Modern Brick Home Design with Dotted Façade in Nanjing, China

To honor the long tradition of local brick makers, the architects at Atelier Zhanglei has built the house and brought it into the next level of contemporary brick house design. This gorgeous home is exceptional at the first sight, in the inside and to the impression you can get at the first sight. The creative dotted brown façade welcomes the guests at the front. Two asymmetrical volumes are dotted in an intriguing way, so when guests are lead by the brick patio to the entrance, they would understand that they would enter an extraordinary place. Once inside, the guests would find that the same color is used extensively in the interior design, but the difference is that the tone is obtained via wooden furniture, wood ceiling and flooring. The result is a home that follows its long neighborhood tradition in Nanjing, China. But there’s also one room which is designed in more formal style with its white coloring.
