【Design Statement】: The design of the space focuses on the expression of continuity, through transitions and extending the aesthetics of visual contrast, eliminating structural stress through perfect ratios. The unique taste and character of the homeowners are embodied through their behavior patterns. For the interior design of a 393m2 (119 pings), 4-story single building, the design team used the linear element of solid wood grille above the garage to respond to the exterior of the building. This is consistently extended to the multimedia room on the first floor, where the ceiling and walls use the “capillaries” (xylem) of the weathered wooden veneer itself, together with the staggered layers of lighting, to tastefully suggest the gentle mood of clouds with geometric imagery. The layout is designed to absorb sound, along with insulation and diffusion effects to meet the desired audio-visual needs of the homeowners. In terms of spatial design and functional segmentation, the design team adeptly took advantage of the spacious 12-meter-long building length to open up the function of the living room, dining room, center island and kitchen areas along the same axis. The continuous windows and linear ceiling、floor heating design deepen and widen the visual appeal and grandeur of the main space. The back wall behind the sofa is composed of thin stone slabs, and the back is defined by hidden doors and storage rooms, as well as ample storage capacity. The open public area is designed to accommodate 5 to 60 people at the same time, satisfying the homeowner’s need for receiving guests, while also leading to a tranquil and beautiful outdoor scenery, complementing the leisurely and enriched taste of life. 【Idea】:Deconstruction: Reflecting the Real and Virtual Architecture can be said to be the sum of the parts connected by nodes. The relationship between nodes exists in materials, proportions, light and shade, and color, in the subtle relationship of exclusion or mutual attraction, and is expressed through integration or concealment, giving it a tangible creation and vitality. To integrate the staircase from the 1st to 4th floor, the designer used grille lines paired with stainless steel and glass interfaces, supplemented by linear strip lighting, to create a floating and light appeal. The side of the building is also designed in the form of a glass house with a constant temperature wine cellar to enrich the living function and manifest personal taste at the same time. The staircase is decorated with thin slabs of colorful stone and linear light strips, extending the impression of the building’s sleek and stylish design language. As an interface derived from various materials, in the nodes or color sequences, interlaced and juxtaposed with the corresponding layers of light and shadow, emphasizing the continuity from point to line and plane, and at the same time becoming a perfect expression of the fusion of different materials and mosaic art, so that when the eyes stop at any angle in the space, one can feel the vertical and horizontal tension between the real and the virtual.
