A journey through design

These entries use accomplished designs to express the path they have taken throughout their developments.

The purpose of the A hillside house adds an earthy twist to village residence construction - Ming Ding Spatial Art Studio project is for daily dwelling and living. Inspired by the sedate site backed by mountain and endowed with greenery, designers envisioned a reclusive white hillside house. The project emphasises functionality, and has a distinctive design style within the rural built environment, the minimalist characteristic of the project also differs from the existing built environment of the village echoing the minimalist and calm lifestyle this house promotes.

Urban Eden - China Shanghai Keppel Sheshan Riviera Show Villa challenges richness and simplicity by taking an urban modern approach in this project. Instead of blindly emphasising luxury in this high-end development, the quality of the design in order to explore and reach a quiet and distinguished contemporary urbanity was enhanced. The true meaning of quality of life is simplicity and comfort: people can return to themselves in a quiet and pleasant atmosphere, then can remain to enjoy inner peace. It seems simple and is in fact a type of simplicity which blends smooth elegance, an easy and free attitude and a romantic spirit of abundance.

One West End - Jeffrey Beers International extends the Manhattan Skyline west with iconic architecture by Pelli Clarke Pelli and interiors by hospitality visionary firm Jeffrey Beers International (JBI). JBI approached the project by creating an overarching design philosophy of “curbside to pillow,” meaning that the journey of the resident from the moment they stepped off the sidewalk all the way to when they entered their private residence would be part of a crafted experience with the intention of making them feel at home from the start. 

Located in the historical city of Nanning, Guangxi, China, Tanyue Mansion - G&K Interior Decoration Design Consulting Co., LTD is a sales center of residential property. The design concept comes from the ancient oriental academy building, which is a wooden stone brick structure with rigorous symmetrical layout. Traditional elements come from the evolution and refinement of the roof structure of Zhuang, which is one of the minority groups in China. The interior design is an extension of cultural spirit, the design method is combined with local cultural elements to achieve a more attractive effect, and art installations resonate in spirit, showing the thousand years’ Chinese civilisation and oriental philosophy.
