The spa-bath­room, com­plete with Swarovski crys­tals and a state­ment Bisazza mo­saic wall, and the mas­ter bed­room with its Promemo­ria bed, are the ul­ti­mate in rest and re­lax­ation.



James says the big­gest chal­lenge of this pro­ject was find­ing the right spa­ces to dis­play all of the home­own­ers’ art­work. "They have an ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion, so find­ing a way to blend them into the over­all de­sign took some plan­ning," he re­calls. To this end, he’s stag­gered pieces by artists Lee Yih-hong, Yang Yu-yu and Hsu Wen-jung, po­si­tion­ing them ex­pertly around the res­i­dence to si­mul­ta­ne­ously high­light and bal­ance the in­te­ri­ors and fur­nish­ings.

It’s hard to pick a pre­ferred lo­ca­tion in this home – each area is unique and in­vites the feel­ing of peace and seren­ity, yet re­mains fully func­tional. For the home­own­ers, their favourite space is where they spend the most time as a fam­ily: the study. This is where they hang out to­gether, read­ing, draw­ing, prac­tic­ing cal­lig­ra­phy, brows­ing the in­ter­net and en­joy­ing each other’s com­pany.

Sur­vey­ing the ex­pan­sive space, James be­lieves that the se­cret in­gre­di­ent to tack­ling this home suc­cess­fully lies in his ex­pe­ri­ence as an ar­chi­tect. This has helped him cre­ate a smooth flow of lines, utilise ev­ery space and al­lo­cate the most suit­able ap­point­ments so that each des­ig­nated area is com­fort­able – and ut­terly beau­ti­ful. //


杜康生表示,工程最大挑戰在於安排合適的空間來展放屋主的藝術品。「他們擁有大量珍藏,要將作品融於整體設計中,真的花了不少時間規劃。」最後,設計師當然成功解決難題,把Yih-Hong Lee、Yu Yu Yang和Wen-Jong Hsu的作品放置於家中各個最理想位置,同時突出及平衡居所的裝潢和傢具。
