Project Innovation/Need

The design took into account of user-friendly experience and adapted to the “growing” spatial pattern of contemporary residence. Taking exquisite, elegant aesthetics as the design concept, lifestyle with oriental charm as the core of experience, the design converted the oriental philosophy of following the law of nature and combining strength and softness in harmony into quality and details of this residence. Expansive spatial scale, luxury scenes, interactive experiences, well-designed storage system and distinct forms create an ideal, higher-level living environment for the occupants.

Design Challenge

Firstly, one of the design challenges was to adapt to “growing” spatial pattern of contemporary residences, and to create user-friendly experiences. Secondly, the design needed to take exquisite, elegant aesthetics as the design concept, lifestyle with Oriental charm as the core of experience, and integrated Oriental philosophy that advocates following the law of nature and combining strength and softness into details. Thirdly, it was a challenge to create a living space with distinct forms, and strike the balance between aesthetics and functionality from multiple angles, so as to provide an ideal, higher-level living environment.
The project adopts modern, elegant and luxurious design languages. With elaborate arrangements of details and creation of overall atmosphere, elegant luxury are blended in the space, which not only gives occupants an enjoyable, unique visual experience, but also meets their emotional and rational needs for living environment. Through simple design techniques, the space reveals a fashionable metropolitan atmosphere. Contemporary design languages are adopted to express traditions. Clean lines, simple finishes, natural material textures, modern and stylish metal materials, and local cultural elements are blended together, which highlight the connection among the space, local context, culture and history. To create an ideal, elegant and luxury living space, the project takes comfort, practicality and user-friendly details into account, so as to help adjust dwellers’ mood and strike the balance between functionality and aesthetics.


Through adopting simplistic design approach and concept of urban naturalism, the spatial properties of this large single-floor residence with lake view are optimized. Taking into account of functions and circulation, the design maximizes the landscape advantage with large French windows, incorporates natural light as the core of the space, and minimizes energy consumption of artificial lighting. The combination of open spatial blocks and durable materials enhances the quality of living while ensuring sustainability. The elements in the space, such as light and shadow, air flow, temperature and vision, are integrated into a harmonious microclimate through the design strategy.
