Beijing 12 x 12 and 12 x 24 Prototye Housing Project

The Beijing 12 x 12 and 12 x 24 projects are prototype designs on the Doushi Gardens site of Beijing. Designed for a low-rise, medium density neighborhood, each floor is composed of two 12 x 24 m2 apartments. The design prioritizes natural ventilation through the apartments as each unit has three exposed elevations. Fenestrations on eastern and western facades are minimized to reduce heat gain in the summer.
