The Gradientower

The idea is to create a functional-stuck tower with houses on the lower part responding to the height of the surrounding buildings and on the higher offices according to the planned ones. 

The Shenzhen’s municipality decide to implement a low-rise area with a new masterplan of towers. This area is surrounded by mid-rise residential towers.  Within the masterplan the eastern area is destined for office towers whereas the western one is for mixed use buildings.

Since the modernist time the architectural market is asking for galzed towers all around the World, but this is not sustainable anymore so we decided to do not skip the market demand but to find a way to be vernacular and green.  To emphasize the quality of both spaces the glass of the building moves.

It is sent back for the houses in order to create deep balconies all around  the apartments that provide shades during the hot summer and a lovely outdoor space in the other periods of the year, a real extension of the indoor.

In the office part the glass is offsetted out in order to create a double-layered ventilated facade that provide a better thermal insulation.

This also allows to have a better control of the quality of the light into the building.
