Stroll in the room
And experience the day and night of each season in the house.
Intoxicated in the visible quality of natural material and the design of subtraction,
The agile steps gracefully link the spaces up and down.
The lazy sunlight sprinkling on the platform
Is attracted by the trace of branches and leaves in front of the window.
One may steps on the rocks barefoot,
Touches the newborn leaves with both hands,
And Seeks for the fragrance of fruit from the distant place.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
In a new feature situated the original soul.
From an angle of extensive view, looking down at the street pieced with points, lines and planes.
Enter the door and slow down the pace, listen quietly in the silent dialogue.
The unadorned stone and green hue matching with the gentle timber
With each coldness and warmth stops the time and returns to the nature.
Through the intertexture of light and tree shadow which won’t fade away in the deriving of days.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The house layout deployment is very simple and neat, where the public and private fields are clearly separated. Taking into consideration the future use of the house owner, several rooms located on the first floor are removed to create a spacious and comfortable field. The upper and lower level guest rooms are also connected to create a high-ceiling staircase hall, and the curved style of the spiral staircase is used to soften the rigid lines of the hall. As for the circulation, the door originally located at the center of the front porch is moved to the right of the building connecting with the staircase hall so that the people walking inside become more relaxed with this change of circulation.
