A residence for my dad and mom of their age 60s. Though the positioning is broadly bordered by a street on the south, it’s surrounded by homes, and easily counting on the south aspect of the street doesn’t present a way of safety. The location lacks a bodily scale, so I questioned how I might create a small, human-like house.
I needed to create an setting with depth and a way of safety, like a cave, by rigorously accumulating small spatial experiences inside a easy and beneficiant constructing with a single giant roof. Though the whole ground space is compact at just below 77 sqm, the backyard, earthen ground, and LDK are related by a big roof, creating a way of spaciousness that’s by no means cramped.
The house for vehicles, which is important for day by day life, can be spacious. The move line from the built-in storage to the doorway by way of the eaves will deliver a way of spaciousness to day by day life. Relating to the supplies utilized in numerous components of the home, it was important that they be rustic, heat, and “touchable. It could sound like a cliché, however we overwhelmingly emphasised “high quality over amount”. This was a possibility for us to suppose deeply about what “high quality” means for the life of their ultimate residence.
My dad and mom, who’re nonetheless energetic, are steadily getting older. Wishing that they are going to be energetic all through their lives, I hope they’ll spend their days feeling the richness that abounds of their abnormal lives as a spot to greet their lives.
Water droplets shining within the morning solar after watering the backyard timber.
The dazzling contemporary greenery on the home windows.
The gorgeous ceiling enveloped by the mirrored mild from the earthen ground.
The northern sky lower out by the window, which is rarely the identical.
The low winter daylight shining by way of the timber on the earthen ground.
The sound of the wooden range’s flame crackling.
The way in which the structure ages superbly together with its inhabitants.
On a regular basis life appears calm and abnormal.
Nevertheless, should you look carefully, you will notice how the world is stuffed with change.
I want my dad and mom to really feel the happiest of their abnormal day by day life.
