Inspired by the feature of ancient Chinese architecture, which has an exceptional emphasis of building arts and aesthetic implications, this project is presented in an artistic way that combines both traditional Chinese and contemporary cultures seamlessly by presenting their common features, including textures, layouts and aesthetic standards.
The blend of wooden and marble textures that is often used in both Chinese and modern style creates an elegant interior and keeps a consistent style in the whole building. Black, grey and white colours are mainly used with clean-lined designs to add a modern feeling as well as make the interiors look more formal. The elegance is presented in a calm and peaceful way, and not giving people a feeling of “showing off”. This feeling complies the unique pursuit of “ambience” in Chinese aesthetic concepts.
The whole building is divided by 3 storages and a basement. As the storage level gets higher, the design style turns gradually from traditional to modern. That means the storage on the first floor is the most traditional, so it is designed to be the living room and dining room to highlight the importance of “reuniting” and “gathering” in Chinese cultures. The ceilings and walls are inspired by the features of “Liang” and “Pillar” in ancient Chinese architectures. The checkered pattern on the ceilings symbolizes “Liang” and the round thick pillars next to the walls symbolizes Chinese “Pillar”. Furniture is placed neatly and give a balanced visual, that is also a feature Chinese put emphasis on. For the second and third floor, they are bedrooms with a contemporary style that is added with curved-line designs to create a modern atmosphere. Marble walls that give a traditional feeling are used on the second floor to highlight the fusion of Chinese and modern style. The third floor is the least traditional and the most modern, as it is decorated with couples of wooden textures to replace the marble textures in the second floor. This texture creates a comfortable feeling to match the emphasis of “lifestyles” of today’s interior design. The basement is completely different form the upstairs. Its elegance and luxurious feeling with a huge collection of delicate wine offer excellent secret place for people to enjoy their relaxing moments.
