Z-house: a little attitude about life

Fusion Design as Interior Architects

Culture is derived from nature. From the theories of rare and exotic animals in the Classic of Mountains and Rivers, to the “Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism”, which was once a cultural orthodoxy, to the poetry of the Tang and Song dynasties, the connotation of Chinese culture is almost all related to nature.

Fusion Design felt the traditional heritage inherited from Chinese culture, and created a free space for Z in Shenzhen with a tropical monsoon climate. In the busy city, focusing on enjoying one's own life is Z's attitude to life and a kind of wisdom about life.

SPACE-Harmonious

“Ordinary hermits live in the mountains and forests, but real hermits live in the noisy city. “ People who enjoy themselves in life often do not deliberately choose where they live. In the mountains, there is a quiet and peaceful environment. In the city, there is a lively happiness. So in the space design, we integrate these two levels. Through a change of dimension and perception, a kind of wisdom of life is displayed.

The bar, which is directly connected from the entrance, reflects the freedom of a secular life. The bar extends forward, which can be used to prepare dishes for dinner, to enjoy food and tea with friends, and to practice calligraphy. The breath of ordinary life floats in this area.

In a quiet space, the kitchen is the first place to come alive. It was hidden behind the long table and looked out from the glass sliding door. Spiritual sublimation always has to satisfy appetite as the bottom line. A person's love for life can be seen from the layout of the kitchen.

Opposite the kitchen and long table are mirrored cabinets. On the basis of satisfying the basic functions of daily storage, the entire space has been expanded horizontally in terms of vision. In and out, look at yourself in the mirror, organize your clothes, and adjust your state. The function of the utensils lies in this.

Continue to move inward, and the moving line is divided here. With the gentle arc of the ceiling, the whole space is raised upwards. It ensures the movement of fresh wind power, and it seems to add a little life to the space. The light that floats in from the floor-to-ceiling windows always attracts people’s attention. The orderly wooden floors fix the space, and the thick cotton and linen carpets bring some literati elegance. Together with the plants on the table and the balcony, they enclose a whole serene living room space.

The space is dominated by cement white, and the cream white of sofa and table lamp reflects an interesting color hierarchy dimension. The unique coating of micro-cement makes the light ripple slightly on the ceiling. Like a metaphor, a rhetoric, a line of poetry written on the surface of the water. White is the most low-key background color, it can blend with any color, but can maintain its own low-key and independent presence. It won't necessarily be the focus, but it can't be ignored. Silent, but has a quiet power.

The rug is the picture scroll, and nature is the best painter. It dipped ink from the long river of history and sprinkled the years on it. The breeze is blowing, the light and shadow are whirling, and people also gain insight.

A comfortable space, always with some unity. Walking along the other side of the moving line, you will come to the most important living space in the home. The space is square and open, fully considering the comfort and stretch of the human body. The large bed placed in the center provides the human body with a soft touch and sleep guarantee.

The natural light entering the window produces a gentle diffuse reflection on the woven wardrobe, and the increasing effect from dark to bright makes the space a simple flavor. Take a book and keep it company with the round table and sofa. The diversification of space increases the possibility of interaction between people and space and nature.

The entrance to the cloakroom hidden at the corner is a blank space, which is a display of the "live" artistic conception of Chinese gardens. The ancient art is used today, and it is perfectly displayed here.

LIFE-Zen

 

The road of life is long, some people hesitate in place, and some people go all out. And Z is more like a rambler on the road of life, with the peace of "not seeking", with a firm heart and a leisurely stroll. In ancient times, Jiang Taigong was fishing by the riverside, waiting for a willing fish to be hooked. And every object in the home comes from the encounter between Z and Fusion Design together in "waiting".

Art is not a skill, it is the conveyance of the feelings experienced by the artist. --Leo Tolstoy

 

The existence of art often lies not in understanding, but in feeling, which is a kind of experience that can only be comprehended. The selection of artworks is a long process. Because of the behavior that has been maintained, there is now a space for integration.

The artworks of each era have different stories. Looking up close, you can observe a kind of gleam about the precipitation of time. Different artworks in the same space will have new space-time attributes because of their special story background.

Caption

It can be said that the taste of the residents determines the artistic attributes of the space. However, the influence of artworks further sublimates the charm of the residents themselves.
