The key of the design is a combination of typical housing units and a three-dimensional arrayed geometry deformed from cutting and folding a flat surface. After the combination, we could find out many interesting and unusual spaces, like, triangle, rhombus and trapezoid. The process of developing the project is to functionalize them and make them meaningful, turning the pure geometry into an comprehensive architecture system.
The main interior spaces are placed between two geometric forms, and they shape the interior spaces from different degrees. In the north part, the gap is managed in to passage spaces. And mostly, room plan are adapted to meet the functional requirements like kitchens and bathrooms. The geometric form has greater influence on the south façade, a pitch roof shape of frame is formed in the living room; the balconies are interlaced at different floors; the sloping walls are used as bookshelves and space for plants.
The unusual semi-opening spaces will foster the exciting moments of residents’ daily life. The appearance of and apartment building is no longer a boring flat surface. More vivid life scenes will happen. Residents are coming out of the regular boxes, looking through from the window and walk to balconies and passages. Changing balconies and stairs create more communications between neighbors without privacy intruded.
