[Text as submitted by architect] Breaking the traditional stereotype of villas and living environments in the contemporary city, AD Architecture tried to rebuild the boundary in the integrated design of architecture and interior. The project is an exploration of the bottom line of the contemporary living context for urban citizens. Creating a natural, harmonious, and relaxed state in the heart of the city, AD Architecture rethinks luxury villas in this project.
L House is located inside a luxury neighborhood on a small island at the mouth of the sea, along the river to the east. The L-shaped architectural layout results in endless river views in the core living and functional spaces. Staying in the villa is more like standing on a viewing platform by the river to enjoy the sunshine and air.
The silent building, with the power of quietness and a pure white tone, makes everything around it, including the wind, water, trees, sunlight, birds, and fishing boats, become beautiful with sound.
The dwellers are the protagonists of the home, and the space does not exist as an independent entity. Instead, space and people depend on each other. We hope the space is self-oriented to convey an individual personality.
Natural flow outside: The basement of the villa should not be black, which is our attitude towards the exterior space of the building. We inserted a swimming pool with an atrium above it to bring sunlight and air from the outside to the reception space on the basement floor. The flowing water, light, and wind create a natural sense of fluidity and an open, transparent space experience.
Generation of function: Stairs are the circulation route that runs through the overall space, as well as the emotional transition from the open and extroverted to the private and introverted. With the living room on the ground floor as the space center, the two staircases upward connect to form the living room on the second and third floors, and the stairs downward directly link the ground floor living room to the reception space on the basement floor.
The pure white achieves a silent and pure relationship between the living and reception areas in a single architectural space.
When considering the planning of the living space and the reception space, we tried to vertically divide the relationship between the two areas in the same building.
Restraint and retreat: Home is gentle, giving people the power of peace and ease.
The existence of space is quiet and elegant. Although the space has been redesigned, it appears harmonious and modest, which is what it should look like. The overall space is restrained, which is also reflected in the design language, which gives more space to the occupants. The space is an incomplete form of completion and continuity of fun.
Attitude towards home: In residential space, simplicity is not the ultimate goal. Based on the practicality of space, we pay more attention to the relationship between man and nature in space, the living status and emotional appeal at home, privacy and a sense of security, and the character and quality of people and the home. These are the concerns of AD Architecture in exploring the design of luxury homes.
Tranquility, harmony, sunshine, and fresh air – these are the beauties of home that we want to express.
