Yangmeizhu 2 is one of the pilot projects developed in Dashilar for the 2013 Beijing Design Week. We created a small installation on the ground floor exhibiting our concept for the future renovation of the building.
Our site consists of a series of disconnected volumes on multiple levels arranged around two little courtyards, shared by three different tenants. The project aims at solving the vertical communication between the two floors and the roof terrace as well as improving the critical illumination and ventilation of the ground level.
The construction of a new staircase that works as a light-well creates a new core that organizes the whole internal program. At the same time, a series of small terraces and overhanging volumes extends the rooms outwards and enhances the visual connections with the communal spaces.
