This project features for towers of housing for which a grid was developed to efficiently wrap and fit each building and guide the placement of windows and other elements across each envelope. The thickness of this grid is then adjusted according to the orientation of its application. The thicknesses of the south facing grid for example are contracted to create larger openings for sunlight while east and west facing grid thicknesses are expanded to block strong sunlight.

Use: Collective Housing

Scope: Schematic Design, Design Supervision

Collaborated: Tsushima Design Studio
