Yaohua Wang architecture in China, has proposed ‘Beijing house II’, a single family residence located within a historical district in Beijing, China. Attached to an existing and retired factory building, the cantilevered structure utilizes the available air space above the street.
This design resists the recent prevalence of large scale residential towers.
This scheme also brings about new challenges because Beijing has frequent earthquakes and this design scheme suggests a big cantilever house, which is attached onto the exiting building. Therefore, to keep this in mind, a mechanical system is introduced to counteract a potential earthquake.
