Residential buildingZhucun Design
The climatic and topographical conditions required the architects to develop relevant countermeasures. Because of the heavy local rainfall and low terrain, they sought to retain the land for planting as much as possible. The building was raised by a half-story through the construction of an English half-basement, which can be used for parking and storage. The first floor is on the raised half. This allows the damp and hot air on the ground to be carried away by the wind, keeping the room cool and dry. In order to filter sunlight, a metal grille was mounted on the outer wall. This also serves to add a refined shape.
