The landscape with a train speeding through a field of reeds etches an abstract painting of memory. The same nostalgic sedimentation of pigments fills the scent of grass in the air, the candle lights coming from a house in the night, and the first light that breaks through the summer night.
The image of a home includes the life in the native family and the delightful journey far away. These sweet memories constitute the totality of a warm, safe, and comfortable home.
The owner is a young designer who celebrates the juxtaposition of classical and modern elements. A series of perforated folding panels and the irregular division of floor patterns demarcate a porch space. Here the artistic styling of the chairs and paintings on the wall suggests the alternative role of the house as a gallery. The six-meter-long brick wall in the living room integrates the living and dining areas. The manner of continuity expands the transversal vision with a prominent figure in sight. The living room couch and the study occupy the same plane, while the dining room, the kitchen, and bar counter become its counterpoint, a simultaneous presence of the shared space and separate areas in the house. The materiality of metal and woods reveals the stability of a brown datum, in which different shades of the gradient allocate the functionality of each component. Fusing reflective elements with a metropolitan industrial atmosphere present an unexpected yet amusing articulation of the seemingly polarized conflicts.
