The Completed Building

This construction site was in a compactly populated area with only narrow frontage and restricted depth. In order to maximise use of the tight space a combination of creative design and construction was required.  

To ensure the largest possible useable area and eliminate dead space, the columns and joists were made as small as possible. In addition, the exterior wall was integrated with the constructional materials. (t=4.5mm)

In view of the style of building, we used a building-block method building upwards in a vertical direction. The exterior steel plate walls were welded to create a massive wall surface.
