Beijing Grasse Town S2 Villa
The concept of the project originates from the French blue coast of the southern town of Glasgow. This century-old town is located in the Provence-Alps-blue coastal region of the coastal Alps, near the hills, quiet valley looming, and meandering country roads. In the middle, there is a calm flow stream called Saipa. On the other side of the river bank, there are roses and a jasmine field named le petit campadieu. The meaning in French "God's small camp" is the world's most famous perfume raw materials supply ground. Here the land is rich, beautiful environment, warm climate, picturesque, four seasons filled with sunshine, and flowers. The greenhouse is full of the fragrance of orchids, jasmine and rose throughout the year.

After we received the project, we conducted in-depth analysis of it and proposed the intention of style and character style positioning. It took 10 months from the design, on-site review, accessory customization, site layout, and later adjustment. It took 6 months for the foreign customization segment due to the tight circle of time. In order to attach cultural value and historical value to the project, we offer aroma distillation, French afternoon tea, whiskey and other topics, for which we find and purchase suitable accessories around the world, including in Las Vegas exhibitions and search decoration manually and return with a few boxes of accessories from Guangzhou, Dongguan, Beijing, Italy, Shanghai, with the cooperation of different suppliers to complete the fabric selection and final production.
The original building space part of the living room for the high design is too long and not beautiful, so in the design, we recommended a floors lab in the living room above the floor, semi-styling, so that the second floor of the study space is added. The living room space height increased by 45 cm . Then we made an angle to the floor slab in design so as to maintain the integrity of the window due to the increase of the floor has the same height as the window.
