Situated at the southern foot of Wuyun Mountain by the Qiantang River, there is a unpretentious and unique residential projec. With such green trees to hide, it seems as if to escape from the metropolitan and live in nature.The architectural plan was designed by David Chipperfield-the British Pritzker Prize winner. It features a quiet valley and surrounding forest, and arranges 12 houses in the forest in the form of chess. This residence hidden in the woods gives people an original non-experienced residential experience. Based on the principle of retreating to the nature and restoring the essence of life, Designer has completed the internal space design of its residences by turning complexity to simplicity. This is the exploration of living space and consideration of slowing down the pace of life. Facing the current commercial society, we have too much passivity. We are stylized, consumed, and guided for some reason. We all seem to be looking for something, but back In the past, many may not be our true intentions. We hope to create a habitat where we can relax and rethink freely, and leave a perceptual experience and memory for all people in this environment. Here, life appears to be pure and simple, getting rid of all impetuous hustle and bustle, and being quiet in nature. QUANHONG ARCHITECT & ASSOCIATES advocates the design concept of no exaggerating decoration in living space, highlighting on space, and restoring the essence of life. Designer has conducted a line-guided processing design for the lighting in the space, emphasizing the levels of spatial light and shadow combined with the nature, and a sense of extension of the space brought by the top lighting line. In the meanwhile, its delicate light distribution, using dots, lines and surfaces as the space to create the differences of the light effect, creating a sense of spatial hierarchy and meeting the daily needs of life.
