十八號藝廊 Home Gallery 18
Let the light in to broaden your horizon.
We have discerned the mutability of domestic spaces that change along with the interior settings for some time. In a gallery space, too, the portrait of Mona Lisa sends us to the classical landscape in the sixteenth-century Renaissance. With a Jackson Pollock, on the other hand, we enter the chaotic origin of the universe along with the dripping and weaving of colors and lines in abstract expressionism. Gallery space maintains the purity of whiteness like an enormous canvas to accommodate the possibilities of different modes, styles, and aesthetics. This is the concept of this residential design. The interference of the hardware embellishment on the consciously visible level is reduced to a minimum, while the sheer whiteness of the surface accommodates the elements in the space. The pure datum introduces a liberated atmosphere of open fields. The ensuing relaxation and comfort bring forth the spirited vividness of what home ought to appear.
Rather than maintaining a distinctive character in domestic designs, we tried to release the personal boundaries between classical and modern aesthetics. The two approaches fuse with one another in the space. The modern style constitute the datum of the space. The decorative lines frame the rectangular and curvaceous non-linearity while simplifying them with elegant gestures of the sculptural ornaments. At the entrance porch, the grey tone imbues the ceiling and flooring with monochrome strata that shine on different materials: porcelain tiles, wood, stone as well as grey and glass mirrors. The white fluorescent light accentuates the deflections of colors like the surging wave that embraces the family members. The corresponding classical lines extend from the porch to the study room. The juxtaposition of bulged and recessed lines also reflects the contrast between the solid and the void on the grey mirror. Depth and distance reduce the oppressive sense of the space and, paradoxically, pull everything closer to the eyes by the infinitely extending scale. The introduction of sunlight at dawn and dusk also brings in the ever-changing measure of scenography. The silent and pale grayness seem to absorb all that is surrounding the living room and the dining rooms. As the families move on every corner, the presence of lights and shadows also shifts and enriches the environment.
Home is a place of relax and comfort that resists the framing of styles. A domestic space accommodates both the modern and classical modes summon the beauty, embodying the gathering of dynamic and gentle energies.
