Between The Silhouettes
“Between the silhouettes” is inspired by the silhouettes of the homeowner and his child as they play in the woods in the sun. The design uses existing pillars and beams in this 50-year-old building and spaces between cabinets to create seemingly spontaneous lines of sight and interactions, echoing the scenic view and arrangement of trees in the neighboring park.
By shifting and adjusting the layout with a circular flow, the common area retains some flexibility for potential changes in configuration. By slightly separating the cabinets from the ceiling and beams and creating some gaps, the design allows for the mingling of lines of sight and beams of light, improving both the natural lighting and ventilation in this space. There are shelves in the midsection of the cabinets for books or other decorative items on display, and some of the beams are designed with slight angles so that they appear less oppressive or overbearing.
The gaps that mingle between the beams and cabinets mimic the trees that are out in the park, bringing interactions and a sense of flow into the homeowner’s family life while accentuating the structural characteristics of the building. The open space and flow provide more freedom in the placement of different pieces of furniture, and the balcony, which is raised, becomes the family’s stage.
