Step up and step into the cloud of maze: Tokyo Tree House Gallery, Tree-ness House

By
Anything created by human beings is already in the great book of nature. - Antoni Gaudí i Cornet's association with the word "natural" is the arc of high and low, or soft and organic lines; however, unlike most people The impression of "nature", the Japanese architect Akihisa Hirata cuts into a tree with angular lines and builds a "Tree-ness House" in Tokyo. Hirata Hiroshi, who has worked in the famous Japanese architect Ito Kazuo for eight years, loves the intricate tree structure, counts the roots, stems, branches, flowers of trees, and the lichens, insects, and birds that are attached to the trees. ,animal. The love of the tree, the nuances of the life fascinated by it, Hiroshi Hirata through the Tree-ness House. The basic body of the building is a square, and then divided into three elements: box, wrinkles and tree planting. Look at the details of the building, such as cutting the edge of the box, folding it outward along the edge of the tangent, letting the body resemble a flower that blooms in one side, and put the plant in the block space created by the chamfer, one by one. It is simple to complete. The Tree-ness House is an urban tree house consisting of several measuring units. It is filled with green plants and mosaics to fill the space between the white bodies. The branches are intertwined and contain many lush vitality. Create a unique sense of space in the interior. The exterior of the building, built with concrete, with white steps and window sills, has become a business-like landscape in the greenery. If the growth of the same tree takes many years, Tree-ness House also takes years to complete. The owner of the three art galleries wants to create a white showroom that is different from the general gallery. After years of discussion and planning, Hirata has designed the urban tree house with the intricate pattern. The first floor is an art gallery. The seven floors above are planned for use in the home space. Like a big tree in the city, the Tree-ness House simulates the stretched foliage with a misplaced volume, using the white space to accommodate the life in it. In this detail-filled building, whether it is a plant that hangs from the window or a person who lives in it, it entrusts the daily living to the gap of stone gray; when breathing and breathing, life is accompanied by the image of organic and life.

Returning to the original home with the old house: Beijing Country House Studio Cottage

By
All images courtesy of Christian Taeubert & Sun Min. Beijing, many years ago, was once a building experimental field where global architects rushed to the ground; in the fantasy of the country where the building regulations were mature, Beijing seemed to be satisfied. After more than a decade of madness construction, the concept of "returning to the truth" has gradually taken root in people's minds - making people feel full is no longer a huge and magnificent extravagance, but a simple life essence. In order to provide a foothold for these pure souls, one of CLOU Architects, Christian Taeubert, and his wife, Sammy, spent six years building a cottage in the Beijing countryside, Studio Cottage. Photography/Christian Taeubert. Reading the city from the background of the building, China's rural areas are facing a large population migration problem, which leads to the rural population structure unable to give the village proper future development, and the uninhabited old houses in these towns Gradually, it gradually became a blank on the map. Like most villages in China, Bohai Town, which is less than two hours' drive from Beijing, is also facing the dilemma of massive population migration. The two Christians observed this phenomenon, so they rented a seven-year old house with a ten-year lease. Starting from it, they gradually extended the blueprint for revitalizing the local community and ushered in a life close to the soil. Although the rental period is only 10 years and 20 years respectively, the husband and wife still spend a lot of time to renovate the old house with local building materials; while on the other hand, it is called “Studio Cottage” on the other side, standing in the countryside and becoming A faraway from the dusty dreamland.

As the restoration work progressed, the cultural story hidden in the building was re-read. At the same time, adding elements of the new era, the old history is reborn in the new transformation, and the story can be extended to the next generation. Studio Cottage retains old-style wooden windows and adds a new window to the window, while retaining the original mottled walls and log truss ceilings. It also accidentally embossed the interior with a transparent floor warming. Photography/ Boris Shiu. Photography/ Boris Shiu. Photography/ Boris Shiu....

A space kaleidoscope that illuminates the warmth: a Spanish apartment like the Palace of the Palace Parlament 19

By

Being in a cosmopolitan city with limited living space, we are always working hard for more comfortable living conditions. The heart that is tired because of daily anxiety is especially eager to live in an ideal home - one can face the natural scenery, and at the same time Privacy space. However, we never thought about it. In fact, we only need a simple and ingenious design to simultaneously consider the aesthetics and function to meet the diverse needs of people. This apartment in Sant Antoni, Spain, Parlament 19, under the hands of the design team Miel Arquitectos, gives life to the original old and small apartment. Through simple techniques, the team separated two suites, a kitchen and a living room in an apartment of less than 20 pings, successfully cutting out a number of living rooms, but not visually narrow. This magical technique is the mirror. They put a mirror-shaped body in the center of the apartment as the center of the space. From the entrance, the mirror is like a doorman and leads the visitors. In a gradually enlarged space; slowly stepping in, the central mirror looks like a kaleidoscope of people's lives; it also extends the historical traces of the building, reflecting the natural scenery outside the window, providing multiple perspectives for people to view the space, and apartments. The scenery outside is quite interesting. Hidden behind the mirror is the kitchen space, and the white kitchen and ceiling make the space look like a small world outside the building. The design team opened a window connecting the kitchen and the dining room. The white walls and the interlaced yellow mosaic tiles softened the space boundaries outside the body, with sporadic gold strokes to embellish, handle, and switch. Forms appear, adding a warm and bright atmosphere to the space, which shows the fresh and warm life of the kitchen and dining space. Crossing the mirror to another space, the red brick ceiling reflects the atmosphere in the living room through the white wall. The selection of the floor echoes the warm texture of the ceiling, and the design team's extraordinary ingenuity . Following the arrangement of the red bricks, you will find the bedroom bathroom that is also hidden behind the mirror. In the same kitchen, the bathroom uses gradient mosaic tiles to create a distinctive color that is different from the mirror. It is worth mentioning that the bathroom entrance of the master bedroom chooses not to use the mirror instead of the ordinary wooden door. In the mirrored overall space, it creates an illusion like a wardrobe - only when the door is opened, can you find a hole in the sky. Parlament 19 is undoubtedly the experimental project of the design team for "reflective". The fallen mirror is the new highlight of the apartment, making the space more spacious with the visual experience of illusion; in addition, the lively mosaic tiles are more subtle. The balance mirror brings a cold scent. In the fantasy and childlike living space, I look up to see the scenery outside the mirror and discover the diversity of life. As if to be pre-announced, life is still depressed, we still have imagination to accompany - after a short break, life is still beautifully kicked off. All Images via Miel Arquitectos .

Let life carry out a photosynthesis: a glass house like an indoor courtyard, Country House

By

The enchanting climate of Southern Europe creates a diverse and rich natural landscape, with warm sun and lush vegetation that shapes the image of a holiday destination; the zaa (zanonarchitettiassociati) architectural firm in the northern part of the Italian city of Treviso designed this temperament . As the name suggests, the Country House, located on the outskirts of the city, is surrounded by nature, and the façade that climbs over the vines becomes part of the landscape, and the faint brick-red walls become the base of the green leaves. The zaa building business is an interior renovation of the old house and an additional outdoor building. The west and south sides of the old building are designed. The L-shaped additional building is designed as a one-story glass house; next to the old building The rusted iron window frame echoes the brick red wall, and the surrounding green landscape is projected onto the mirror-like reflective glass, allowing the glass house to be subtly blended into the landscape. Looking out from the inside is a whole view of the woods, giving the user the illusion of living in the woods; the brick floor that extends from the outdoors to the interior blurs the inner and outer boundaries and brings the outdoors into the interior – with a lush forest The landscape creates a courtyard-like atmosphere. The additional glass house serves as a dining room, living room and living room. There is no open space in the screen, responding to the open land outside; the antique furniture in the scattered space, the classic chair, simply defines the space. The design team retained the brick infrared wall of the old building to the interior space, the ceiling of the wood, the light red floor and the old building wall, naturally forming a space, successfully contrasting the green landscape outside. Into the red body, open the rust-iron treatment of the sliding door, see the stainless steel kitchen utensils stand out in the rough material, become the highlight in the kitchen. At the same time, the design team made arrangements for the interior of the old house. The indoor window frame, box lampshade, modeling beam and so on were changed to rust iron material, which echoed the design of the glass house. Unlike the brick red exterior wall, the interior wall surface was rough. A gray paint with a touch, while a dark wood floor warms the entire space. The addition of the glass house has increased the use of space for the old mansion and brought greenery into life. The sun is no longer blocked by the solid wall. It can be lightly placed on the tip of the owner. When you enjoy a meal or a cup of tea, you can share it with nature. Life is no longer uninteresting. Image Sources: zaa & archdaily.

By

"Home" travel is not an extension of the otaku, but a group of people who like to live in a home, prefer an old house, and like to be in a comfortable place in a comfortable place. With the development of the Internet and the prevalence of freedom in recent years, many travellers who do not like to be dominated have begun to look for their preferred way of travel. From Airbnb to Dearbnb in Taiwan, many homeless homeowners find opportunities to share their homes. At the same time, they are fascinated by the travellers who are obsessed with the old house and find a good choice to leave the city and "go to someone else's home for one night." Back to the hotel itself, most of the hotels or homestays are still targeting the "home"; through the design and decoration, the upgrade of the surrounding services, the travellers who are used to one-time consumption become loyal tenants.

Vacuum tube between the trees: sheltered from the forest, Paarman House

By

As a child, I always imagined that there is a small world where I can hide. It is only my own shelter. If space permits, it is better to invite friends to play together. And like a cat, some like to sneak into the dark observations close to the ground, such as under the table or at the foot of the bed; or jump to the top of the closet, at any height in the nest space, enjoy the inspections under the city; everyone expects The secret bases are different. They are also divided into concrete hollow pipes like caves, tents or cartoons that can be hidden in people. The most people are looking forward to it, just like the tree house in the air! Different from the common tree house, the Paarman House in the Constantia area of ​​South Cape is like a vacuum tube shining in the woods. It first gives people a visual surprise and attraction! After careful observation, you can see that Parrman House, designed by local construction team Malan Vorster, is not attached to the trunk, but has its own independent support structure. In order to respond to the slope topography of the base and the surrounding forest environment, the construction team designed four cylindrical towers suspended from the ground and suspended from the center column. The main ring structure and the support arm are all mine. The cut and folded steel sheet is formed and joined to the wooden floor with a hand-brass assembly as the primary support between the floor panels that extend out of each layer. The materials used, such as cedar wood, are not specifically surface-protected by the architects, and the intention is to make the whole building stain with the changing seasons over time, so that it is more natural and environmentally friendly. Melt into one. If you want to climb into a tree house like a space shuttle, you only need to find the hanging slope with steel plates and wood on the side of the building. It is the entrance to the room. The architects skillfully used the changes in the horizontal slabs of the four columnar spaces, and the open or closed settings of the vertical surface to create a more fluid and penetrating space for the interior. The main living room is located on the first floor of the building. The semi-circles are extended to resemble the terraces, patios, restaurants and the main staircase. The stairs to the second floor are the master bedroom. With bathroom space too. It can be found that the architect has hollowed out the outer building façade facing the main bed, so that the view is not blocked, and the scenery of the Constantia area, which is famous for its winemaking in the distant landscape, is included. A comfortable and modern tree house like Paarman House is a lot of people's heartfelt yearning; when the weather is good, you can dine on the outdoor terrace on the roof to overlook the ultramarine, or in the house, the red cypress leaves help to overlook the light and shadow of the morning faint Change, privacy, and enjoy the freedom of living on the treetops. It’s a great pleasure in life! Paarman House, designed by Malan Vorster, received the 2016 Steel Awards from SAISC for more information on Malan Vorster Facebook. All Image via Dezeen unless stated.

"Do not forget to invest in the original intention of design": One Work Design

By
The interior design, in addition to the beautiful space atmosphere picture and beauty, is actually a career of both rationality and sensibility. I believe that everyone has a lot of curiosity and embarrassment about the work and life of interior designers. "Where does design inspiration come from?", "How does a design company that runs a designer in a team work?" "How about the core and design techniques that are important when dealing with different spaces?" and so on. This time, by going into the studio of Taiwan's "One Work Design", I talked with three designers. Listen to them and talk about sharing everything from design to design. The design of the Yiyi design in Neihu is quite simple. Image Courtesy of One Work Design. The design of the work at Neihu is quite simple. Image Courtesy of One Work Design. The design of the work was created by three designers and friends, Wang Zhengxing (Xiaobai), Zhang Fengxiang (Axiang) and Yuan Yuyu (Xiaoyu). After years of industry nurturing, the three have accumulated rich experience and professionalism, and together with the vision and self-challenge in the design field, they built a young and professional team in 2014. After the establishment of the two-year expiration, Gongyi Design is not only a rising star in the industry, but also won many domestic and international awards under the hard work of three designers.

The word "Work" is just three strokes, echoing the three designers, referring to the quenching chain. The process of doing design has many struggles and hardships, but it is an inevitable process, and only by enjoying this process, can we develop a good design. "One" is not to forget the original intention; focus on one thing, and the three in the same direction. ——Working with one design, the original three people are each other’s middle school and university students, working in the same industry, and of course they will also look at the work sites of each other’s works, and then understand each other’s intentions and strengths; “Look at the construction site is The most direct, what you see is the process and details in the middle of the design. Through the different stages of non-final completion, you will know that you can't get together." Axiang explained. At that time, the three felt that the predecessors of the design companies in the market were relatively hard-working. They thought that the direction of the idea was quite the same after talking to each other. "If you can concentrate the power of the three people to decide things, there may be different. Maybe, the idea of ​​co-creating the studio was implemented. Photography/ Manchi. Photography/ Manchi....

Unfinished Completion: Ultra-simple hair salon that serves only one guest at a time, Osaka EQUIP

By

The equip hair salon, located in the quiet lane of Osaka City, has a clean and degraded space design and a service that only serves one customer, showing the owner's unique taste and vision. From the location of the Sides Core design office to the presentation of the overall space, the design team provided a lot of ideas and opinions, and they hope that this hair salon can present every aspect of the owner. Located in the lanes of the residential area, the low-key and simple appearance is not arrogant. Every visitor is welcome to visit; the indoor cement-gray floor and ceilings bring out the clean white walls on both sides, which are connected in series to form a "ㄇ" shape. The beams and columns naturally separate the functions from the space, and also create the depth of field of the facade, increasing the layering of the small space. The wooden window frame is like a transparent screen. The people walking are the scenery on the canvas. The form of the area separates the shampoo area and the hair-cutting area, and also adds a warm atmosphere to the white space. The wooden back wall on the side is contrasted with the window frame screen. The fine perforation on the back panel is matched with the adjustable hardware fittings. The style can be changed according to the habits or preferences of the owner. Inspired by the hair salon owner who loves to climb the mountain, he Say: "Everything in the mountains is unpredictable. You never know what will happen before you arrive. Every time is a new experience." And this main wall is constantly changing with the season, mood, and life. Make a change and show the living conditions of the owner of the starting gallery. The clean interior allows the furniture and accessories to stand in the space like a work of art. The bright yellow geometric lights embellish the space highlights, the white seats and the light wood waiting tables and chairs, adding different material touches to the white space tone. The circular mirror is like the same window. The difference is that the view is the corner of the corridor. It is a unique viewing angle under the curved cut.

Weaving the bold outline of the home: Lee & Tee House, Ho Chi Minh City

By

At first glance, like the lanes of Taiwan's lanes, a towering building with different lengths is closely linked together, sharing a wall with the neighbors to form a wall, so that the narrow houses can only be lit before and after. This is a residential area in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Under the current unfavorable conditions, the design team Block Architects has re-woven the structure of the building, giving the narrow and heavy cement building a new life – the bold name of “Lee & Tee House” The house was born. "To complete a product, such as a handbag, it takes a lot of complicated sewing techniques." The young couple who are engaged in the design and manufacture of handmade leather goods said that they hope that the house can be combined with both home and studio. Function, this is also an important core concept that the construction team revolves around the renovation of this building. The light lines woven the structure of the building, and the smooth measuring body drives the moving lines in the room, and the old, the inside and the outside are finely stitched into different architectural works. The white steel structure with the façade and the ladder-like extension replaces the unnecessary wall and floor and becomes an invisible eave; the rain, the sun and the wind are free to shuttle among them, and the vines climb freely. On, wait for the time to flow into a green ceiling; the air-to-air ladder connecting the third-floor courtyard is a playground for children, climbing between the grids, and experiencing a different form of architecture. Extending such a structure into the interior, becoming the structure of the stairs, the display shelf, and the handrails of the mezzanine, creating a diversified use in the regular design of the mold, and the use of the common vocabulary of the building and the interior enhances the integrity of the work. . Although the floor has receded and the courtyard has become larger, the space is not at all narrow. The penetrating vision and light weight are important secrets to keep the space fresh and open. The green space that is kept in time blurs the boundaries between indoor and outdoor, even if living in The interior can also enjoy the shelter from the sun and shade of the sun. The white body brings out the red brick walls of the existing building, and the streamlined combination of the kitchen counter and the dining table promotes the malleability of the restaurant on the first floor, echoing the brick wall of the bathroom that is also curved in the rear. The empty space provides space for the small trees in the house to extend upwards. Wooden furniture, stair steps, headboards, etc. become a soft blending agent between the chilly brick walls and the white steel bars, leaving a clean white space. Increased the warm texture. The design team is based on the concept of the owner's profession and needs. The detailed steel structure connects the whole building from the inside to the outside, but the facade of Lee & Tee House is obviously not finished yet, waiting for the plant to sketch out more closely. The appearance of "home" - while the family is growing, the building is also with the people, and the year and month have different appearances and move toward a more anticipated stage.
