“I don’t do special effects. I do characters. I do creatures.”好莱坞知名电影特效大师史坦．温斯顿（Stan Winston）曾说过这么一句话。他想表达的是特效从来做的就不仅仅是表面华丽的声色效果，而是真实地创造一个全新独特的角色或是生物。而金棕时寓的产出和这个观点的阐述不谋而合。在设计构思前期，从相处过程中，感受业主本身前卫的思维和创新的精神，以及融合了业主非常喜爱的电影－创：光速战记（Tron: Legacy）这部电影带来的启发，虚、实交替、勇敢无畏、冲破既有束缚是主要的设计发想点。而过程中设计师也搜集了许多Bauhaus思潮的相关资料，将细节精准要求，美学与实用性得以结合。 Bauhaus这个词是现代主义建筑师Walter Gropius将德文Hausbau（房屋建筑）一词调转成Bauhaus来作为校名，以显示Bauhaus的教育理念将与传统学院式的学校有所不同。
“I don’t do special effects. I do characters. I do creatures”, Stan Winston, a famous movie special effect master from the Hollywood, once said it. What he tried to express was that what special effects do from the beginning is not merely creating a gorgeous effect for sounds and visuals, it is to truthfully create a brand new and completely unique character or a creature; such expression coincidentally matches the idea behind the creation of “Golden Stream”. During the preliminary stage of the design drafting, the owner’s own avant-garde thinking and innovative spirit can be felt from the progress of getting along. It also fuses the inspiration from a movie, Tron: Legacy, which is one of the owner’s favorite movies. The major design ideas are the interchange between imagination and reality, brave and dauntless, and breaking out from any existing constraints. The designers also gathered much relevant information about Bauhaus ideology during the process to bring precisions to details. Thus, aesthetics and practicability can be combined together.

Blending Bauhaus functional aesthetics’ exquisiteness and the logical train of thought of movie plots, the whole creation presents a style that did not exist before. It is a method of breaking the definitions in order to use a more novel and impactful visual-language. Using the textures with retro style, and particular color tones saved in people’s mind that can trigger memories to highlight the attempt of “breakthrough in the contemporary form”. There are many design transformations in this project, for example, in the dual color floor tiling with wooden grains, and the application of the lines of turquoise door frame, etc. They all show the perspective of a breakthrough in contemporary with the charm of coexistence between retro and innovation.

However, another kind of detail is made on the other door frame by the dining room; other than using a contrasting material of brass for montage, the middle section on the top of the door frame has a visual effect of disconnected layers achieved by creating an optical illusion with forwarding and backward angles. It is also the ingenuity of the designer. Between the transformations, people would think to understand the style of object at the first sight; however, they can still make an association to a completely different train of thought on each view. It seems to strip away layers of fog for the exploration. Taking another closer look, then one can discover that tracking the sight from the brownish-red round table in the dining room to the chandelier on top, then upward to the top of the room, there is a sprinkler customized to be floating and with mirrors to reflect the space. They set off one another and echo with their shapes. Reflection and smooth curvature make the space gentler.

The Golden streamlined light in the top of the space specifically left by the designer and the unique design of brass pendant columns in the living room create a just-right visual balance. The soft saturated colors for gauze drapes, furniture, functional wall shelves, and the door of master bedroom are combined to turn to cover both functionality and decorativeness. It shows a natural structural aesthetics.

Every space is a story; there are divided into different rooms to deliver different kinds of emotions. Each space will derive its own unique expression and aura. The core highlight of this project is clearly shown via the golden streamlined soft neon light which runs through the entire space. The customized soft neon light is indeed from the ideation coming off the movie, Tron: Legacy’s scene of where the imagination and the reality interchanging. Replacing rigid angles’ changing with smooth and streamlined logic, it gives a force of vitality with infinite imaginations to the living space. One can see that the soft neon light basically runs through the entire space, and it links the materials, decorations, installations, and thoughts together. The reason why both the soft neon light and the decorative brass pendant columns stopping in front of the master bedroom’s door is for the purpose of maintaining a soft and calmly space for users to think independently.

One cannot define the style of Golden Stream with one word. To interpret a new look of the owner’s experienced personality and show it in the space is the primary essence of the design. The more accurate and exquisite technique be used, the more classic final work will be.
