Located in China, in Nanjing City, the concrete house at once minimalist and subtly composed was designed by Atelier Zhanglei.
Façade or roof, the entire envelope and structure is made of concrete. Finely woven, the facade is reminiscent of those of neighboring houses and their horizontal brickwork. The volume, simple and mineral, has a slit running through it all the way up, providing view and natural light. Uniting more than it separates, this break makes it possible to connect the floors and the half-levels between them.
