Lee dedicated his life to the film industry. His life is a stage. The residence exhibits a series of the legend's life stage sets. The challenge to transform his residence into a museum lies on ways to moving visitors around these stage sets.
Firstly we identified the areas to preserve and restore it into original settings. Then we demolished the rest and around these preserved areas we insert circulation zones. Finally we expanded the circulation zones to house new programs. After all we planned a guided route to maneuver visitors between new space and preserved settings.
The balance between the preserved and the newly inserted makes the museum unique in its nature and its location.
