大雄設計 – 林政緯
The cruise ship sails alongside the mountain ridge in the city center, gazing at the landscape. Traveling between day and night, a space of home turns into a place with an ever-changing view. Taking “voyage” as the core concept, the designer combines technology and handicraft to create wavy surfaces, curved lines, customized mechanisms, and flexible space utilizations. Integrating projection mapping, scenarios, artworks, the design breaks the common impression of a residence with its fluid curves, dynamic light and shadow.
Focusing on interpreting the owner’s memory towards sailing, the whole space is designed without sharp turns and corners, yet full of curved and flowing lines from ceiling to walls. Compound stone walls, terrazzo floors, curved glass panels of cabinets and titanium plating sliding doors, are all the results of careful measurement and repetitive modeling. With white tone as the basic color, the space takes in different palettes of the changing seasons throughout the year. While the night comes, fluid design languages become the most elegant charm in the house. Technology and art combined contribute to a night light show, a visual feast that is second to none.
An open floor plan of public and private areas are expanded by barrier-free flow and sights, guiding residents to different areas, enjoying different layers of the cityscape. Flexible arrangement and functional mechanism contribute to a customized open floor plan. For example, the shoe racks at the entrance are equipped with rollers under, one can thus easily scroll it out for use. As for the study, it is a flexible space with wooden folded doors and steel sliding doors for different utilization. While keeping it open, the study extends till the living room with an open view. While maintaining it closed with the doors, each area, the study, the living room and the guest room becomes individual private space. The hidden drop down TV on the ceiling of the master bedroom allows the owner to enjoy the cityscape without any barrier. In addition, since the whole space is designed with environment transitions, lights and curtains can be automatically modified at any time to solve the issue of insolation.
Applying projection mapping to interior design of a living space, the designer has to customize an automatic hidden device in the wall and to calculate carefully the projecting area, so the images can get projected perfectly on the irregular 3-dimensional curvy ceiling. A well-balanced visual perception at each corner creates a unique and fluid movement, a flowing aesthetic. Working with audio-visual equipment, the owner can therefore change the setting instantly, from a sea with sun glitter to a night sky with all the shiny stars. By setting up different environmental details, one can create a special taste of the living space based on one’s habits and preference.
