Blockhouse which illuminates like a luminary: AZL architects


Blockhouse is a construction by AZL architects, in Nanking (Chinese People’s Republic). The house seems to be composed of five parallelepipeds with rounded cutouts and perforations inside. It is a private dwelling house, which has a unique construction thanks to the ingenuity of architects. In the hours of darkness the house turns into a giant luminary that illuminates the surrounding area. Pseudo perforation is used as decorative elements of the interior, for example, in one of the toilets. The first and second floors of Blockhouse serve as rooms for daytime stay, whilst bedrooms are on the upper levels. The roof of the house in fact is another living room with a pool and a wooden terrace.
