DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Bring Nature Home for Kids

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Building

INSPIRATION:
It all begins with the Waldorf education system. The system is characterized as being close to nature, advocating sensory learning, emphasizing creativity and art, and encouraging children to lean toward the earth. From kindergarten to home environment, the owner strives to adopt this concept thoroughly, filling the house with natural materials such as logs, shells, stones, leaves, allowing children to explore freely, feel the texture of the wilderness, and learn to appreciate the beauty of natu

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project is a 4-floor Chinese-garden-themed residential interior design for a family of six, a multilayered space interlaced with landscape, natural elements, and huge amount of wood to soften the boundary in between men-built and nature. Through the delicate application of borrowing, framing, and blocking techniques, a much larger picturesque haven is embodied in this limited space.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Starting from the ground floor, a public area with two outdoor space connected with a huge window and a floor-to-ceiling door, introducing the outdoor landscape and daylight in, merging the interior and the exterior into one unified space of lush experience. The main bedroom on the 1st floor is placed with a huge real wood bedframe, with a matching wooden end table kept in its natural form. The kids’ room on the 2nd floor is equipped with a customized solid wood bunk bed, and the narrow walkway outside the study room is carved and window-framed in Chinese style.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Built in February, 2016 in Taichung City, Taiwan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Flooring to furnishing, the interior space is exhaustively real wood dependent with the pursuit of zero waste, eco, and consistency. The dining table and the bed frame of the master bedroom are made of lumber, minimalizing the processing to cut, shape, and frame. The height of the furniture is customized in the purpose of encouraging young ones to explore freely, safely, and thrillingly. The height of the yard pond is deliberately reachable to kids, which is the same height as the low cabinet beside the window, once again, blurring the boundary between the in and out.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Four-floor building with 228 square meters indoor and 111 square meters outdoor, including 1 living room, 1 dining room, 1 kitchen, 1 master bedroom, 2 bedrooms, 1 working room, 2 outdoor gardens, 1 semi-outdoor roof garden.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Some say western garden is focused on control over the nature, whereas oriental garden embraces the nature with elegance, and compared to the minimalism and Zen of Japanese design, the Chinese one emphasizes creating layers of scenery through obscured arrangements. Throughout the property, the Chinese methods of borrowing, framing, and blocking are applied in an understated style, enriching the interior by adding the outdoor to it.

CHALLENGE:
In a refurbishment residential project where the structure and layout must remain intact, creating something beyond the dimensions is the biggest challenge of all. Aside from huge glass windows and sliding doors, solid walls were hollowed and replaced with wooden shelves to become light-permeable with capacity, and iron grills were applied as partition in the same manner. Being part of the landscape, the outdoor plantings also function as the blocking barrier to adjacent buildings to maintain privacy and the scenic cleanliness.
