You Are What You Live
With a discerning owner, we should definitively expect the house he resides to be equally fascinating. His passion in fashion, Chinese poetry and orient culture play a huge part in the design process of this residential condo, where we attempt to reflect his myriad of different interests. The floor plan draws direct inspiration from the traditional Chinese architectural concept, which sees a house composed of a main building, a courtyard and different wings. The inside portion of the condo is conceptually considered as part of the building overall. Other parts of the house like the living room, kitchen and the dining area are the main components, through which connects a corridor that leads into the wing, where the master bedroom locates. We apply the same structural concept on the way to the daughter’s room, which finds itself nestled up to the main portions of the condo along with a courtyard study. The classically inspired building concept again finds itself behind the pitched roof structure in the living room, dining room, and the kitchen, as well as the roof tiles for the courtyard study. Traditional Chinese symbols are now reinterpreted and served as designs of window grills and handles, with wood and fabric thrown into the mix to add a touch of warmth. For the kitchen, we select reflective material to work in conjunction with natural light for a inverted mirror effect, which is yet again a callback of traditional Chinese landscaping. It is no secrets that we design this residential condo based on elements and ideas that are both old and new. For a owner of deep knowledge and passion into arts and culture, we want the building to represent his passion, but also to show the possibility that aesthetics of the past and present can indeed coexist harmoniously under the very same roof.
