Yang Chen, Zhongliang Xiang
During the conversation, the owner talked about medieval buildings in Europe, some buildings in Shanghai, the charm of Chinese classics, the "wabi-sabi" in oriental aesthetics, also talked about the sense of stability when the twilight comes. Overall, it is a very abstract feeling. The beauty that affects him mentioned by the owner has traces of time flowing. These buildings that use themselves as carriers to record time are precisely visible time.
We used art paint which mottled, the worn traces just right illustrate the staleness of time acting on objects. In the furnishings, a lot of vintage furniture is also used.
The owner is a young and promising Confucian businessman, mainly doing import and export trade. Also studied abroad.
When this house was purchased, high hopes were placed on the life experience in it. In addition to the usual life of the family, the owner also hopes to be able to meet guests at home frequently in the future.
We built a study behind the dining room from witch we can see the whole column in front, the column supports a high ceiling space. This space is nonexistent before we knocking down the wall.
