Nature is the ultimate home of mankind.
The project is located in a resort in Zhuo zhou, Hebei Province. The park has an independent golf course with good landscape. The owner is a free artist. The house is mainly used for summer vacation and artistic creation. As the second choice for enjoying retirement life, it is expected to be more free and relaxed.
Breaking the convention, looking for inspiration in nature, pro-primitive designers present the feeling of caves in modern houses, building an imaginative, special house, a simple, primitive but futurized quiet space and spiritual shelter.
As early as in ancient times, our ancestors learned to live beside to the cave. Zhou Yi writes : In ancient times, people lived in cave in the wild.Saints build houses, later changed the living environment, people are living house to dodge rain . In the movie The Croods , the opening description is as follows: The sun rises and brings a new day. Our family spends most of their time in the caves. Day after day, this is our home. The cave was one of the first buildings of mankind. It was able to withstand external aggression, shelter from the wind and rain, get warmth and protect from the heat and summer.
The designer did interesting practice in this project, broke the square box shape of the original building, used irregular three-dimensional curved wall top structure, through many field tests, manually woven with steel bars and iron mesh formwork stereotyped, and made of concrete spray, air conditioning, fresh air and other equipment pipelines are hidden in the arc top surface, all the other corners are manually polished into round corners, the wall surface deliberately retains manual scratches. So that irregular texture can be perceived, many indoor cabinets are abnormal, manually built by workers hidden inside the wall, so that the integrity of the space and a stronger sense of encapsulation, a large number of curved surface modeling will be the top of the wall boundary blur, ubiquitous arc details, create an integrated natural cave atmosphere, curved structure and light together to create a lot of soft emotions.
Into the dark hall, the hall space in the distance suddenly bright, the whole space filled with peaceful light.
A white spiral staircase occupies the core of the central hall, which is like an impressive sculpture, completely breaking the square pattern.
Simple interior space with minimal furniture.
The spiral staircase is powerful and mellow, it not only connects up and down, but also increasing the lighting for the middle hall. The shoe cabinet and stool in the left hall are directly built by the wall, which is integrated with the space.
The sofa area of living room , irregular curved roof connected into a whole, pebble style coffee table and space keep the integrated.
Love is to have many meals together. The counter top of the kitchen cabinet is close to 10 meters. During the holiday, you can invite friends to cook together and have a good time.
The dining room is connected to the view of the yard, and you can see the river in front of the door.
The pure white stairs like Nautilus are the important hub of the whole space.
The glass barrier has blurred the boundary, increases the permeability, and also adds light to the middle of the hall. The position of the right original stair is changed to a hydraulic elevator, and is well prepared for later retirement, and the elevator door is also made into a transparent material for safety reasons.
The light of the corridor, the roof wall is made of three-dimensional curved surface.
The bedroom is free and unrestricted like a cave, and the multi curved surface forms a good sense of wrapping. The floor material is old wood floor.
The three arch on the right wall makes the space disorderly with order, and the embedded wardrobe directly replaces the cabinet door with cloth curtain
The most interesting space is the bathroom on the second floor. Many irregular walls are deliberately designed, just like bathing in a cave.
Water drop shaped customized table top, the ground material is blue resin paint, in which there is a feeling of being in the sea.
The structure on the top of the toilet, the high window on the right side brings light to the storage room of the attic.
The corner also designed a drinking tank to facilitate the use of the second floor. The wall can see irregular manual texture, affinity arises.
The guest room is on the north side, which is still made of three-dimensional curved surface.
One corner of guest room, polygonal white bed.
The space on the west side is a studio and atelier, with plenty of sunshine. The left side is a roof platform, with a very wide view. The park has a panoramic view of the beautiful scenery.
The attic is added at the top of the studio. Due to the height of the floor, the space has a flat roof.
The wall is the owner’s work of art. It’s made of ordinary military flags. It’s very interesting.
At the beginning of the evening, another soft atmosphere is displayed in the room, especially tranquil.
Leading to the attic is an invisible electric wooden ladder, which can be collected at ordinary times to save space.
Full view of spiral staircase.
The attic retains the original polygons, painted white as a whole, windows lead to the bathroom, and indirect lighting can be achieved during the day.
During the holiday, invite friends to get together, read and draw in the yard or on the terrace. The beautiful scenery inside and outside will be corresponding. You can feel the passing of time and the original appearance of life.
People are bound by the steel and cement of the city, tired in body and mind, hoping to flee from the city, looking for the xanadu in the heart is our ideal, but the rural life is not only the expression of the countryside, we should not only connect the secular, but also improve it to the spiritual level, and finally lead to the Utopia in our hearts.
A good building is not just a living machine. A good space must be spiritual to move people.
