project description:

Beijing, China RDH was asked to submit a competition proposal for the redesign of two buildings located within the 2008 Olympic Village, Beijing, China. The buildings are double loaded, linear housing blocks running parallel to one another. The long facades of both buildings are north and south facing resulting in two distinct facade compositions. The north facing blocks are designed to generate maximum reflected light penetration while the south facing blocks incorporate a deep frame and screening for sun protection.
