頤樂 The Happy Retiring Home
The actual area of this case is about 23 pings. Although the house type is quite square, the original layout is not well-lit, and the sense of space is greatly affected. Therefore, the first step in planning was to adjust its composition and flow line. Designers first integrated the kitchen with the living and dining room, shaping the large scale and wide depth of field and improving the smoothness of movement and the function of complementary sharing in one action. In addition to maintaining independent privacy in the master bedroom, we changed the rest of the study and the Japanese-style room that belong to the light facing side with transparent glass sliding doors replacing the part partition wall to introduce outdoor natural light into the room.
To assist the client couple, who loves life, can enjoy the retirement life at will. Designers took inspiration from the Japanese style that users love to select natural materials with warm and natural qualities. They include a light-toned veneer, wooden floor, gray and white stone grain, and a small amount of glass and mirror surface to match the decoration of the neat-line structure and subtractive thinking. We carefully engraved the bright and healing happy retiring home temperature.
We purchased two massage chairs in the living room to replace the traditional sofa, which has a clear exclusive direction. In the kitchen area, we specially designed a multifunctional high dining table to separate the dining room and the kitchen work area to meet the diverse tastes of meal fun. And the free and comfortable field configuration can also simultaneously benefit relatives and friends who visit. Since the house is usually only occupied by the couple, the Japanese-style room and study can use as an extension of the public domain. There is a sofa bed in the study room, with an inner roller blind, which can be used as a guest room if necessary. We adopted the rich Japanese-style floor-raising design in the Japanese-style room. We also placed an electric lifting table in the middle for tasting tea in free time and designed all lift storage under the wooden floor, adding practical functions to the room. In addition to the Japanese-style room, we also adopted barrier-free facilities in the entire area to protect the elderly safety and avoid them tripping over.
We used structural recesses in the entryway to set up storage cabinets. Besides, the tawny glasses wall fixed on the part of the wall not only can absorb light and shadow and reflect the space but also can eliminate the presence of existing structural columns. The TV wall in the living room adopted a slightly asymmetrical facade division, interspersed with the change of advance and retreat of different materials and superimposed shapes, and the background light, which brings a sense of lively design. The horizontal line of sight is cleverly extended to the study to create a large-span scale momentum with the wall bookcase design. We also placed a cabinet compartment with the same height as the top between the master bedroom and the Japanese-style room. On the one hand, it maintains a complete sense of space and strives for the optimal effect of area efficiency.
