我們特別以一塊長 3 米的厚身實木板，代替傳統的影音櫃，其不規則的流線型態，在一室工整、現代的線條之中，注入了原始、輕鬆的味道。
在室內設計過程中我們常思考要加入什麼？今次剛剛相反，不斷思考有什麼可以隱藏甚至捨棄，感謝屋主 Jerry 和 Elaine 的信任，希望你們在這個家生活愉快。
Minimalism : Pursuing the True Value of Life
Minimalism can be considered as an eternal interior design style. A tiny bit more or less makes great differences. Designers need to pay particular attention on details to create space that looks seemingly simple and neat. We have invited our clients to “Dai Sha Ri” with us this time. Let’s see how we refuse, dispose, and leave the succinctness to our place.
Space allocation is essential for interior design, which we always start with. We took down all walls of a small room, and turned this open area into a working place connected to the living room. This is the transformation to make the place appear more spacious. Putting the desk behind the sofa allows our clients to see the TV while working. To facilitate gatherings, we made the desk and dining table with the same height for easy combination.
A corner base cabinet functions as the backdrop of the working place. With the connection of its simple straight lines and same wood grain patterns on the wall, we artfully hid the bedroom door inside this playful little matchbox. A storage combination with irregular-width doors is found on the living room, that we can see how contrasts give a lively rhythm to the concise tone of the design. All doors are unframed and hidden to further develop the pure and precious theme. Abandoning traditional audio cabinet, we choose a 3-metre streamlines solid wooden shelf to create a diversity of elegance and dynamic, which helps to infuse a relaxing atmosphere into this neat and modern design.
Lighting is also equipped in a concise way. You won’t find pendants nor spotlights from the living and dining rooms. Instead, a light trough is installed around the whole ceiling to make the steady white tone lighting. Different from the living and dining room, yellow lighting is applied in the corridor and working place to create warm and modest atmosphere.
The master room shares the same minimalist design. We floored the master room with Finnish oak boards, and let it extended to the bed headboard, so as to create the feeling of warmly embracing by the nature. Heightening the wardrobe and adding light tubes at the bottom, we made this huge one feel light like suspending. A round mirror with back lighting is chosen for softening the strong lines in the master bathroom, which goes perfectly well with the wooden panels.
People might think that interior design is the process of installation. It is partially true. We have demonstrated the skill of hiding and even abandoning this time, and hope you like our design.
Thank you Jerry and Elaine for their trusts. Mapout wishes you a joyful and sweet home.
