Design of TOP 10 Designer
Design by Tiancheng Hu
This century-old building in Shanghai had an Art Deco-influenced style, and the team brought in some contemporary Italian cultural elements. The reinvented house becomes a space where the past meets the future. It offers richer and more diverse and open perspectives on Lao Yang Fang in the current context.
Project Description:The house consists of a two-story main building and a three-story annex behind the main building. NOTHING STUDIO divides the space into an outer area and an inner area according to its functionality. This meets Attila's needs in terms of its branding strategy and integrated business.
At the entrance of the house, a brick wall is connected to a traditional Chinese-style courtyard wall made of red and grey bricks. Between the entrance and the door of the first floor is a patio-like yard paved with parquet marble in a radial pattern.
Project innovation:The facade of the main building is characterized by large windows and glass doors. Numerous hardwood frames collected during demolition were reused for it. The combination of exquisite crafts in Chinese constructions and the Art Deco style of the marble floor provides the vintage feel of an old Shanghai.
The jambs of the doorway were extended upward to match the height of the head jambs of the original windows for a sense of unity to the eye and a visually elevated effect for the space.
The team has hidden all air conditioning units under the windows to protect the structure of the venerable building. This idea comes from NOTHING STUDIO 's rich experience in renovating Aged garden villa and shows the utmost care and respect the team has for such historic buildings.
Design challenge:During the House of Attila project, Nathan Hou, founder of NOTHING STUDIO and chief designer, and his team repaired the entire foundation of the house. They were unable to find materials to match those originally used for the exterior wall and other structures, as construction of the house was completed a hundred years ago.
The team decided to use the woods collected during the renovation and repurpose them in the factory to match the systematic windows. They also installed a thermal insulation system.
The studio invited experienced craftsmen to take care of the color painting and refurb of the exterior walls. They took their time to make sure that the old glamor of the house is brought back to life.
Sustainable development:The designers of NOTHING STUDIO recycled the floors of the old house to repair and reuse them in the renovation. Apart from the environmental aspects, the time-worn floors also revealed traces of passing time and resonated with the original building.
NOTHING STUDIO was founded in Shanghai in 2011 by Nathan HOU, a leading figure in French-style artistic design. The studios’ business spans across premium private residences, commercial spaces, high-end hotels, and much more.
Over the years, NOTHING STUDIO has evolved into a comprehensive service provider for building renovations, landscape designs, interior design and furnishings, as well as art collection advisory. This is the result of our continued focus on French-style design, combining our global vision with deep understanding of Chinese lifestyle, and built upon over 20 years of project experience.
The studio has also established a complete vendor system to support the end-to-end execution of each project, and to ensure our designs are fully materialized into spaces that embodies the vision of their occupants.

Half art, half life life
The high texture of the space is often presented in the simplest and most intuitive form.
"Less is more" less is much, stylist is more with pure white background color, high fixed furniture quality and fine package hide inside, below the diffuse of sunlight, without cold feeling, the magic power of light will the high texture of the space is vividly out.
Living room, it is the shared space in household life.
Designers draw design inspiration from life and build a diversified, full-age and multi-functional public domain. The space is transparent and bright, and the 270 large-area glass window brings the sunshine of Sanya and Xi into the room, greatly ensuring the ventilation and lighting. And the hollow screen of light escape environment, the style of sublimation space, space more possibilities.
Home, is not a reinforced concrete pile of the house.
A house is almost impossible to build. Home, is a place that needs to invest in emotion, wisdom and love, three meals and four seasons, and time together, nourish each other.
Have a private heaven and earth, pretend under the beautiful life, prosperous do not break quiet.
Hermes furniture and art works interact in the space, becoming the center of the vision and the soul of the space, instantly bringing the fashion atmosphere and advanced sense into the space.
Open pattern is the space suddenly open, is the emotional unimpeded.
In the living room is resting, busy in the kitchen, sitting in the dining room waiting for the family members, do not disturb each other and can fully interact.
The background atmosphere of ink texture is just like eating in the landscape. The ring lighting echoes with the solid wooden round table heaven and earth, namely the meaning of "reunion", which is the same emotional distance between people. From the inside and outside is the tone and texture that the designer wants to express.
The gentle and pure wood and the low luxury of the cortex collide in the space. The designer uses a simple but has a sense of design to give the western restaurant a spatial and differentiated personality. Sit by the sunny window and eat breakfast slowly and start a beautiful day.
Forbes magazine has repeatedly declared that the important indicator of quality of life in the future will not be private swimming pools, private gyms, but private wine cabinets.
Simple is not simple, the space is properly separated by the partition, scattered at random, in good order. It is the extension of the designer's thoughtful design ideas, not a simple "pile up" and plain "put". Whether it is together, or alone, thin drunk, the soul will be arbitrary release.
The environment has the effect of reshaping and reconstructing the influence, while the design is to highly refine this positive effect and convey the perceptual resonance between art and spirit.
Peace, tranquility and privacy are the direction of people, and function, aesthetics and art are all pursued by the occurrence of emotion.
The artistic light sense of clear sunlight, tree shadow whirling and white metope, ink charm carpet are integrated, and the four seasons scenery is always in. Gentle, warm, the green branches are blown by the breeze, and the sound of the music together to deduce the impromptu moving movement, romantic, poetic, excited...., feel the spirit of a new emotional joy and wonderful.
Study, it is to link ego and spirit, seek this true space. Everyone should have enough, free spatial scale.
What the designer presents is not only the quality and details of Hermes, but also a noble symbol and the expression of high quality lifestyle.
There are clouds in the poem, beyond the image, beyond the limit; in the ring, the circle is mixed, such as Tai Chi.
"Circle" is an important spiritual element in traditional Chinese culture. Designers try to make the space understand the wisdom of getting along with people, have comfortable and quiet vision, and watch the clouds.
The restraint of material and invisible texture shorten the distance between space and people, and balance the natural light and the texture of space, resulting in the comfortable and comfortable living space.
This is a kind of design and inspiration from nature, the light and shadow are refracted in the air and diffuse, the lines are infinite extension, the space is invisible more graceful and clever.
Continue the minimalist and pure, strong and clear lines and soft bed products visually form a strong aesthetic style, collision out of diverse space charm and comfortable atmosphere.
Through the collision of color, exquisite material and minimalist layout, the integration of high luxury and comfortable space is realized. Free, casual, fresh, pure......
Pink is the color of the girl's color, the bubble rising up in the laughter, carrying the girl's dream, into the colorful round hanging painting, into the chandelier that can be lit. Childhood time is like a dream, pure and full of fun.
High-set luxury is still villa, minimalist artistic life, pure tone, flowing lines and spatial structure are integrated, in the transformation of point, line, surface, square and circle extension, launched the exploration of the future high-quality life.

I’m waiting here for your return
B&B is a kind of small accommodation carrier where the host participates in the reception for visitors to experience the local nature, culture, production and life styles. In the current environment, it has evolved into a deeper emotional requirement for accommodation. It cannot be regarded as a fixed, immutable concept, but as a spatial unit of social travel that is constantly being constructed. Hence, the functional identity for comfortable space and the social identity for elite space put forward deeper requirements for the logical relationship among leisure attributes, social attributes and daily attributes of living space.
Wu Shi B&B project is located in Heshun Town of Tengchong, the most famous border city in Chinese history, Baoshan City, Yunnan Province. Heshun is an ancient town with a history of more than 600 years, where the Han culture of the Central Plains, the cultures of ethnic minorities in border areas, and the cultures of South and Southeast Asia merge. Tengchong's buildings are mainly wooden structures. After combing and analyzing the target customers thoroughly, the designer has fully combed the construction of the internal living space. In order to make guests immerse in the living space of the ancient town, designers are supposed to start from the guests' expectations for life, and to define the character and functional requirements of the space more broadly. So, in this design, the designer redefined the user of the space, and hopes to place a comfortable space carrier of returning hometown and home into the living space, to incorporate relaxation, life and collection function, and to allow the mountains and the scenery to be seen in the room.
Expecting and creating a different way of life is the starting point for all the scenes
The first home is a space that exists to meet the needs of daily life, while the second home endows "home" with richer dynamic connotations and unique symbols. What the second home embodies is a form of travel that breaks away from modernity and satisfies the need for recreation, as well as a lifestyle of regularity, repetition and cycle. It shows a desire for identity, emotion and authenticity. The experience of living in the second home is the process of deconstructing and reorganizing the "home", which constitutes a "home" with the original dwelling and the unique flowing space.
Feel things with your heart when landscapes surround
In addition to practical functionalism, the second home emphasizes the user's spiritual satisfaction, and uses space to response the extreme ego viewpoint of individuals towards "things". The earliest B&B in China evolved from the family hotel model which affords accommodation and breakfast. In fact, the concept of the second home in ancient China was often a courtyard or a villa built by literati and refined scholars outside the scenic mountains. The cultural characteristics and spatial types contained in Chinese traditional architecture are contained in this complete system of landscape, poetry and painting.
The design concept of Wu Shi just comes from thinking about this system.The second home is designed for the social elite. Living in big cities, possessing certain economic strength and social status, they hope to enjoy a vacation experience outside of urban life in the natural environment. At the same time, the architectural language of the house type and the design pattern of the space continue the compatible interaction between the inside and outside of the traditional garden, and the boundary between the courtyard and the interior is eliminated by the oversized glass windows.
The designer has organized the space of the first floor around a preserved 60-year-old Cyathea spinulosa. The lofty atrium and the dining-hall continue the wooden architectural style of Heshun ancient town, making each functional space continue in the architectural form, which forms a sense of unity.
The Tea-Horse Road with a long history has been lying there quietly, with one end connecting the infinite past and the other end connecting the infinite future. It witnessed generations of young men with dreams of getting rich leaving their hometowns for diverse places, told of their yearning for hometowns, and poured out the loneliness of their wives. Those who have made their way around the world have come back here with enthusiasm for their hometown. The imprint of their travels has accumulated continually in the form of houses, artifacts, culture and so on. Sometimes they would gather around the stove and reminisce about their experiences while boiling tea. All of these are the past of the Tea-Horse Road.
The breakfast tables extend the monolithic space into the reception room, making the two space both independent and interconnected. The dark bamboo curtain becomes part of the interior, allowing natural light to permeate the interior, which makes people continue to experience the outdoor living space indoor.
△Details of the dining-hall on the first floor
The texture and weight of life are often hidden in the details. The texture of a single armchair, spectacular mountain scenery outside french windows and the temperature of the viewing room when the sun shines on it are all telling the state of mind of being in nature.
△Second floor master bedroom and spliced details
The second floor is an introverted resting space. On the design, in addition to continuing to use material downstairs, the designer also strengthened the connotation of the space. In master bedrooms, French windows are positioned to create a four-season space that serves as a second-level living space for users.
△Details on the second floor
The small bar was given pride of place in the backyard. As much as possible, the designer removed redundant decorative elements. Black burnt lumber established neutral, rational keynote in color. Luminescent membranes and linear luminaires make the night color of Wu Shi more relaxed and mild.
△The bar in the backyard
The sunken courtyard brings in diffused natural light, making it quiet and introverted enough.
2 △The hustle and bustle is hidden in the mountains
Wu Shi is not an indifferent attitude, but a life state of letting go and returning home. It can allow the transform and connection among life, work and society to balance the hustle and bustle in urban and the nature flavour in rural in a new way. The prototype of the ideal home of many people of vision in Chinese history is just the literati's garden, which reflects the real world into the spiritual world.
△Overall detail drawing of the first floor
The suspended ceiling on the first floor is decorated with wood, allowing the view to extend to the outdoor courtyard. The interior stones and Luminaires bring a modest and luxurious space feeling to the open dining-hall.
△The master bedroom on the second floor
△The bathroom in the master bedroom on the second floor
△Children's Room on the second floor
The bedrooms on the second floor are designed with simple shapes to create a warm and relaxed atmosphere. In front of the French window, the man who sleeps with the star river melts into nature the first minute he wakes up in the next morning. As a B&B, the public area on the first floor provides a variety of living experiences and leisure functions. The lofty atrium and reception room become the center of gravity of the whole B&B space. The warm coffee color carpet neutralizes the sense of geometry of the classic modernist furniture. The Cyathea spinulosa which lived at the same time as the dinosaurs in the courtyard and the water feature in the atrium add radiance and beauty to each other, which makes it a unique place to meet people.
