Rising Sun Design

Project Description

The residence uses a low color palette and unconstrained natural texture to create a sense of tranquility and belonging, leaving behind the hustle and bustle of the neon city life. The outdoor greenery is extended into the room through the open layout. Through the foyer partition that can keep things hidden behind, the clear light falls onto the grayish blue shoe cabinet and the ink flooring, creating silent but chronological trajectories that gradually create peace in mind.
A special inky gray paint is swayed on the main TV wall so that the warmth is infused by the handcrafted and unique trowel-painting process. The lower charcoal gray TV cabinet with curved edges can soften the rigidity of the volume and echo the curved shape canopy. On the wall behind the sofa, its silver gray texture is like white snowflakes flying in winter. The airy and clear texture balances the heaviness of the main wall. The dining space is wrapped in deep saturated blue and gray stone pattern. After integrating the functions, it extends outward into a kitchen island with bar. The connection of volumes not only turns disadvantages in layout into advantages but also improve flexibility of use.
