Fei Architects designs apartment block that frames residents' daily lives in Guangzhou



The Borderless Community of Zi Ni Twelve Portals is a housing project in Guangzhou, China, designed by Fei Architects to show off its occupants.
Located in Zi Ni Tang Park, the renovation project, which has been shortlisted for Dezeen Awards 2020, carved out wide windows and balconies with a variety of material finishes.
The facade is covered in balconies

A 1.5-metre wide slab concrete structure was added to create external balconies and corridors. Perforated brick screens, half walls, glass bricks and porthole windows create framing devices for the occupants to see and be seen by each other and passersby.
