Presenting a violent contrast with the traditional building styles alongside, the façade of this housing block consists of weathered steel. Its surface is composed of a number of separate panels, each with different rust tones, to create a patchwork effect. With its 'shipyard' industrial aesthetic, the structure carves out a unique visual identity.
