A Trip Through The Valley 穿越山谷之旅
The vision keeps moving in the space. Inspired by a painting by the Netherlandish printmaking master Escher, which is also the prototype for the game “Monument Alley” that sweeps around the world, our designers reinvigorates the old architecture of the 1980s, turning it into a private residence more for exhibition and non-daily living, and endowing it with a freer atmosphere.
There are many combinations of mathematical and geometric elements in architecture, like symmetry, circular arc, and the infinite space in Penrose theory, which are all applied in the interior lines. Geometric figures become the spatial lines and also patterns, connecting the whole space of three-dimensional and two-dimensional planes.
The staircase in the sitting room echoes the hidden staircase behind the bathroom in the corner, leading to the unknown space. The lines in the whole open space are staggered precisely and elegantly.
The color red that brings mental stimulation fills the whole space.
The striped rays of sunlight filtering through the shutter into the living room are the geometric textures of another dimension. In such a small space, intense colors bring a stronger visual impact, and cement tiles with cloud-shaped relief texture in bathroom make the whole space more dramatic.
The fluidity of character relationships is one of the aspects of interior design that we are concerned about very much. The interaction and penetration of sight and light are also presented in the space. Firstly, the multi-door setting of the old building creates more possibilities for characters to move in and out of the space; then in the living room, a window opening into the dining room is just high enough for the characters to stand and their sight is the level with the sight of characters on the sofa.
The human imaginations always stay out of space. It is only by simplifying inner space that the imagination towards the outer space can be expanded. The game between human and space exists forever. Only keep thinking makes it closer to eternity.
