Youth Hostel of iD Town, on the hilltop of the seaside valley, was originally served as one of the dormitory building in Honghua Dying Factory’s residential area, representing the settlements of the first batch of immigrant labors after the open-reform policy and industrialization that firstly took place in Shenzhen.


The renovation process mainly consists of two spatial actions: firstly equipping the central corridor with new hotel infrastructure to facilitate the new living units, and secondly installing a sequence of prefab steel opening box on the existing facade to create a more dynamic interaction between the building and the surrounding nature. The ground floor functions as a multi-purpose social space with a variety of facilities containing reception, cafe, open kitchen and common space. By a subtle alteration of the original structure this handful of functions dynamically relate to one and other.


The living units, located from the 2nd floor to the 4th, brought back to life by small adaptations of the original framework bringing the opportunity of a new perspective to the original spatial composition. All these subtle but influential alterations creates a new breath to this once ruined structure.
