The ground floor is a firm base, built with large slabs of recycled concrete extracted from the former embassy building. It surrounds a central courtyard. Opening up to the site entrance, a transversal perspective crosses the whole site and reveals a sequence of gardens and rooms bathing in natural light. Indoor and outdoor relationships answer the strong season changes in Beijing.
The straightfoward upper floors provide flexible working spaces. The encounter of cyclopean crafted spaces with and an almost zero-degree architecture: is this about China?
