Reviving a village’s cultural heritage through
the restoration of its traditional architecture.


The Fairy Water Village community wants to build a more resilient future on their own. Their first step is to restore the Granting – a 300-year-old community meeting hall and symbol of this Chinese community. The community has teamed-up with two architects to restore their cultural heritage, develop water infrastructure and create new economic possibilities.
