Having lived in this residence for 20 years, the design strived to solve the storage issue for housing many collected paintings by exploring new display solution with the design concept of “Stacking”, which was to regard ceiling, beam, cabinet, wall, flooring and even paintings as single volume objects that collided, stacked and extended both vertically and horizontally in articulation and definition of material continuity and functionality of different domains, as well as intensifying visual depth and the flow of the circulation. Given the natural view of the site, the overall color-scheme was of black, white, grey and earth tone, complemented with genuine materials and ample natural light in sculpting tranquil scenery. A defining stroke of creativity was to house and display the client’s paintings. The 12 concrete-finished sliding panels divided into 7 layers from front to back were hung with the client’s collection of paintings, along with timber grilled screen to create the interplay between the paintings, light and shadow. With every movable panels layered against one another, it opens up a more flexible and refreshing angle of creative appreciation, and naturally, more sense of fun in everyday living for the client. Moreover, through the overlapping, collisions of colors, materials and paintings, the designed space was given an interwoven visual layering, while the overall spatial visuals formed around the concept of “Stacking”, perfectly conveying everything treasured by the clients, in creating space and visual experiences that are unique to them only.
