Situated at the southern foot of Wuyun Mountain by the Qiantang River, there is a unpretentious and unique residential projec.
With such green trees to hide, it seems as if to escape from the metropolitan and live in nature.
The architectural plan was designed by David Chipperfield-the British Pritzker Prize winner. It features a quiet valley and surrounding forest, and arranges 12 houses in the forest in the form of chess. This residence hidden in the woods gives people an original non-experienced residential experience. Based on the principle of retreating to the nature and restoring the essence of life, Designer has completed the internal space design of its residences by turning complexity to simplicity.
This is the exploration of living space and consideration of slowing down the pace of life. Facing the current commercial society, we have too much passivity. We are stylized, consumed, and guided for some reason. We all seem to be looking for something, but back In the past, many may not be our true intentions. We hope to create a habitat where we can relax and rethink freely, and leave a perceptual experience and memory for all people in this environment. Here, life appears to be pure and simple, getting rid of all impetuous hustle and bustle, and being quiet in nature. QUANHONG ARCHITECT - ASSOCIATES advocates the design concept of no exaggerating decoration in living space, highlighting on space, and restoring the essence of life.
Designer has conducted a line-guided processing design for the lighting in the space, emphasizing the levels of spatial light and shadow combined with the nature, and a sense of extension of the space brought by the top lighting line. In the meanwhile, its delicate light distribution, using dots, lines and surfaces as the space to create the differences of the light effect, creating a sense of spatial hierarchy and meeting the daily needs of life.
The design focuses on the overall planning of the combination of soft and hard decoration in the space, giving vent to the beautiful vision of art and life in harmony, breaking the shackles brought by traditional boundaries, and pursuing a sense of transparency and architectural lines in visual effects.
Through the application of modern techniques and materials, a unique lifestyle is created. The clean and concise design and restrained attitude complete the integration with life, bringing out perfectly combined with the characteristics of the built environment.
The window and wall with large area of transparency allow you to see and enjoy the scenery everywhere. From the inside, it seems to be living in the forest. Even if you close the window, the surroundings are filled with the fresh smell of trees. This is the charm with the combination of space material and nature.
The overall environment emphasizes the thinking of the sense of space and the functionality of life, and the use of furniture and the transition of colors to make the space atmosphere more harmonious. A coconut chair blends with simplicity, and its good wrapping stems from its classic and unique shape. The texture of the material makes people feel inner peace after entering the space.
In the visual center of the living room, Designer adopts a spliced block sofa with a strong sense of architecture, which is presented with a coherent technique and language modeling, so that the space will not be divided into trivial parts. The simple and clear layout plan extends the visual effect of the space and enhance the sense of living experience.
The outer surface of each house is decorated with wooden grilles, which can be moved freely according to the requirements of lighting and privacy in different indoor functional areas. Experience another essence of beauty and comfort in the changing of light and shadow, which is fast and unpredictable.
The leisure area breaks the original pattern restrictions, integrates the space, recreates modern life, makes the public space smoother and more connected, plans a diversified life and residential experience, and creates more opportunities for family activities and emotional communications. Getting rid of the hustle and bustle of the city, and relishing from the wanton in the rest of the leisure.
The dining and kitchen area is made of a darker wood color, and the table legs are customized with acrylic, which visually enhances the depth of the space, showing the atmosphere of calmness and a sense of humor in suspension. The multiple applications of grille elements add the sense of layering and hazy beauty to the space.
The selection of chandelier has a strong sense of fashion and innovation, and the combination of table and chair features a delicate temperament, occupying a space of scenic spots, and enjoying the graceful scenery and light and shadow.
The kitchen is made by the German brand Bulthaup kitchenware, which demonstrates the simplicity of the Bauhaus concept and emphasizes humanity in a series of integrated cabinet systems. At the same time, the edge of the cabinet is delicate and the cut surface is smooth, and the low-key contains the exquisite and noble life yearning. Combined with the finely selected various kitchen utensils to form the experience with unique space quality.
The integrated shape of the bed of the master bedroom is also part of the space. The sense of boundary becomes vague owing to the simplified shape. The natural light and shadow of the grille interact with the immersive texture of the space, and the introverted tones are parallel and balanced. It caters to the fresh fragrance of trees in Wuyun Mountain, and incorporates bursts of poetry into every inch of life.
Space is not just a box that contains people and things in a morphological sense, but can provide a certain emotional communication and carry and contain the memories of the past life. The customization of the cloakroom shows the owners preferences by using the transparency of the glass. It is convenient and full of happiness. The change of light outside the window and the reflection of the glass make the space full of dynamic beauty.
The back of the cabinet adopts mirror-surface material as an embellishment, which visually enhances the richness of the space. The selection of the island platform display echoes the space material, creating a visual center point in the space and perfectly showing the concept of artistic life.
When most people dream of owning their own residence in a prosperous city, Jiu Shu has gone the other way to create a home in the woods. Let each house exist independently in the mountains and forests, breathe freely without interfering with each other.
Despite the fact that tranquility is the keynote of this places life, there are infinite hidden gardens here. Life should be like this, less impetuous, find your own meaning in the limited life and move on firmly.
