So we selected not the tower on the reference floor plans but the shape to set back while diagonally limiting the limits so that all the dwellings could have a large terrace. The terrace is covered with roofs and trees, creating a three-dimensional and comfortable intermediate area on the building surface. HANGZHOU PASTRY
The 6 m grid rigid RC structure is covered with a 3 m grid roof frame system. The main body structure is RC construction and the roof is a light structure of steel frame structure. The slope of the roof is constant, and changing the direction of the tilt makes a changeable expression.
