With a focal concept of “Luxury from the Heart,” this design reconfigures public and private areas, designating over half of the property’s square footage for public space and connecting areas that are most frequently used by the family. To respond to the homeowners’ mantra of “less is more,” the design utilizes warm and simple materials and incorporates the imagery of woods, distant mountains, and flowing streams into the ceilings, floors, and walls, constructing a Shangri-La-esque space that makes you forget about the worries of the world. The private areas are planned in a way that focuses on the inner respite upon homecoming, using colors and furniture selection to materialize the concept of “self” and allowing family members to rest in a space that’s closest to themselves.
Given the front balcony has sufficient lighting and ventilation, the design is able to achieve excellent lighting and air circulation by connecting the fully open Buddhist worship area, the study room with grille walls, the living room and dining room, which are both interconnected, with the kitchen and balcony in the back. The entryway and kitchen’s entrance are organized together using a double-arch gray wall, which evokes the imagery of a cave, giving the living room and dining room more independence, while the staggered beams and pillars are integrated into the storage space and ceiling with soft curves. The elevated design of the worship area gives off an air of sanctity and independence. In the public areas, the dark wooden walkway, which symbolizes a flowing stream, demarcates the separation between the living room and dining room while leading to the private bedroom doors.
