terracotta facade

Terracotta panel and glass are used as the curtain walls for the facades. LOPO 18mm-thick and 450mm-long natural surface terracotta panels are used in this project. The facade’s lines are flowing because windowsills, eves and curved wings are decorated with terracotta panel that are specifically cut and assembled. In the sunlight, the apricot color and rigidity of terracotta panels radiate a sense of majesty.
