The helical staircase is not just a functional element in the design of the house but also a sculptural feature which increases its visual appeal and overall elegance while remaining space-efficient. Its main role is that of offering access to the two mezzanine platforms. There’s one at either end of the structure and each has its own function. One of the platforms serves as the main sleeping area while the other is a workspace.
The master suite is a blissful retreat that also has an open floor plan. The pitch ceilings add airiness and lightness to the already spacious bedroom and the unique open walk-in closet adds visual interest. The reclaimed wood cladding the walls of the closet are an artistic element that also adds depth and texture to the space. The bathroom, located beyond the closet, is highlighted by a translucent window, which allows the ground-level space to have plenty of light without worrying about others being able to see into the room.
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.
Beyond the pool area, the house makes the most of its surroundings by using native plant materials that not only fit with the landscape, but are also very low maintenance. This is particularly good for dry summers when native plantings are sturdier. The concrete construction uses a large amount of glass to capitalize on the views and bring plenty of light into the interior of the home.
