Interior Design

In order to meet contemporary life requirements and preferences of different people as well as maximize space utility, we take advantage of reconfigurable furniture. We could easily change limited space into family cinema and dinner party room by changing the location and shape of furniture. For instance, we use separate sofa, folding table and mobile folding screen.

Landscape

Landscape Layout

The house is surrounded by water, with a pool in the southeast, white sand (a metaphor of water in traditional culture) in the north, and river-like road in the west.

Spatial Design

The main source of inspiration comes from traditional Chinese poems, with highlights on a combination of curves and straight lines as well as an integration of hardness and softness. We are intended to bring you a masterpiece of Chinese landscape by emphasizing the spatial design. Narrow and winding roads are employed to give you the desire to explore the hidden main views.

The extension, penetration and hierarchy of landscape

By breaking through the boundaries of the site, we introduce the view of pear garden into our design. The doorway in front of the building is to present more elements in the hierarchical structure and more highlights in the leak through scenery. Meanwhile, as framed scenery, it makes different interpersed spaces to menetrate with each other and form an integrated opening one.
