Platinum and Stone Sentiment
This project is the plan for a single-story residence with an actual indoor area of around 110 square meters. The first step of the plan is based on the house owner’s living needs, starting with adjusting the indoor layout and circulation, including enlarging the kitchen, as well as combining the axis for the central island, the dining table and the dining area for the benefit of daily operations for the female owner who loves baking and is good at painting. Secondly, the partitioning wall between the study (one of the four rooms) and the corridor is removed, thereby shortening the corridor, as well as opening up the sense of vision to endow the space with the most rational application and sense of openness.
The male owner is a manager in the hi-tech industry, who is a collector of Lego model cars and limited edition trendy shoes; the female owner is an artist specializing in baking, even their children are full of creativity growing under such environment. A family like such certainly has a particular preference towards the household style, therefore, the inspiration of this design project is how calm and orderly linear aesthetics can blend perfectly with sensuous and romantic elegant light classics.
To create a rational and majestic spatial tone, the main wall in the living room and the tabletop of the dining table all selected the marvelous Spanish marble to reflect the outdoor greenness and the indoor lights and shadows in a low-profile way. The high central island bar in the dining area is in fact a three-way cabinet design, it is the highlight with exclusively ingenious details; the looks constructed with thin slate panels is primitive yet elegant, which is integrated with multiple functions including wine cabinet, two-layer dining ware drawers, electrical appliance cabinet, etc., while the suspended metallic glass rack in rose gold color above provides a splendid dining sentiment to the dining room.
The smooth and bright marble wall in the living room, as well as the sophisticated titanium-plated decorative strips on the ceiling form a different style yet harmonious interesting correspondence with the end view wall in the dining room and the sofa back wall, which are decorated with classical and elegant frames. The private zones adopted thematic colors to define the different bedrooms. For instance, the warm grey color in the master bedroom, the skin color in the girl’s room, as well as the neutral grey and soft white colors for the boys’ rooms with double beds all vividly imply the personalities of the owners.
Religion is a vital loop in the life of many people, and it all depends on the designer’s imagination and integrative ability on how to blend the spiritual power of religion or aesthetic symbolizations into space. The foyer in this project is the visual example with the religious wall as the main theme, where on the stone tabletop resembling a shrine stands the martial king statue with majestic posture, complementing the wooden grills on the sides as well as the dark-colored slate wall in the opposite, where the calming frequency provides the effect of keeping the house safe and soothing the spirit.
The coatings used on the sofa back wall, the dining room end view wall and the high cabinet in the foyer are of simulated frosted texture in pale grey color, which features the most complicated craftsmanship details in the entire project. The principle is similar to the preparation of high-molecule mortar, except the granules are replaced with ultra-fine sand to blend into the undercoat; although it is not as smooth as spray paint, it provides a lasting taste with temperature and elegance.
