Wishing to make daily lives closer to the natural environment, the couple has always been going in and out up in the mountains. That makes choosing Bitan’s scenery as a part of their daily lives a further step to appreciate and cherish each day of life at home more. Different from the usual and ordinary arrangement in the city residence, the design blurs out the division between spaces, introducing mountain scenery indoors and making it a part of the interior decoration. An open and spacious place with natural light shining through every corner is formed. Letting lives, light and shadow intertwine, becoming the best decoration indoors.
Fluidity of elegant lines with tidiness and brightness are the features of the whole space. With big windows opening up on the side, it introduces natural lighting and the landscape. The clean, fresh and bright quality of the study room decorated with the indoor plantation, perfectly echoes with the scenery outside the frame, the window. The study area therefore becomes a transition and connection between the indoor and the outdoor. A place that gets closer to the ever-changing details of the environment, of each season. As a peaceful corner with glass sliding doors as partitions, it allows the lighting to extend to the public area. While closing it, it can make it a place for mind to travel and spirit to rest at ease.
The greyish black tone of the walls frames up the living room. The fabrics of the sofa and carpets, fitting in perfectly, soften the atmosphere. Some metal embellishment is used here to spice up the space. The black mirror material covered on the beam corresponds to the hallway to the bedrooms, wonderfully drawing a line between the living room and the kitchen.
Inadvertently guides and indistinctly separates the space. In the private area, besides using achromatic colors to shape the simplicity and tidiness of the space, many other details make it much softer and smoother. The indirect lighting and warm colored lights change the atmosphere and make it much more lively.
With the concept of “borrowed scenery,” the designer successfully introduces nature into the frame and at the same time leads residents outside the frame. The extension of materials and textures perfectly connect both the study and the living room. While the dark colored shelving forms the kitchen space, a similar style of walls and door connects the corner, making it look spacious. The design breaks the boundary between indoor and outdoor, slowly making the residents fall in love with the time spent by the window, being relaxed and getting closer to the environment. The sense of ritual established through the design in between the public and the private space makes each everyday experience much worth looking forward to.
