Tessellation of Positive and Negative

Using the logic of combining and tessellating distinct modules derived from the study of Room Escape, the project discovers the figuration of positive space and through it the creation of negative space and circulation.

The main frame structure is LVL structure, and the project uses punched metal panel as double skin strategy to create a façade that through the comparison of wood and metal to highlight the warmth of wood material. In addition, there are several two-story atriums in this project to combine space vertically and create new shared living mode.
