashed brick main house, complimented by a steel and wood pergola along its west edge, creating an intimate setting for an outdoor stone-terraced swimming pool court. The guest house cantilevers over the pool house to actively engage the main house while hovering above the existing pool.

The village of Mathon is situated in the Beverin Nature Park whith its unique, wild landscape, thus creating a special challenge for the architecture. The architects’ task was to design a very functional “guest house” with strong attention to detail, while maintaining respectful interaction with the environment. The building was set without a basement directly on the already existing foundation and aligned in such a way that every room had superb views of the Alps. To obtain maximum living space, the planning incorporated a minimal traffic area. The half a meter thick masonry did not require additional insulation and, together with the regional materials, provides for sustainable construction, while also ensuring a pleasant room climate. Thanks also to the warmth of the hosts, the house is a wonderful place to refuel and enjoy.

On an island in the Bay of Islands, four separate buildings discretely occupy an east-facing bay. The houses are light pavilions which promote the concept of ‘roof’ as the predominant element of shelter. The monopitch roofs float above and beyond the spaces, supported on exo-skeletal structures beautifully detailed in wood. Exterior walls are taut joinery frames, offering minimal interruption between inside and out. The boat shed is totally underground, to reduce visual built form in the bay, with the guesthouse above.

Go happens to be the Sirname of the client… mir in Korean means a dragon…so Gomir means Go’s dragon…
Jeju is an Island south of Korean peninsular, famous as a vacation spot. The landscape is dominated by halla mountain in the center and basalt rocks by the sea. The weather is more balmy than mainland which allows for more exotic vegetation growth. The site is located just five minute walk from a famous tourist site called Yongdoam(dragon’s head), which is a basalt formation that looks like a dragon’s head.

The guesthouse berge is nestled in Aschau in Chiemgau, at the foot of the Kampenwand mountain and holds a unique charm. Those, who move into their quarters in berge, shouldn’t expect excessive luxury – but rather an inviting ambiance, natural materials, real art and a lot of attention to Detail. Almost all of the apartments are equipped with a small, but smart kitchen, which entices guests to don an apron. Because there’s no restaurant in berge.

The project is the last one which Dushe team (www.shdsd.cn) designed in ECADI.
This fragmented system is frequently used as an interpretation of contemporary cities; the iconic fragment becomes the signature of the city. But the city itself contains abundant resources. The 99% of these fragments are unknown for the public, but the city is also composed of background buildings.
