Perfect Zero aims to provide a maximum view and create an interaction with the natural scenery for residing artists while keeping them safe and warm in an indoor environment during the Winter. This is achieved by placing blocks of bedrooms, bathrooms and other private programs inside a glass box.
The vertical layout with shifting program blocks creates pockets of space that can potentially hold exhibition for art pieces of variable dimensions. A series of exhibitions going up will also bring visitors up to the higher floors to promote interaction with the residing artists.
