The perfect condensation.
Flowing between meaning and formation of space to integrate into an organic sphere.Through refining and settling, the elegance of Shibui is recreated.Details formed the space make it a place far from the madding crowd.After a razzle-dazzling day, you can slow yourself down and breathe the pureness of life in this space.
The calming space. There are muddling doe between the definite black and white as the color naturally formed with time. The soft and cozy space was carefully cut in vertical and horizontal way to demonstrate its grace as the delicate outcomes of the interaction between restrict and un-restrict. JSC Studio focuses on the Japanese anesthetics and organic modernism. It’s the sense of spatial development created by JSC Studio with multiple reflections.
The curve expresses different gestures: the wing-shaped and inward spiraling stairs connect two floors are the perfect twist and the up-lift cover for the space. Such an expression of fashion invites residents to enjoy the neat but elegant design while immerse in the poetic atmosphere. In addition, the gaps and cuts create the pauses between the flow which also provide openness of the space.
In addition to the organic curves, JSC studio also used the geometric aesthetics on the building volume. Stone masonry provides both vertical and horizontal lines and creates the contrast visually. The black and white stair rails bring out the feeling of notes on the music sheet. The gaps between metal pole and cement structure is carefully arranged for blank-leaving. The use of glass material contrasts with cement structure to create the layers of beauty.
The use of raw materials such as stone, wood, and special coating creates the symbiotic interactions between man and the nature hence internalized the living comforts from the material world to inner spirits. Furthermore, the black and white layers built up with different materials generated the introverted elegance of “shibui.” The focus on details such as marble on the stairs, the ratio of the slop around the corner, the glass covered by woods on the TV wall, the fireplace-liked design, the modern techniques to create void in the room, and black and white, wood and metal combined bedroom door design help create the lasting classics.
Both floors are equipped with bedroom while downstairs are programmed as the public space with full functioned living and dining areas. The curves again used as the guides for each area. Upstairs are the private living space for the resident family. A family room locates at the top of the stairs. Home office and master bedroom are connected. Residents can have a rest and head for the office to read or write. It’s a shell-liked space where you can both find the inner peace and improve yourself.
