Behind every wonderful project, there will be a wonderful story.
初 - 见
早在几年前，在我的一次小型分享会上，认识了委托人之一的小危。小危也是一名设计师，主攻软装。基于作为设计师之间对于彼此设计理念的认同感，我们经常会对一些设计认识与想法展开或深或浅的交流。在交流的过程中，也曾产生过如果有合适的项目可以一起尝试的念头。只是没想到，第一次的合作，便是她自己参与投资和策划的民宿 —— 大理行山。
The encounter with Xingshan inn is not just a pure business activity.
As early as a few years ago, at a small sharing meeting of mine, I met Wei, one of my clients.Wei is also a designer, focusing on soft outfits. Based on the sense of identity as designers with the design concept, we often exchange some ideas and cognition about design. In the process of communication, I accidentally mentioned that , we should try it together if there is a suitable project. But I didn't expect that the first cooperation would be Dali Xingshan inn, a home-stay she participated in investment and planning.
再 - 见
See it again, in Dali.
Xingshan inn is adjacent to Dali Panxi Wharf. There is only a bicycle path around the sea from Erhai Lake, which is almost an excellent geographical location along the sea. But the problem is this -- a large number of sequences of coastal building suffered varying degrees of pulled down due to the renovation of Erhai Lake.The original building of Xingshan inn was not spared. The original buildings to be split after cutting is very complex, only two abrupt house, the original architectural form no longer exists, and the few remaining buildings can vaguely predict the original courtyard form.
Therefore, it is the most important component of our space design that how to make the best use of the sea view conditions under the premise of meeting the policy and create the space atmosphere of small courtyard again.
退 - 后
The design began to unfold gradually.
But this time, we did not start this design journey through meticulous business and architectural logic as before. But through more perceptual listening, to get some sound. Ask and perceive. Let this broken land echo, and then find the basis of design from the echo, find the direction of empathy.
First of all, find the basis in the original building and geographical environment .The building needs to be shaped again. But reshaping is not without framework. The voice of the policy tells us that the buildings around the lake must be adjusted and reconstructed on the basis of the buildings that follow the Dali residential buildings, and retain iconic elements such as White walls and Grey tiles. Therefore, the reconstruction of buildings cannot be expressed as an architect's way of thinking. So, we respect the customs of Dali, and we understand the policy orientation. As designers, we need to step back.
Second, we need to listen to the voice of the manager. As those who entered the Dali home-stay industry earlier, they have their own personal understanding of business needs, guest preferences, and control of input costs. What is good design? Here, there may not be a standard answer. What we need to know is how to make a differentiated and holiday-like space design while satisfying its business needs within a controllable cost investment. Therefore, we also need to step back.
Finally, facing Dali, facing Erhai Lake, facing such a small courtyard. We also need to listen to the voice of the user.
So, we think from the perspective of a tourist, if we come to Dali, what do we want to get? What do I need to see? What kind of state do you want to experience? Finally, we found that the design we routinely recognize is actually not that important. The important thing is that this is Dali, open the window to look at Erhai Lake. Therefore, we stepped back again.
The design will be melted into the space, into the scene, and make more comfortable.
遇 – 见
By the time the project was completed, it was already May. The rainy season begins in Dali in May. There is no bright sunshine, but there is more tranquility between the mountains and seas, which is more suitable for indulging in the trouble-free daily life. Xingshan inn is a small courtyard suitable for such a state of mind. Waiting to meet you.
The exterior walls decorated with a little wood, the cozy tea room, the transparent and exquisite courtyard, and the lake view guest rooms make up the xingshan inn. Backwardness of the design may prevent Xingshan inn from becoming an amazing beauty at first sight, but it makes you feel like it's a place to be close, to be dependent, to feel breathing together. It allows her to be right here, blends with Erhai Lake, with Dali, and with users.
Because I don't want the design to disturb this tranquility.
