Concrete Slit House

Anything concrete and as sculptural as this is going to get our attention.

Concrete Slit House is a contemporary concrete residence
http://homeinspectionallstar.com enmeshed within a quiet Kuomingtang-era neighborhood in central Nanjing. The entire structure and roof are made from concrete pressed into a custom mould, handmade from five-centimeter horizontal wood strips to remain in scale with the adjacent century-old brick buildings.

Why we like this

  • Strong concept and well followed through
  • Impressively sculptural and ‘concrete’
  • Contextually fitting
  • Interesting ground condition
  • Beautifully ‘textural’ in material and detailed accordingly
