Home is somewhere that needs to be unobstructed and clear-sighted, while it is a place the God of our heart lives, whose name is Chang Liang. Same as the modern European living style, which emphasizes simplicity and brightness, it is also the main characteristic of design and construction of our case. Not only to make the house owner enjoy the blessing of sunrise and sunny award, but also to embrace the sunset and the ease to go back home.
The difficulty in design is to face the insufficiency of the beam height, and its patchwork. The space preplanning is premise, in order to correct the position of the beam, to guide the axis of the whole space, to set tones of different areas, thus to present the best arrangement in a limited void. Poets are magicians of words, as they could ‘design’ best poems with limited words. Interior space designers are magicians of spaces - they are able to present the most beautiful houses for house owners.
We are time travellers. Our track is from one space to the other, through switching modeling, settings, we show people where we are. The shape screen at the hallway, together with fence, is utilized to switch spaces. Cut in from the middle point of the public space, to mix cabinet body with the original structure, the seemingly extended couch background wall is switched to functional distinction. The openness and tortuousness of cabinet body, shape a progressive space conversion, it looks like a ritual that running slowly to the home of our body, and the home of our heart.
The French window is the Dawn of this space. Shinning lights are shown even from the hallway. The sunshine, the rain, the waving branches are visible from the big bright window, which prolongs the space to Shen Ming hall, increased the feeling of layering of the space. We could imagine in one afternoon, the owner is holding a cup of coffee standing in front of the window, his/ her mind is flying from one space to the other, at that moment, he/she doesn’t need to be someone at work, he/she is his/her own simple and peaceful heart.
The corridor of the living room is the highlight, which applies moving line and function’s layout.
The one side of the axis is gorgeous and natural stone, whereas the other side is quiet and gentle wood. The construction of the two provides the space two different languages. The clever use of grey mirror ceiling, redefined the relationship between the dinning table and the space. The designer is inspired by the connection between the sky and the sea. There is no need of any stiff interval in-between, as the application of different materials softly draws the ‘borders’ out.
The texture of the original material, together with the delicate edge, the elegance and gentleness of the titanium-plated metal are parts of Chang Liang. The mirror ceiling, distinguishes warm and cold color naturally, expanded the visibility of the space.
The narration of the space structure, presents tones with variant rhymes, whereas show the coherent theme of the space. The small hallway, the fine-designed cloakroom and bedroom, direct to the elegant and spacious bedroom. The basic color of the double second-bedrooms is cool soft azure, one shows the European fine style, and the other is simple and modern. Two rooms of same structure, but with different tastes. The delicate design makes the owner returns home with peace and ease.
The design of the house is invisible. In the house owner’s daily life, he/she might not able to find out details of the interior design. However, the owner is in the house and interacts with it everyday. He/she is able to fell the smell and breath of the space, and is able to exchange his/her tiredness and joyfulness in the house, and also to recharge. The owner will embrace the hope, blessing of every morning’s sunrise; the house helps him/her to create his/her life optimistically.
The house is made of the bricks of blessing and expectation. It is painted with the warmest color, and all expectations one might have about a house, has been filled in. The relaxing breath lights everyone’s heart up.
This is the expression and blessing of design and construction of this house. This is why it is called Chang Liang.
