Design Practice Location:
This project honours Chinese traditions and customs through its design, taking inspiration from traditional texts and beliefs. In ancient Chinese poetry, the concept of the ‘image’ is at the core. It’s traditional in China to endow certain subjects with special meaning and turn create various images or symbols that will transport people to a different time and space. All these images connect, reflect, and influence each other, expressing deeper feelings and emotions around this home. Serving guests tea is an ancient custom that makes guests feel welcome and relaxed. Inspired by a traditional saying, the designer created a Zen tea room in this home, giving residents and guests the opportunity to come together to honour each other and share conversation. In the bedroom, harmony is achieved and a space has been created for resting, reading or writing in elegant surroundings.
