Dongrun Apartment Building / Praxis d?Architecture

Songzhuang has received a continuous influx of young artists and art-related industries in past few years. The local courtyard homes are now largely leased to outsiders and are in high demand. The small and medium-sized apartments, office buildings, galleries, and small businesses have developed naturally to satisfy local demand. In contrast to government-backed integrated development projects, Song Zhuang?s new construction projects are often funded and managed by multiple private parties.  Dongrun Apartments is one such collective endeavor.

Text description provided by the architects. Songzhuang has received a continuous influx of young artists and art-related industries in past few years. The local courtyard homes are now largely leased to outsiders and are in high demand. The small and medium-sized apartments, office buildings, galleries, and small businesses have developed naturally to satisfy local demand. In contrast to government-backed integrated development projects, Song Zhuang?s new construction projects are often funded and managed by multiple private parties.  Dongrun Apartments is one such collective endeavor.  
Site Plan

The apartments are situated on the northeast corner of the roundabout alongside Songzhuang?s main thoroughfare.  The building extends 110 meters from East to West, and is 20 meters deep from North to South (entrance to rear).  The ground floor is comprised of galleries and businesses.  Apartments are located above and account for approximately two thirds of the building?s total floor area.

A facade module was created based on dimensions of a typical apartment unit.  This module has been repeated with in incremental increase on each subsequent floor so as to create a pattern that leaves the viewer a sense of movement.  The vertical division between the volumes of overhanging and the inverse-steps serves to clearly demarcate the boundaries between the building?s offices and two apartment sections.  Consequently, the building massing contains four sections: a ground floor and three high rise sections, whose division speaks to their differing contents.
