SIMPLICITY AND RETURN TO NATURE
"Less is more"-Collision between minimalism and nature to reveal the beauty of ecology in modern spaces.
This case is located in Nan'an,Fijian province. A city with long history and talented people. The city is also known as ‘WuRong’. Nan’an was set up here since the Three Kingdoms period, it has been standing for nearly two thousand years. The area seats along the mountains and by the sea. After several decades, this area developed its own regional cultures, generation and gathered talented people. Thus, it is honored as “Zou and Lu on the seaside” .
The designer follows the concept of "Less is more". In this case the solution is through minimize interior decoration. In order to create an in-out experience and a sense of richness. The picture window is used to draw the exterior architectural garden features, natural light and the mountain valley into the interior. "Less is more" is quoted by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in the 1930s. This is a design concept that encourages simplicity and opposes over-decoration. Often, people enjoy simple thing because it creates a sense of peace. In the space, line,shape,surface and materials are designed carefully to present this concept. Therefore, the design proposal is a result of minimalist and modern design framework. Overall, by following the minimalist concept, the space convey a simple, integral and grand feeling to the public.
The two-story space connected by the picture window provides a visual treatment to the viewers with spatial enlightenment. The designer intended to use window as a medium to connect the exterior landscape and the interior space. Thus, the design allows the users to define their own unique experience from its perspective.
The design of the bar area in the center is outstanding which reinforced the relationship between the interior features and the exterior landscape. So that the space build connection with the nature. Designer focus on detailing and the selection of materials. Through design addition and subtraction techniques to reach a balance between richness and simplicity.
"Less is more", the meaning of minimalist design is to reduce complex design techniques. The combination between architecture and interior space brings people inside and let them become part of it. Therefore, the connection between human and space, human and nature,human themselves become stronger. Overall, the impact of the space is relaxing and readable.
