Appreciation towards TURING DESIGN ( for providing the following description::


This project is an old folk house with inner courtyard, located in the East Zhonghua Gate Historical Culture Block,NanJing. Curtilage Artisan is a studio established by a group of returnees. They are managing solid wood floor, solid wood board table and different type of wooden furniture. The design kept the original structures of the old house, repairing the ground in the original courtyard space, to set up the firm ground and sandstone and retain the architectural features of the old residential buildings. It also injected new vitality and possibility into space.

The outer facade of the show window using white iron sheetplus sculptureand hollow out to become the main LOGO, the outer facade also become the main visual image. It’s also the best background for the tourists to take pictures. Replace the original small and complicated doors and windows with large scale windows and open folding doors. Effectively improve the natural light in the indoor area.

A white building is setting up in the original buildings, to create a concept of house in house.It’s the center of the whole space, the bar can also be used as cashier; upper inter layer is available for VIP guests to communicate. Blue is the main color of the Curtilage Artisan. In the entrance and bar, blue wall is used to inject new colors and vitality into the whole space. We use white terrazzoto make the walls and ground in this space, white iron sheet and white paint can create a pure space, making strong contrast of the original wood structures, doors and windows. Materials contrast well with colors; improve the visual effect to a higher level.
