The inspiration for 'Poetic and Artistic' came from the desire to create a home that caters to the needs of a three-generation family. The design divides public and private areas vertically, ensuring privacy while maintaining spatial independence. The first two floors serve as public spaces, while the upper floors house bedrooms, a study, and exercise spaces.
What sets this design apart is its unique entrance. On entering, one is greeted by a reception tea room that draws heavily from Chinese classical poetry and painting. The space features natural patterns, rock veneer walls, wooden shutters, and a stone island-connected wooden long table. This artistic blend of elements creates a serene and welcoming atmosphere.
The design realization technology employed by Hong is equally impressive. The second floor, a public space for the entire family, features floor-to-ceiling windows that allow sunlight to flood the area. The low patio wall inside the restaurant is decorated with grids, and tea mirrors are installed on both sides to visually widen the space.
Despite the challenges posed by the existing pipeline configuration and the narrow width of the house, Hong managed to overcome them to achieve the best spatial effect. The lighting surface of the first and second floors was adjusted from the narrow side to the broad side, enhancing indoor lighting and the sense of space.
The 'Poetic and Artistic' design is a testament to Hong's commitment to pushing the boundaries of residential design. It's not just a house; it's a work of art that serves as a home. This design is a reminder that with creativity and innovation, even the most challenging spaces can be transformed into something extraordinary.
As the Silver A' Design Award winner, 'Poetic and Artistic' is a shining example of remarkable design expertise and innovation. It's a design that evokes positive feelings, amazement, and wonder, and it's a design that's set to inspire many more in the future.
