As an external carrier, space should form a complementary relationship with people. Living space should bring people a sense of closeness, comfort, convenience and beauty. It can maximize our functional and spiritual needs. We hope that when we wake up every morning, some stories can happen in this spatial carrier：sunshine, breeze and people. But in real life, many spaces refuse to communicate. Although the decoration is beautiful, we always want to escape.
Located in Chongqing, this case is a large flat storey residence with four bedrooms, two halls and two bathrooms.The overall spatial pattern is relatively rigid, blocking a certain line of sight and daylighting. Moreover, the area of the separate room is small, the supporting facilities of the room are insufficient, and the characteristics of functional zoning are not obvious. The design scheme starts from the needs of the owner and meets the decoration needs of the two bedrooms. The spatial layout is “deep and shallow in color, dynamic and static in zone”; In terms of decoration, there are not much complicated collocation. Morandi color system and wood color system are mostly used in color, which is intended to create a simple, exquisite and comfortable living space, some small areas of bright colors are dotted to make the space rich in layers and the situation changeable; Lighting treatment is divided into relaxation, leisure and entertainment, full lighting and other modes.
The scheme is reorganized in terms of spatial function layout, aiming to create an open and flowing spatial feeling, increase the functional penetration and situational interaction between spaces, and make it more in line with the changeable life scene needs of young residents nowadays. The design focuses on the composition relationship of lines and surfaces, adopting color block interleaving and continuous gradient to make necessary decoration. The use of rotating glass screens and other decorative components to further present the art and fashion of space.
The open living room and the paved log colored wood floor make the overall atmosphere comfortable and warm. The light gray sofa and the small black round table are simple and elegant. The chandelier next to the TV also adds a lot of artistic sense to the living room.
Open the original kitchen wall, combined with the form of Western-style food island platform, expand the area of dining room, and improve the problems of blocked vision and dark light. With this area as the interaction core and a smaller Chinese kitchen as the supporting supplement, the operation of the whole kitchen space is easy, and the interaction of the spaces is cultivated. The restaurant continues the simple and spacious style of the living room, and the gun gray cabinet makes the whole kitchen subjective. The design of the bar is the finishing touch, which improves the problem that the wide space is too monotonous and makes life more emotional. Table legs and chair legs also reflect the ultimate simplicity and exquisite.
Adjusting the area proportion and shape of the master bedroom and cloakroom not only meets the storage needs of the secondary bedroom, but also improves the narrow shape of the master bedroom, reduces the aisle space of the original house type, and improves the utilization rate and value of the space. The background wall of the master bedroom is simple and generous, and the grille weakens the edge force of the space, making the whole room warm and soft.
Merge the area to the north of the living room, dismantle the indoor enclosure, and arrange the study function in combination with the generatrix rules, so as to achieve real north-south permeability, increase cross ventilation and improve daylighting. Using the characteristics that the rotating glass can be opened and closed, which not only meet the relative independence of the study, but also realize the interactive supplement with the living room. Instead of choosing a large-area and indomitable bookcase like the traditional layout, it chose a relatively low form to let the sun pour down through the shutters and broaden the field of vision. Reading a book and making a pot of tea in your spare time, you can’t help looking out of the window. Life is no better than this.
In the whole design, considering more contact with nature, the sliding window between the balcony and the living room can ensure the line of sight is transparent and the air is smooth. In consideration of energy conservation and environmental protection, using circulating water, kitchen waste treasure and other equipment to make full use of water resources to avoid waste. Environmental friendly building materials such as emulsion paint latex will also be selected to control and reduce the pollution of releases. When you get back to your place, peace of mind and body. Re-comb the spatial order and return to the original heart with the attitude of returning to nature.
