本案位於高雄小港住宅區,業主為一對夫妻與就讀國小的女兒,夫妻倆對空間風格抱持迥異的期待,男主人在鋼鐵工程師,對金屬鐵件懷有濃厚興趣,崇尚粗獷的水泥工業風;女主人為空服員,心思細膩,樂於接觸各種文化與新鮮事物,憧憬日式的簡約明亮與北歐的人文工藝質感。

經充分討論過後,決定以無色彩的灰佈局工業風基調,大面積選用樂土水泥、仿水泥地 磚、窯變的花磚、黑色鋼刷染色木紋木皮等材質打下灰黑基底,工業風常見的鐵件則藉 由水泥天花板的裸露管線、不鏽鋼洞洞板與傢俱的金屬元件加以發揮。為調佐女主人鍾 意的日系明亮風格,揀選噴白的木絲水泥板、天然橡木實木皮,以及原木色調的設計家 具。構思動線格局時,也以空間開放性與視覺穿透性為優先,讓戶外的自然光線能隨著 日光推移灑入室內,讓灰色空間能依循時間感變化濃淡、飽富輕盈的節奏感。多功能和 室空間透過拉門可彈性調整與客廳的連結關係,提升機能性,也讓光與氣流的穿透有更 佳的連通度。

簡約美學不是遏止物慾的超我修煉,相反的,簡約是在訓練自我檢視何謂真正需要與打 從內心珍惜、喜歡,去除多餘,擺出理想與實際。我們充分發揮簡約設計精神,收納從 「規劃展示」角度切入,例如運用不鏽鋼洞洞板吊掛,不僅一目了然、方便拿取,又可 表現物件的造型美感;衣櫃也從臥室中移出,另闢大更衣室統一收納衣物與鞋包。不做

過多櫃體還可避免佔用空間,密閉式貯藏室可輔助開放空間有更俐落的視覺效果。

越是簡約、寬闊的空間,越加講求傢俱選配,傢俱的色彩、線條、材質、工藝細緻度, 關乎使用機能,更決定整體空間的格調走向。譬如客廳選用 Modernica 的 Case Study® Daybed 系列沙發床與邊桌,V 字腳可減輕視覺重量,搭配 1.5 英吋厚的薄板 硬木框架,展現日式簡約典雅;RH 餐桌採用回收松木與混凝土製成,撞擊出材質的粗

細與時間感;丹麥經典名椅 Y-Chair 結合明朝太師椅的中西混搭,演繹現代古雅的線條 風采;Tonone 的 BOLT 系列鋼鋁金屬吊燈,以六支可調整關節角度的燈臂,表現科技 社會的機械美感,也呼應工業風的金屬性格。這些設計感十足的傢俱優雅立足自己的位 置,秉其工藝內涵相互協調、穿透,在居家聯演一齣精彩的空間情境。

This project is located in a residential area in Xiaogang, Kaohsiung, and was commissioned by a couple with a daughter in elementary school. The couple had vastly different expectations for the style of their home. The husband is a steel engineer, and is very interested in metallic pieces and a rough industrial style; the wife is a flight attendant with a sensitive mind who loves to experience different cultures and new experiences. She hoped for a simplistic and bright Japanese style with Nordic cultural craftsmanship quality.

After a series of discussions, we decided to employ a colorless gray industrial undertone, using a Lotos cement wall surface, mock-cement tiles, kiln colored patterned tiles, and steel wool stained wood veneer to create a gray and black base. The metallic pieces commonly used in industrial designs would be incorporated through exposed pipes on the ceiling, stainless steel holed plating and furniture, and metal elements. White wood grain cement boards, natural solid oak veneer, and wood colored furniture were selected to create the bright Japanese style

favored by the wife. While planning the layout, the primary concern was openness and visual penetrability, to allow natural light to enter the indoor space and creating different shades and rhythms on the gray spacethroughout the day. The sliding door in the multi-functional Japanese- styled chamber allows flexible adjustment of the connection between the chamber and living room, making the space more functional, and improving the light and air flow.

Simplistic aesthetics is not about enforcing strict restraints on material desires. On the contrary, it is about training ourselves to internally reflect on what we really need and care about, and getting rid of the excess to achieve ideal practicality. We fully embraced the spirit of simplistic design. Storage is designed with "planned exhibition" in mind, for example, using stainless steel boards with holes to hang items. This not only makes it easy to find and retrieve things, it also displays the designs of the objects. Closets are also removed from the bedroom, and replaced with a separate, larger walk-in closet where clothing, shoes, and handbags are kept. Space is saved by not using too many cabinets, and a closed-off storage room can give the open space a cleaner visual effect.

The more simplistic and spacious the space, the more crucial the furniture choice and

coordination becomes. The color, silhouette, materials, and craftsmanship all affect the functionality and overall style of the space. For example, in the living room, we chose the Case Study® Daybed pull-out bed and table from the Modernica collection. The V-shaped foot can lighten the visual load, while the 1.5 inch wooden frame displays the elegance of simplistic Japanese design. The RH dining table was made with recycled pine wood and concrete, creating a contrast of textures and ages. The Danish classic Y-Chair combines eastern and western elements by incorporating the designs of traditional armchairs from the Ming Dynasty to create a modern silhouette with classic undertones. The steel and aluminum hanging lamp from Tonone's BOLT collection is made up of 6 arms with adjustable angles, displaying the mechanic beauty of a world of technology, while also adding to the metallic element of industrial styles. This stylish furniture elegantly occupies their own space, coordinating and intertwining within their industrial tones to create an enthralling spatial dialog in the home.
