A Cross Pattern Covers This Facade Made From Precast Concrete

Architecture firm dmvA has designed the House of Lorraine, a multi-residential building in Mechelen, Belgium, that showcases a cross-pattern facade.

The cross-pattern facade of this modern buidling is made from pre-cast concrete and due to the design of the building, it's located between two other materials - white plaster and aluminum slats. #ModernArchitecture #ModernBuilding #PatternedFacade

At night, the light from within the apartments highlights the pattern and helps to create a shadow effect.

Inside the building, the cross pattern allows the natural light to travel through, but at the same time provides privacy from people passing by.
