Hao Gan's words:
The urban design concept is to place two buildings along the street, in orderto form a relatively closed yard. A paradise inside along the square. The Groundfloor has a colonnade,which is flush with the neighbors'. There is a relatively narrow alleyway connecting square and the inner court. And the door set by the squareside of this alleyway is the definition of this inner court:it belongs to the apartment,it's private space.
Each unit is a twofloor apartment. The under unit will enjoy the large terrace,when the above one has a better view...
Facade of the material is concrete. Each floor has a very fine (2cm) profile by "standing back", to form a cornice. The line at the top is a little higher (with 4cm), the concrete of base is a little white. This makes a three-step effect in facade.The facades by the square side is relative closed. Facade facing the inner court is relative open.
Detail:From the outside to inside: 220mm concrete wall, waterproofing layer, 120mm insulation, 80mm special insulation and 30mm coating.concrete outside is the self-supporting structure,when inside the steel columns supporting slabs. Steel columns hidding in a special insulation layer. Railings and wall pieces are connected by the hinge. This is easy to assemble.
