Another facelift from original house that already exist.
We were challenged about how to introduce a somewhat new design and mood from the original that already exist, while also preserving the original structure.
Through disscussion, we create an “infill” design than can “slide-into” the original concrete frame. We adjust this “infill structure and form” as a balcony in the center of existing structure, and fill the rest with lower design tone to emphasize the infill structure
This residential project brings us closer to our feminim side. We tried to deliver a eclectic mix between architecture geometric play with interior mood, to achieve bold expression, but still have details touch in every corner of the house.
We set sunken living room in the heart of the house, surround it with octagonal shapes, and push it all the way to exterior boundary, to create variety of interior space form.
A renovation project somehow always challenging. It’s about how we deliver our best idea and solution with major boundaries that exist within the existing house.
In the design process, we stroke a bold geometric form in facade, to express the owner spirit & characteristic. The facelift process comes from delicated and tidy up job examining & evolving existing structure itu the one that we needed.
A House is always personal. Every space crafted in special way for fullfilling needs and functions. This house wants to stiching dreams from a multigeneration family.
This house threading different needs in each floor, while we have limited site size to perform. So, we explore another way to make space feel “bigger”. We infused dining room in layour as “space” (not form), with no actual wall boundary… and stretched it all the way to ceiling and backyard void. It creates illusion of spaces, trancends from one space to another space.
Is it always have to be at the back of the house ? …. why ?
In this project, we tried to bring our garden closer to us. By putting them at the side yard of the house. In that case, every building’s wall will receive equal amount of natural light, a nice air flow at every interior space in the house.
By having side garden, we also received natural daylight, that blends into our interior. Light that comes in, creates interior poetry… it creates shadow strikes as passing by, moving as the sun goes. Creating sense of time for the dweller inside.
