This is a transformational design that involves work done in different time and space. From consultation to final shooting, it was a very enjoyable design experience. The designer found, when measuring, that the villa had been demolished beyond recognition. Eventually, it took the FF team 14 months of meticulous work to present you with this satisfactory result.

The Building Itself as a View


The inside and the outside of the house seem to be different and independent of each other, but the styles of the both are interconnected and perfectly blended, thus creating a beautiful design. If one perceives minimalism as somehow too simple and cold, the art graffiti on garage door will ingeniously dispel this concern by integrating the fashion trend into minimalism. The landscape also reflects the owner’s needs and temperament to a certain extent. The modernist design technique coincides with the minimalist life concept. The designer changed the original European-style porch to a simple “white box”, and the blocks placed in a seemingly random manner carry a rational thinking logic.

There is fine sand, colorful elephants, and green plants in the garden, where the artistic conception of Japanese dry landscape is modernized and interpreted. From Röshults’ barbecue grills to the recliners and wooden floors, simple geometric shapes run through the whole design. Objects form patterns and patterns create meanings, leaving the space the spectacular purity.

Dismantling and Reorganization


In the face of the fragmented and destroyed interior, how to break this inconvenience through the reorganization of the space has become the key to the design. Priority was given to vertical functional zoning, which divided the first floor to the third floor into public areas and public-plus-private areas.On the first floor, the black slate table placed in the center of the dining room is the first moving route, breaking the originally stagnant atmosphere. The gardening techniques of classical gardens are also cleverly adopted. The specially widened wall opposite the stairs separates but does not clog, blocking the sight and creating different layers. The square hole on the wall introduces the frameless clock behind it to the dining room. The multiple far-reaching visual effects are really fascinating.

The air outlet of the dining room is combined with the light to increase functionality. The sideboard casts blue light over the simple white space, producing a powerful drama and arousing emotional changes. The large area of white space creates simplicity and clearness. Decorations and colors are presented in an extremely restrained manner, leaving the possibility of dialogue, communication and thinking.

The Ligne Roset sofa is placed around the pillars to become the second free moving route in the living room, which connects the fragments smoothly, so that the originally limited area can be transformed into a unique advantage. The dysfunctional decoration is meaningless. Minimalism does not mean emptiness but the right appearance of every single item. The linkage between the kitchen and the living room has strengthened the interaction and communication between people, objects and spaces, and the kitchen has therefore added a social attribute. Without the restriction and interference of the load-bearing column, the island, as the natural division between the living room and the kitchen, on the contrary, presents a wonderful beauty of the structure, and naturally becomes the third moving route.

Stainless steel is adopted to cover the top beams and load-bearing columns so they are visually weakened, and the line of light on the columns further shapes them. In this way, the sense of volume and the spaciousness for the island are completely enhanced. A corner with excellent daylight is reserved for the tea room. The simple and elegant style has reached the balance and fusion of classic and modern in this space.

Harmony with Light


Light is a gift from nature, and also a very special architectural element. Inspired by Louis Kahn’s use of light, the designer tried to free light flow in the space. Several vertical windows in the entrance area are matched with the reflection of the mirror to ensure lighting while avoiding excessive natural light. The rhythmic structure of light and shadow creates a sense of ritual and order when people are entering.

The light spilt is a compelling note. The natural light cast through the skylight of the stairwell, to a certain extent, affects the moving line. The shadows of the hollow iron handrails fall on the white stone steps, telling a story of light and shadow. It suddenly gets dark on the passageway to the terrace on the second floor, only with the glass door introducing natural light and landscape into the interior. One can experience the bright-dark-bright change in the process. This scene reminds people of Tadao Ando’s “Church of Light” and adds a touch of literary poetry to the space. For the low beam near the door, it is better to take advantage of it and make the top surface slope slightly downwards along the balcony. With the black lacquered glass and linear light on both sides of the walkway, the space is thus extended.

Art and Life


The essence of the design is to solve problems. The owner’s wish to see the sports car in the living room naturally contributes to the formal expression of the display, and the garage is therefore designed with display windows. The transparent glass allows the sports car to turn into a special artwork for display in the home. Whether it is in the living room or the dining room, the owner can always see the car. The projection screen reserved in the garage makes the space more functional and one can easily feel as if he was in an open-air cinema.

Wilde once said, “life imitates art far more than art imitates life”. Therefore, the designer appropriately made it less life-like in the design of the living room on the second floor. Cobblestone cushions instead of sofa are in the center. The background is black painted glass with an aperture. The whole scene is quite futuristic and artistic.

Living to the Heart


Looking outward you will see the world and looking inward you will find yourself. If public space is an external display, then residential space is a projection of oneself internally. Although the guest rooms on the second floor are with different styles and themes, they collectively interpret the simplicity, tranquility and comfort of life. The zebra-stripe wood veneer panels instantly bring people into another mood. The vertical lines of black and white tone increase the visual height of the space. They are simple and vivid.

The third floor is a solitary space for the owner. In addition to daily needs, it is more important to build a spiritual world. With the bedroom as the core, the living room, cloakroom, toilet, and terrace are arranged around it to establish a harmonious spatial order and achieve a living experience like a top hotel. Through transparent glass, the boundary between areas is weakened, and the intimate relationship is created in the interaction between “seeing” and “being seen”.

The minimalist design is in every detail. The Antoniolupi shower that is specially selected uses only simple lines to achieve the dual effect of practicality and beauty, and also adds artistic appeal to the space. The living room serves as a link between the inner and outer spaces, integrating tranquility and scenery here. An island equipped with a rotatable desk extends an independent additional work area, discovering more functions in the space.
