二、Peking House Villa
Regarding the spacing design, the basic structure was to satisfy the modern lifestyle, using one central pivot to connect all the spacing of three floors. The 1st floor and the basement are planned as the public space when the 2nd floor is designed to be the private space. When you enter the door, you will see a central pivot corridor which is 2.5 meters wide connecting the living room and the dining room/kitchen on both sides. The basement extends the concept of pivot corridor, connecting the audiovisual room, tea and meditation area, gym and workout area, and the study room where the designer uses the idea of atrium to bring in bright daylight. The reading room in the basement is a place suitable for the whole family to spend their leisure time. On the outside is a patiostyle balcony, which allows the basement to get plenty of sunshine. There is a little pond outside the balcony, and there is a curtainlike water wall extending into the ground. The ancient elders say, “The wise enjoy the waters.” That means a place near the water is the most suitable place to relax and meditate. Therefore, the idea is to construct a wooden platform that extends into the indoor tea meditation area and the workout area, in order to penetrate the inner and outer space. Then, the steps gradually lead the platform into the multi-function area inside the house.
As to the whole central pivot, T.K.Chu uses frames and tactics of magnifying the ceilings and walls, thus the corridor becomes a dynamic gallery. As to the scene of every entry, the design was to make the wall shrink back, inlaying the exhibitions. Using the tactic of displaying ornaments and separating the spacing, you will find it more and more interesting when your visual focus changes with every step. The corridor, which was originally a dull transition space, is now displaying fine furnitures and the unique ornaments of flowers. Under the refection light, everything becomes vivid and exquisite, leaving a foreshadowing of what is come in the next spacing.
The housestyle of T.K chu is to be combined with eastern and western culture, with an emphasis on comfort. Therefore, he chose furnitures with succinct lines, with matching simplified Chinese window lattices and detailed ornaments. T.K.Chu believes that Chinese aesthetic mind is a kind of corresponding relationships. Because the Chinese have observed nature for ages while experiencing many ideas and natural phenomena; when this kind of idea was applied to the creation of home living space, we sought to be in harmony with nature instead of attempting to conquer it. Therefore, the space array arrangement was a reply to the external environment, with every detailed display and furnishing echoing each other during the usage of this concept. The idea was to use modernism to emanate the Chinese style refinement by contrast, using simplicity to exhibit the delicate beauty, thus expressing the characteristics and richness of the modern Chinese culture.
