Live in ‘The Hills’

Chinese firm, MAD Architects, have got a mad good idea. They’ve designed a luxury high-density residence that mirrors the hills of the coastal city of Beihai, China.

The building doesn’t look like your average waterfront condo. Its thin and long with huge circles cut out of the middle of the structure to maximize natural lighting and the views of residents. This helps to better integrate the waterfront and the rest of the city, rather than blocking one from the other.

Taking inspiration from traditional Chinese architecture’s focus on nature, you can now live ‘in the hills’ without having to be a nomad.
