Fits to its historical context formulated in beginning of 20’s in centre part of Nanjing city, Slit house express itself in harmony with surroundings in the new form of concrete facade.
The entire structure & facade even roof are made from concrete with 5cm horizontal wood textile strip which shares the same scale with neighbor buildings of brick built almost 100 years ago.
Even we used almost half of world’s cement in China; Slit house is the first real concrete building in Nanjing, the city which built also 1300 high rise concrete structure towers in last 25 years.
