9 Boxes-Taihe ComplexTorna alla Lista di Progetti
After buying the entire development properties from the previous investor, the new developer was eager to transform these 9 houses, which have very distinguish styles, into art gallery and office space with minimum cost and time scale. We proposed the solution of wrapping these 9 buildings individually with light steel structure and a galvanized steel skin. The finished work gives these ‘steel houses’ a harmonic contrast with the gray brick structures of the other houses in the estate.
