The overall design is defined by strong and obvious curves, featuring a V-shaped floor plan that frames a courtyard with its wings. The interior spaces seamlessly flow together, featuring curved walls, dividers and even gently arched ceilings. There’s nothing standard about this house yet you wouldn’t really be able to tell that by looking at it from the street, mainly because it’s difficult to even spot it from there.
The view from the house is of the pool area, and from this window, it is of the concrete and wood structure that provides privacy. The lounging area is completely shielded from the landscape, offering the utmost in privacy to this end of the pool.
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.
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.
