This case is a single-story house with a terrace. The living members are simple, and the space is mainly for serving retired couples. Therefore, the primary design is to provide multi-faceted and perfect functions for them. On the one hand, according to the existing conditions of the space, we built a leisure and communion proposal close to the users' preferences. For example, there are an open living room and restaurant for family and friends to have a banquet, a combined Japanese-style room and tea tasting room that can enjoy the outdoor landscape, an altar for folk deities that carefully reflect the traditional virtue for paying careful attention to the funeral rites to parents recall forefathers, and a master bedroom with a compound moving line like an executive suite. On the other hand, we also modeled a private apartment with outstanding, stable, and humanistic intellectual through natural material selection, low-key color performance, and harmonious proportion.
The whole territory planning took the retiring house as the primary axis, so it improved the exclusive orientation of its space users. Unlike ordinary families, many people live together, the needs of different age groups from elders, young adults, or young children may be relatively insignificant. After entering the house, there is no standard partition, and we directly incorporated the entryway into the public domain. In this way, the vision can reach the barrier-free and abundant daylighting of the window view, which enlarges the sense of space. We put a round table in an open area of the dining room and the living room side by side, which hopes not only convenient for the operation of the sweeping robot but also creates a broad and comfortable welcoming environment for guests. We used the ceiling, floor, and wall of the house with better-blended colors like ivory white, warm black gray, and light rice gray for deepening the base color, and even some different materials such as rock brick, black glass, and iron parts, combined with gentle indirect light to strengthen the three-dimensional level. Between the difference between the advance and retreat of the facade and the lively modeling structure of functional hardware, it shows the beauty of depth penetration with a sense of stability and the faint intersection of virtual and real.
The homeowners prefer space with a sense of calm, plainness, and texture, so we used the materials natural, healthy, easy to clean and maintain, and have good weather resistance for the design. For example, the TV wall in the living room is made of rough-textured slate tiles, deliberately dislocated up and down to give the cold and hard materials an appropriate sense of rhythm. We also integrated the necessary electrical and mechanical pipelines in the wall in advance to keep the appearance of the wall clean and tidy.
We arranged the kitchen, dining room, entrance, and living room four units in sequence on the central axis of the house. The lighting surface of the adjacent window centered on the living room, and both sides planned the altar for folk deities and the Japanese-style room for tea tasting. In this way, we formed a T-shaped moving line with all-around living, leisure, and communion functions.
We stretched 90 degrees along the partition wall between the restaurant with a round table and the kitchen. Besides the black glass sliding door leading to the independent kitchen, we applied a gray color gradient of iron-gray stacking light-gray to other walls. We also integrated the three hidden doors leading to the guest bath, the master bedroom, and another bedroom to deal with the low-key and concealed boundary between the public and private fields at one time.
The long spans from the altar for folk deities, the living room to the Japanese-style room are all floor-to-ceiling doors or large windows bordering the outdoors. In addition to installing high-quality soundproof and airtight windows and doors, the borders are also specially strengthened to prevent leakage. The ceiling shape is interspersed with indirect light, and the airspace of the restaurant is equipped with concealed air-conditioning equipment. We especially combined with segmented trench treatment, used the deep and shallow trenches with different widths to relieve the heaviness of plate pressing as much as possible.
