Inspired by the client's love for logs and traditional crafts, the design team makes the material itself and the client's wood art collection the essential element of the design, which perfectly integrated into the living space. The most significant feature of the project is to make the most use of the logs purchased by the client, with the diameter of 1.2 meters and the length of 3.6 meters. It is displayed in every corner and coexists with client’s retirement in the future. In order to strengthen the natural texture of logs, the design takes the principle of low limit and black, white and grey colors as the basis, supplemented by iron elements, glass and other materials to dissolve the solid wood thickness but also create a cozy natural home. The team makes the effort to simplify the design elements and arrange the public space in an open way to display a bright and clean lifestyle. The innermost room is transformed into a tatami room, no only bringing more brightness to the hall, which originally lacked of natural light, but also creating a place for clients and grandchildren to enjoy. Beside, the project is in response to be a home for the life of retirement; every area and hall is expanded to create a barrier free environment. The spatial aesthetics of the space is presented by the combination of a variety of different materials to maximize the beauty of the logs. Considering the personality of the client and the texture of the logs, the design team delves to the collocation between materials and the presentation of the color, carrying out a peaceful and stable texture with the visual balance. Whether it's the grille screen at the entry area, TV wall, sofa back wall, halls or furniture such as the dining table and display cabinet, each design highlights the client's preference for specific elements through overlapping the composite materials, building a spatial level of variability.
