Office Building of Beijing Foreign Studies University
The traditional dormitory is maintained as well as a 7-story slab used as office spaces and a 2-story building containing conference function are added on north and south side of the site. Attached with grey tiles, the old brick walls continue their classic style. The small dorms are enlarged to accommodate modern requirements. The additional expressed structural framework features floor-to-ceiling windows to the south to ensure enough sunlight. Projecting outward, the flat concrete box makes itself floating above the grey wall of conference part.
