Returning Hut (Residence) by Rita Chow
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Due to the client's longing for natural environment and original life, he has been wishing to own a paradise-like house in a valley far away from the city where he and his families could enjoy a quiet and leisurely life. The hut reflects the life attitude pursued both by the owner and designer: return to nature, be humble, simple, unadorned and pure. The essence of design is to weaken design, which means that the designer should forget about the design and even return to a state of void.
Creativity
The site is located on a wild hillside surrounded by mountains and forests and facing the sea. Its geomorphic feature is unique and the surrounding environment is tranquil and peaceful. Built at the foot of the mountain and beside the forest, the hut hides in the valleys and retains and uses to the greatest degree the natural rocks and trees.The design style of the interior space is simple, elegant and natural, showing respect for nature.
Design Challenges
Affected by factors such as construction conditions on the hillside, the special structures and construction period, etc., construction craft failed to reach the desired result and there are some flaws. Yet, on the whole, the completed hut reflects the life attitude pursued both by the owner and designer: return to nature, be humble, simple, unadorned and pure.
Production Technology
The plain wall is mainly made of natural materials such as bluestone, slate and solid wood etc. and without excess decoration. It reflects the essence of space and materials and presents a space where nature coexists with human. Through reasonable functional planning and use of simple lines and structures, and together with adopting simple and natural furniture as decoration in the space, a simple but cozy and warm living space is built.
