Fuse with Cat Small Residential Interior by Mushroom Design Studio Ltd.

Home > Winners > #66786


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Fuse with Cat

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Small Residential Interior

INSPIRATION:
The design of this interior was inspired by a cat of the client. The fundamental purpose of our design was to create harmony between this cat and its owner. A cat had always been the minority of a human household in most cases. Our queries on how we could overturn this inertial thinking became our motivations of creating a space that paid more attention to the well-being of the life of a cat. This space was thus designed through the study of the activities, habits and daily routines of a cat.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
With the prerequisite of a large amount of storage, while unblocking daylights from existing partitions, this 50-square-meter flat with a ceiling height of 2.55 meters was completely redefined into an open plan. Resting spaces, storage for human, while cat walks for animal together with good ventilation and natural daylight outlined the prime features of this project. Angled walls and false-ceiling were formed to induce light and shadows effects to visually increase the sense of space.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The open plan created a warm and family-like atmosphere. Efficient communications were planned to happen in this open kitchen setting. While the owner utilized only one side of the dining on a daily basis, the opposite side could be used by guest with the sofa allocated to the other side of the room. The dining table was designed for more than 8 people. Further, light well on the side wall served as a platform for the owner to monitor their cat from one side of the space to the other.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was in Macau Started in June 2015 to March 2016

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Studies on the habits of both the owners and the cat were made. Comfort, visibility, interaction and safety had to be ensured for the coexistence of men and cat within the space. Locations of furniture, TV wall, kitchen and glass partition were under our consideration to design for such requirements. Windows were in particular designed to a certain height to keep the cat out of reach, and yet create a dynamic flow of air for a pleasant living environment.

CHALLENGE:
To accommodate a concealed ventilation and air conditioning unit within the 2.55 meter height ceiling; while keeping the cat happy by providing him a high level hide away space had been the strive for design balance. Partial inclined false ceiling as well as slanted vertical plains were used to incorporate the Air conditioning system with its air ducts and water pipes. Upright space was spared out for proper lighting design and to compose decent cat walks at ceiling level.
