Concrete Slit House

Concrete Slit House

Concrete Slit House is a contemporary concrete residence that gives a good example to the definition of architectural minimalism, the structure and roof of the slit house are casted and fair-face finished entirely from concrete. Designed by AZL architects the 270 square meters residence, in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, China, is designed with various levels on the inside, creating rooms with ceiling heights extending one and a half levels and the reception/living area at two levels high, along with the slit (opening) in the concrete shell of the house, it gives a high sense of transparency that responds to the interior circulation.

Here are some of the house’s drawings showing the simplicity of its design
