The design style of this project is difficult to define. It’s simple & modern, but with historical charm as well; it seems in western style, but has oriental elements at the same time, intertwining the delicacy and roughness. We use the western minimalist style as the base, adding a subtle oriental Zen style in the details. Replace common artificial materials in the space with natural and vital materials, such as mineral paint and masonry wall. The designer combines the cultural characteristics and his own profession to create a modern house with a combination of Chinese and Western styles.
