Although the traditional brick-laying method can present the sense of culture and history, however it’s unable to effectively protect the cleanliness and flatness of the building surface, which is far from the fine appearance pursued by the project. Therefore, one of the key targets of this project is to investigate the balance with the material selection and fine appearance.

Dry-hanging terracotta brick is the material that not only possesses all material properties of red brick, but also ensures the fine quality of appearance. Through different bricklaying methods such as staggering, hollowing out, concave and convex, the façade have achieved richness of architectural expression.

On the night falls, the LED slowly light up, the hanging stairs volume gradually shows its distinctiveness and becoming the focal point of the whole building. The fritted glass breaks the dullness brought by conventional frosted glass. Its crystal and transparent appearance forms a strong visual contrast with the warm and dense red brick that metaphorize the new shoots blooming out from the trunk of history.
