It seems that in China is very popular trilogy of Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren about Carlson. Anyway, that is a very visual confirmation – shopping center in the city of Zhuzhou, roof which there are four private houses.
Operated roof – a “fad” of modern architecture. Garden on the top of the building began in the last decade the most common. Sometimes on the roofs of large buildings even appear a little extra houses, as happened, for example, in the center of the company Strabag office in Bratislava . But in that case, this design is only decorative, but on the roof of the shopping center in the Chinese city of Zhuzhou appeared several quite dwellings.
Zhuzhou City is rapidly growing in breadth and upwards. Here and there there are new residential areas and skyscrapers. And that, to live in rural areas and work in the center of the town, and out of the question – too long distances have to overcome every day.
But planners Zhuzhou invented a highly original solution to create a rural area close to the business district of the metropolis. They are four private home right on the roof of an eight shopping center.
And this is not just a two-story private house, but small areas of space in front of them, where, if desired, it is possible to equip a kitchen garden or the garden. Living in a nice private house with a private garden close to work, shopping and all the city’s major attractions. Is this a dream?
One downside to this habitat, we think, is the constant noise that is generated HVAC shopping center located very very close to the cottages.
