Projet Description

Reorganizing the layout, redefining the space and integrating the needs of the owner and imagination of the space, the designer takes Le Corbusier's Five Points of Architecture as the starting point and apply them in interior design to create Free Design of the Facade, Free Design of the Ground Plan, Horizontal Windows and Roof Garden; As for the Pilotis, the designer transforms it to the extension of the ceiling height, setting the general direction of the design concept.
The designer’s primary goal is to solve daylighting problem based on her keen sensation of light and the understanding of material and color. The designer sets the study room in the middle of the space to introduce light and makes the interior sufficiently bright. Dark gray color and light natural paint are used to divide the space into upper and lower layer. Use contrast to guide residents to develop their thinking. The main color tone of the outdoor is brought to the study room, extending to the living room. Wood and rattan are used to create the sense of calmness for the low ceiling. Privacy and ventilation are taken into consideration as well, separating the study room and living room.
Materials used in the house including wood and paints are all eco-friendly materials with EEWH certification. Natural paints are used to reveal the real texture. The space is well ventilated and can be cooled naturally.
Through the understanding of the past to imagine the future, one can create the future only after he understands the past. With the new understandings of Le Corbusier's Five Points of Architecture, extend it to interior space planning, then connect the times through the understanding of material. What design changes is not reality but thoughts, and only thoughts can change reality. Therefore, understanding the past, feeling the present and change the reality are what we can do for future generations.
