Returning Hut Residence by Xu Fumin

Home > Winners > #52411


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Returning Hut

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residence

INSPIRATION:
Due to the client's longing for natural environment and original life, he has been wishing to own a paradise-like house in a valley far away from the city where he and his families could enjoy a quiet and leisurely life. The hut reflects the life attitude pursued both by the owner and designer: return to nature, be humble, simple, unadorned and pure. The essence of design is to weaken design, which means that the designer should forget about the design and even return to a state of void.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The site is located on a wild hillside surrounded by mountains and forests and facing the sea. Its geomorphic feature is unique and the surrounding environment is tranquil and peaceful. Built at the foot of the mountain and beside the forest, the hut hides in the valleys and retains and uses to the greatest degree the natural rocks and trees.The design style of the interior space is simple, elegant and natural, showing respect for nature.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The building is built on the hillside without destroying the original ecological environment. The stone is located in its original position, around which the entire master bedroom is designed according to different functions. The external walls of the building are artificial bricklaying of the old stone. The material and the natural landscape are in harmony and unity, making the dweller fully enjoy the nature, so as to achieve the original purpose of the design.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is located in Fujian, China. It is completed in 2015.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The plain wall is mainly made of natural materials such as bluestone, slate and solid wood etc. and without excess decoration. It reflects the essence of space and materials and presents a space where nature coexists with human. Through reasonable functional planning and use of simple lines and structures, and together with adopting simple and natural furniture as decoration in the space, a simple but cozy and warm living space is built.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The total area of the residence is 390 sqm.

TAGS:
hillside residence

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The key point of design is designless - let's forget about design or even reach the other side of void. When the design language and it's format retreat, the inner humanity and its reflection on the universe and life will be revealed. The man's spirit starts to observe beyond the material, and strikes directly the heart of the audience. It is a simple, humble, nature and pure lifestyle, therefore, the designer maximizes the retention and use of natural rocks and trees, merging occasionally and inevitability together. The monk said, 'living in mountain helps reach the Buddhahood, while living in cities helps create the hell.' Give oneself to the nature, and forget about the boundary between subjectiveness and objectiveness - every being can be the Buddha!

CHALLENGE:
Affected by factors such as construction conditions on the hillside, the special structures and construction period, etc., construction craft failed to reach the desired result and there are some flaws. Yet, on the whole, the completed hut reflects the life attitude pursued both by the owner and designer: return to nature, be humble, simple, unadorned and pure.
