Cubic House的设计旨在平衡业主对建筑面积的需求和未来城市生活品质之间的关系。建筑师将这座居住综合体的体量打散成几个单独的“方块”,并将它们堆叠在一起。

▼项目外观,external view of the building

The design of the Cubic Houses aims to balance the client’s wish for a large amount of square meters with the envisioned character of urban life in the area. The result is a residential complex that breaks down the building volume into several individual ‘cubes’ – stacked and shifted on top of each other.

▼设计概念,建筑被打散成八个方形体块,design concept, the building breaks into 8 cubics


The configuration of cubes reflects the rhythm of a human scale and works against long stretches of street with no variation or human activity. The design adapts to the overall urban scale of the neighborhood, yet contributes to a varied and lively small scale atmosphere along the central canal.

▼打散的建筑体块为运河和周边环境增添活力,cubic volumes contributed to a various and lively atmosphere to the central canal and surrounded evironment

▼更具活力的空间,space with more vitality

从基本的设计理念上来说,Cubic House采用了常规的公寓平面,空间宽敞而简洁。在保留垂直楼梯的前提下,八个方形体块相互形成错位。这种上下层的体块变化打破了原本一成不变的建筑外观,并与当地的微气候环境相适应。

In its basic concept, Cubic Houses is a regular building slap with spacious and simple apartment layouts. Maintaining the vertical stairways, the eight brick cubes shift in relation to each other, both at the ground floor and higher up. The shifting of volumes breaks eventual turbulence and adapts the building to local microclimatic conditions.
