+ HOUSE, Song Zhuang A5
Size: 12,000 sq. ft.
One two “villas” we designed as part of a ten villa complex for art collectors in the art district of Song Zhuang north of Beijing, + House is organized around two intersecting axes: the short axis establishes the entry courtyard void connecting the street to the sunken garden, and the long axis acts as the circulation spine for the organization of the floors above.
In section, the interior and exterior spaces of the house are interconnected, providing unexpected views and visual connections between spaces of varying scale and height. The scale and proportions of the interior spaces work as both gallery and house, thus embracing the intersection of art and living.
The exterior facades feature pre-cast and colored concrete panels, Corten steel and various clear and translucent glass windows and window walls.
