The garden design elements provide a quiet and relaxed spatial experience in this shared space. The openness of spaces subtly maintained the privacy. The walls between enclosed rooms are dismantled, the lightweight “three-dimensional box” and folding partitions are designed to divide the spaces into a multi-purpose room and a children’s bedroom, visually unfold the interior space, increasing the flexibility of room layout as well as preserving the privacy. The raised multi-purpose room is both a part of the children’s bedroom and an extension of the living room. The raised platform hides the children’s bed and enriches the sense of space in the living room.
▼室内一览，overall view of the interior
▼没有实墙分隔的开阔空间，open space without walls
▼电视后为与儿童房相连的多功能空间，空间通过折叠推拉木门分隔，multifunctional space connected with the children’s room behind the tv, separated by folded sliding door
▼多功能区中可以收起的桌子，满足多种家庭活动需求，flexible table at the multifunctional space, meeting the requirements of various activities
From the entrance foyer, dining and living room, terrace, corridor to multi-purpose room and children’s bedroom, layers are arranged in different heights, different living functions are visually separated yet connected, the spaces are flexible and harmonious, where playing, doing homework, doing yoga and various activities can be accommodated together with dining and chat, the inhabitants can get along intimately. Natural and simple original materials are incorporated, embellished with a few plants, creating a serene natural scenery in the spatial.
