Chinese multidisciplinary design agency Spring Design Office has reimagined the spaces of ‘Explorative Home’, a residence in Guangzhou, China, to focus on different living experiences through modern interior approaches.
Chief Designer Wu Jiachun reinterpreted the original arrangement of the home’s space in favour of a more flexible and open layout that facilitates intimate interaction among family members and friends. The designer reduced the number of rooms, expanding the scale of the living areas and dividing them via steps and color hues that carefully demarcate different blocks destined to suit different functions. Upon entering the residence, a dining room characterized by irregularly shaped pendant lamps opens into a vast living room, which is separated via a change in floor height. Behind it a multifunctional area serves as a transitional space between public and private zones. Here, a sliding door enables the space to be transformed into a closed room, upon necessity. Contrasting wood cabinets have been introduced to create different experiences throughout the living spaces; minimal and ingenious, they provide convenience, while adding an explorative sentiment to the interior.
Spring Design Office endowed the residence with elegant interior designs that echo the owner’s inclination for modern and tranquil atmospheres. Different material textures, wood colors, neat lines, and blocks combine to enrich the layering of the space, generating a unique spatial aesthetic throughout. The living and private spaces are dominated by a muted palette of blacks, whites, and grays, delicately interrupted by more vividly colored furniture pieces that produce a stunning visual highlight.
