The green residency that sits next to the mountains and the river features a mixed style of Japanese and Nordic style. With the application of natural elements and the reduction of accessories, the designer conveys the spiritual characteristics of the residents through displaying their artworks. The use of diverse building materials, furniture, and lighting creates an artistic and cultural lifestyle. The huge unique floor-to-ceiling windows bring the panoramic view into the space, letting it become a part of everyday life. The designer creates a livable house with a healthy environment, and uses the surrounding landscape to achieve physical and mental relaxation.
As soon as entering the hallway, the entire public space is fully revealed at a glance. The living room and the kitchen separated by the white beam and wooden hallways sit on the two sides of the room. The space is clean and bright with natural light shines in. On the right side, the cool tone from the gray and white tiles on the floor creates a sense of elegance, while dark wooden colors are applied in the spacious living room and the study on the left to set off a relaxing atmosphere. The sofa in the living room echoes the upper beam, visually widening the space. The open plan is ingeniously arranged and the necessary furniture is perfectly placed to separate different sections without any walls.
The public area with its gray-white color palette and touches of wooden and earthy colors creates a refreshing cleanness. The use of wood in the study softens the atmosphere, and the organic wood makes the space more flexible and smoother. The large wooden bookcase at the rear provides enough space for art and book collections, and also echoes the TV wall, creating a symmetrical and harmonious visual effect and improving the comfort level.
The design of the window side can also be seen in the study and the bedrooms. Except for saving electricity, the big windows with beautiful views keep the eyes away from artificial lights and electronic products, the residents can enjoy the vigorous beauty from nature, and the ray of sun that lights up the space. The intentionally blank space in the living room is reserved for the residents, where they can truly express their artistry. The open plan guides the light to the kitchen and the use of mirrors in the dining room elevates the space, allowing the beautiful scenery outside to come in and be part of the interior.
The natural light introduced by the windows dances with the shadows throughout the day, interweaving the ever-changing pattern in the space, and alongside the indirect warm lightings, the light in the space appears soft and natural. The setting of multiple balcony windows keeps the airflow fluid. Through this project, one can live in nature and enjoys the comfortable and cozy space, while getting rid of the hustle and bustle of urban life, and makes every day at home worth enjoying.
