Project Description

Wishing to make daily lives closer to the natural environment, the couple has always been going in and out up in the mountains. That makes choosing Bitan’s scenery as a part of their daily lives a further step to appreciate and cherish each day of life at home more. Different from the usual and ordinary arrangement in the city residence, the design blurs out the division between spaces, introducing mountain scenery indoors and making it a part of the interior decoration. An open and spacious place with natural light shining through every corner is formed. Letting lives, light and shadow intertwine, becoming the best decoration indoors.

Fluidity of elegant lines with tidiness and brightness are the features of the whole space. With big windows opening up on the side, it introduces natural lighting and the landscape. The clean, fresh and bright quality of the study room decorated with the indoor plantation, perfectly echoes with the scenery outside the frame, the window. The study area therefore becomes a transition and connection between the indoor and the outdoor. A place that gets closer to the ever-changing details of the environment, of each season.
