Lu Yuzhuo designed Grey Green Residence. As the era of the pandemic brings new thinking about living, we must consider providing more open areas for activities and a comfortable and relaxing office environment for long hours of staying at home.
This case goes beyond the stereotypical image of a traditional residence and creates a calm and livable ambiance for staying at home through materials, structures, and zoning. The original residence layout features a trivial structure in which beams are interspersed with columns. Besides, the beams are of varying heights. The space is overly segmented and underutilized. We broke the partitions in the public space, removed redundant parts, weakened structural defects, and utilized marginal positions for storage purposes.
