Text description provided by the architects. le plan libre

As the architect Mies Van der Rohe proposes "Skin and bones architecture", we try to keep all structure expose with two long horizontal sliding windows. Except for providing the house a spacious view and ample sunlight, the exposed frame and glass blur the line between indoor and outdoor.

The cube extend from the facade is an intermediary space between indoor and outdoor. The stainless steel reflects the blue sky and merges the architecture with nature. On the roof garden, we designed asink in the shape of giant milk box, which is toppled and sprinkled a pool of grass.

Pursue the principal of Le Corbusier’s 5 points of new architecture. Neat facade with nature texture ofmaterial is being used. With atrium in 4m*4m scale, we exposed the beam as a line in great strength to intersect the structure.

To continue the principal of the free plan, we tried through the separation of the load-bearing columns from the walls subdividing the space. The column which in stainless steel and carrara becomes the visual points in the space. Circulation in the second floor flows like a square, across two bedrooms, study room and a game room.

The floor in garage is combined with three kinds of tile that is in different scale. In the end of the garage, we built a skylight on the top to present the linear beauty of modernism.
