The Story / Povestea



Un proiect residential dezvoltat in parteneriat cu EBU architects din Shanghai, in provincial Hunan, China. Designul a fost guvernat de principii impuse de client in brieful original.

Fiind o zona rezidentiala scumpa, sentimentul generat de locuinte trebuie sa fie unul privat, dar in acelasi timp sa ofere senzatia de spatii vaste, desi loturile sunt de dimensiuni reduse. Acest tip a fost gandit dupa principiile designului modular, astfel putand fi grupate in functie de layoutul loturilor.

Pentru a gasi cea mai buna varianta pentru acest proiect, am cautat sa urmarim principiile folosite de arhitectura traditionala chineza, care foloseste curtile interioare pentru a transforma spatiile mici in oaze de calm si discretie.

A residential complex developed in partnership with EBU architects in Shanghai, for Hunan Province in China. The design for this particular project is revolving mainly around two principles, stated by the client in his original brief.

Being a high end residential area it must have very private feel, but at the same time voluptuous spaces, that revolve around the center of the house. They are designed as modular layouts that can be grouped according to the plots.

In order to come up with the best concept for this project, we diverted our attention towards the traditional Chinese courtyard building style, and learned how they used confined spaces, and made them work as small retreats, that induce a strong sense of calm, protection and privacy.
