Spatial purity was created by blending concrete, titanium-coated stainless steel plate, and warm timbers. The living room back-wall used reinforcing steel and steel-brushed oak to mold. The curved rusted metal corridor extended to the end of the master bedroom. The main beam atop the entrance was softened and the illusion of extended space was created by the timber ceilings. As the interior articulates a stroke of warm energy emanating from the original purity and transparency, every material plays an intricate part in the harmonious symphony of such spatiality, as the natural yet humble ambiance flooding the interior. Light and shadow, not merely manifests the material surfaces, represents the most genuine layer of the space. Having cleverly fusing the resident-unique living rhythm and natural environment into the design, the sunlight, clouds, rain water and greenery outside the window naturally become the key design elements, while these natural elements are articulated in their most genuine and original form. The design team conceives the minimalist comfort for this space with the sense of serenity out of a carefully articulated materiality, while allowing it to naturally flow among a calm dialogue between the self and the space. In such spatiality, the robust finished concrete adds the time factor into the overall spatial narrative. In the bedrooms, the design team strives to create a tranquil ambiance, much like rusted steel plates, transiting between the changing light and shadow of the interior. In the making of such experiences, it becomes a bold journey of forward-facing search of the precious light in life.
