In this exercise of imagination, the house of the future is a space which the occupants use both as a home and as a workspace. The design is focused on accessibility and convenience and in order to offer all that a flexible layout was conceived. The general approach aimed at exposing the beauty of traditional Chinese architecture by preserving the main frame of the house and infusing it with modern and smart features.
There are numerous examples of successful meshing of these two, seemingly opposing, styles together into one cohesive design. Look to the image below— it’s a exemplary illustration of a modern and traditional union. The mixture of cedar shingles with modern structural elements creates a very unique and appealing home.
The house is open to the surroundings at either end. It has fully glazed facades which let in lots of natural light and expose the internal spaces to the views which, by the way, are pretty amazing. We’re particularly intrigued by the way these spaces are organized. As we already mentioned, they’re all clustered around a central space which has a double-height ceiling. A spiral staircase and a ceiling-mounted fireplace emphasize the height of the space and serve as focal points.
The fundamentals of modern architecture are clean and simple. Its ever-present philosophy abides to the ideal that form follows function. Therefore, modern architects express themselves through simplicity, clear views of structural elements and by eschewing unnecessary design details.
