After a day of fast-paced and exhausting activities, what kind of scene would you hope to be greeted with when entering your home? Indoor light and shadows passing through lattice patterns, falling on the Guanyin stone flooring. The serene arrangement of deep hues creates a sense of tranquility, and the intricate lines seem to soften the heart. Opening the entrance door leads to a living space filled with a sense of ritual. Such a well-designed and comfortably sized entrance is not easily enjoyed by ordinary small families. Chun-Cheng Kung, the designer from 10mm, expresses that when people actually visit an entrance with a sense of ritual, most of them yearn for it, and they also value the living space of their home more.
The male homeowner, who faces significant work-related stress on weekdays, desires a space with a sense of ritual. He hopes to come home and unload the accumulated worries of the day, returning to a scene of daily life. Therefore, in the circulation from the entrance hall to the living room, the sense of space is compressed with dark colors, and then the lattice door is opened to enter a bright and spacious home space, using the entrance area to provide a hint of relaxation. After entering, there is a simple living space created with light-colored Japanese Elm, with soft furnishings defining the living room, dining area, and music corner, each location contributing to a serene and beautiful family story. Outside the window, there is a panoramic view from the twenty-fifth floor, capturing the canal and the bay. Indoors, one can enjoy unobstructed views of the city and the layered magnificence of the river and sea. This design keeps the public area maximally open, promoting family interaction. The dining table is seen as the spiritual key of the communal space, with visual focus converging on this area, connecting the living room and dining area. The long table is specially customized, with a tabletop made of two long solid wood panels deliberately leaving gaps for convenient computer wiring when the male homeowner works there.
This is the third collaboration between 10mm and the homeowner. In addition to continuing 10mm's spatial philosophy, the homeowner specifically expressed a preference for wood-tone colors without being visually heavy. As a result, the light and elegant Beech wood was used to create a relaxed atmosphere, and the kitchen was equipped with white Vipp kitchen utensils to match. The interior showcases various art pieces and toy collections, as well as positioning for vintage furniture. Additionally, to accommodate the homeowner's piano practice, a 150-centimeter-wide vintage piano with a nearly century-old history was purchased, becoming an eye-catching collection in the public space.
