From the Desk of an Architect
The reconstruction also involved removal of prefabricated partitions, opening up the floor plan though the entire cross section of the building, enhancing the spatial character of the apartments, the best of which are located in the roof extension.
The original storage facilities located on the ground floor were replaced by new amenities for the residents –a cafe, a gym and a sauna –all connected onto the external terrace. The renewed building envelope is simple and compact, embellished with suspended steel balconies which add a distinctive feature.
So, Friends this is all about prefabrication and prefab house constriction on going trends in architectture and construction industries. This is one fine example for restudy for all of us. Hope you people enjoy it.
