Project Description

Minimalist House of Kung Fu and Zen
Adhering to the concept of "simple and atmospheric house", weeding out excess stuff, designer Mo Shen hopes to give the space more spiritual connotation. Combined the hobbies with occupation characteristics of the master, a forest in an urban area is created with the elements of nature, Zen and Chinese Kung Fu, so that people can breathe and meditate quietly as if they are in nature.
The colors of black, white and grey extracted from Chinese kung fu elements are a blend of oriental aesthetics and Zen thoughts, emitting a style of serenity and elegance. As a flowing scroll scroll, every corner of the space can produce a variety of poetry between the light and shadow fluxion.
The living space is divided into three rooms and an assistant room, among which, the master bedroom is rezoned with a cloakroom and spa space.
Without too much adornment, beyond meeting the basic needs of life, the designer hopes that the host can also interact with the space, changing the artwork and furniture as wishes, to make a difference every moment.
