Home for everyone’s definition is different, to them, NEST represents the meaning, is small and warm, carrying dreams and hope harbor. The design of this case also provides an effective solution to the problem of home office in the current epidemic situation. We strive to get the idealized state of life they really need, through constant reorganization and integration in a limited space.

The project is located in Minhang District, Shanghai, using an area of about 43 square meters, is a family of three in this bustling city of new shelter. Early communication we learned that the owners and couples engaged in a higher degree of freedom, long hours from home, the need for a relatively independent work area. Owners will also publish some food videos on the website, so the kitchen modeling requirements are also higher. All the lifestyle habits of the owners are very personal, and we have made a lot of interesting attempts in these 43 square meters to meet these unconventional functional requirements.

The design of the whole space is intended to meet the basic requirements of the function, forming a smooth moving line and bright living space. Partition more reasonable wall and made a big change, on the basis of the original, the main bedroom added cloakroom fit the needs of the owner. The designer removed the original sub-bedroom partition and separated the original public walkway and sub-bedroom space into office area and children’s room. Considering that the main lighting of the whole unit comes from the south balcony, the designer applies the commonly used water grain glass brick in the commercial space to the residence, while keeping the privacy, introducing the natural light into the workshop with great possibility, and finally introducing the light into the innermost restaurant again in the way of the end view window. The sunlight condition is abundant during the day, the light penetrates and extends naturally in the space, through the water grain glass refraction will shape the space extremely delicate hazy.

What we want to present is the mapping of the living state of the owner to space. The kitchen emulates the Japanese commercial space processing technique, the massive wooden, the metal iron art and the retro glass repeatedly uses in the space, has set off the entire space comfortable atmosphere feeling, closer to the life. Abandon the living room sofa of the regular residence, share good food with 3 or 5 friends in the open kitchen dining room; children no longer watch TV play in the living room, instead of the best daylight balcony for parent-child games.

The toilet adopts the design of the sliding rail barn door, and the blackboard paint treatment of the door board provides the function of display, which is also a good graffiti board for the daughter. Viewing from the kitchen, complete shooting to the kitchen bar and blackboard door to facilitate the owner’s shooting.

Storage and storage designers also considered, in the bathroom outside the storage cabinet and shoe cabinet instead of the original wall. Most of the entire space using door-shifting design, restaurants also to custom bar instead of traditional landing table, as much space as possible to increase the use of space.

The cloakroom separated from the main bedroom ensures the purity of the bedroom function, considering the independence of the balcony function of the daughter’s room, the designer placed the washing machine and dryer in the cloakroom, because of the proximity to the kitchen, it is not difficult to walk water, and under the washing machine with marble board as waterproof treatment.
