Reality in Space
The space itself leaves a lot of extra surprises to the design, preserving a lot of the texture of the building itself, and the exposure of some architectural structures, metals and pipes is a casual, natural state we want to express, with changes in time and temperature.
The lusterless, cold and warm presence of cement cannot be categorized as a "hard" material such as diamond, nor as a "soft" material such as cotton, which absorbs and regulates the moisture and temperature in the air and calms the state of space.
When the space is peeled back, the original concrete top surface is naturally preserved, the surface texture texture expression with concrete, seeing every detail poured during the construction period, the dun luster, recording time and story, the trowel scraped wall, recording the birth of the space, together with the original state constitutes an immersive experience.
The preference for industrial decoration may come from the expression of individuality, when, thanks to industrialization, individuals are able to break away from the tedious labor to pursue a more individual expression, while at the same time creating a cult for mechanical structures.
Metal or iron or stainless steel parts, exposed welds, adapters and whole rows of lined-up pipes, originally hidden in space, exist in linearity with confidence and order.
The square steel standing upright in the space carries more visual intersections, giving it a green appearance, either as an integration of nature or a language of a sense of life. The organic and natural changes of space, the combination and interplay of materials are perceived in the wandering.
Time, tide, sunrise and sunset, breath, walking pace, the sense of rhythm of space. When the wall blocking the space is opened, the flow of air and light is opened up, and when the humidity of the air changes, the light and shadow flow with it.
The integration of curves naturally produces a rhythm of space, softening the line of march, and the steel and concrete space produces a touch of flexibility and rhythm, permeating emotion and rhythm. The sculpture is hidden in the view, the change of rhythm and the staccato of space, the sudden turn, the articulation, and the new spatial experience, and the blank place outside of the rhythm is the space of breathing.
Crystals grow out of the stone, seemingly hard, but in fact a flexible life force. The square tube of metal becomes a body in space, a sculpture dormant on the ground.
Live as you wish, live far away.
"The world is gradually moving away from complexity and pursuing a rationality and so-called 'simplicity' that combines material, function and form at the shortest distance. In addition to personal expression, the space is placed into various settings of trying and experiencing life, and fragmented attempts are made to experience life.
The through water bar is connected to the living room space to become a whole space for easy gathering, meeting, gathering, watching movies, and YOLO time in life. Enjoy your own life time by cooking in the open kitchen and exercising in the separate fitness room.
The time spent exploring at home is also a process of self-knowledge, of detaching from the shell and digging authentically and naturally into a certain state of being that you enjoy and prefer in your daily life.
Looking back and feeling the accumulation and change of time, the ultimate expression of decoration and furnishing in this personalized residential space is left to the owner.
